SERMON: “Do You Know Who You Are” (1 John 3:1-3)

eagle“Psychologist, Erik Erikson coined a term – “identity crisis” – where especially in one’s younger years, there’s a conflict that happens, whereby one doesn’t know where you fit in/belong; one doesn’t know your purpose; etc. Sadly, spiritually speaking, there are many Christians today, who are walking around with a spiritual “identity crisis”. Life gets tough,we get beaten about, and the devil whispers lies like: “You are going through all this “stuff” because the Father has disowned you! He has deserted you! Friend, if your circumstances are leading you into a spiritual identity crisis, where you are forgetting who you are in Christ. You are failing to recognize your position as a forgiven, redeemed child of God – may these words from John, reverberate though every nook and cranny of your heart: “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!…. 2 Dear friends, now we are children of God, “ (1 John 3:1-2)”

About SAMWAY

Hi. My Name is Wayne. If I were to introduce myself by what I have done, work-wise, I would have to introduce myself as a Preacher, a Pastor, a Family & Community Worker, a Student, an Air Traffic Controller, a Post Office Counter Assistant, a Mail Sorter, a Unit Trust Administration Officer, a Butchery Delivery Driver, a Teacher. These are some of the various positions I have held to-date over my lifetime. The periods I have occupied these roles for range from a few hours to a few years. More important than introducing myself by what I do (or have done), allow me rather to introduce myself by who I am. I am a Born Again Christian (who treasures his Lord), a Husband (who treasures his wife), a Dad (who treasures his sons) and a Minister of the Gospel (who treasures the Word of God). I pray that whatever is posted on this site will serve to bless and encourage you.
