Spiritual Identity

Motto:

See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is.” (1 John 3:1-2)


You have forgotten who you are!


In 1994, Disney released an animated movie called The Lion King. My wife and I took our children to watch the movie. The story revolves around Simba, a lion cub and heir to the throne. Simba was tricked into thinking he killed his father. As a result of the tragedy in his life Simba abandons his identity as the future King and runs far away. 

A wise monkey, Rafiki, convinces Simba, now an adult lion, to face his past, no matter how painful is it. He told Simba, “Oh yes, the past can hurt. But from the way I see it, you can either run from it, or... learn from it.” A radical change takes place in Simba’s heart after a mysterious conversation with his father. The dialogue between father and son was an absolute game changer for Simba. His father, Mufasa, told his son, “Simba, you have forgotten me.” Simba tried to defend himself, “No! How could I?” Then his father told his son these heart penetrating words: “You have forgotten who you are, and so forgotten me. Look inside yourself, Simba. You are more than what you have become.”

More often than not, we, as Christians do not know our true identity. We run away forgetting our calling and destiny. As Simba was challenged to face his past in spite of the hurt, we too have to look inside and rediscover our identity.

Introduction:


Why people get married? Socrates said, “Stay single, but if you must get married, by all means marry. If you have a happy marriage you will be happy. If you have an unhappy marriage, you will become a philosopher.” 


Seriously! Why people get married?  In this Teaching Letter, I would like to share a few things I have on my heart from the Holy Scriptures regarding “The Meaning of Marriage” and “The Purpose of Marriage.” 


  

1. Marriage is a Gift and a Mystery.

Marriage… Whose idea was it? Where did the concept of marriage and family come from? Who designed it? I hope you agree with me that it was God’s idea. If we look into the first book of the Bible – Genesis, we read that after all the mighty acts of creation God Himself declared that it “was good,” even “very good!” The light and the earth were good, the sun, the moon, and the stars were good, the vegetation was good, all the creatures swimming in the waters, flying in the sky, and living on earth were good. Everything that was created by God “was very good!” (Gen. 1:31). Then, all of a sudden God declared something else: “It is not good”. In verse 18 from Genesis chapter 2 we read: “Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him” You see! God Himself came up with the idea of relationship and companionship. Of course! “God is LOVE” (1 John 4:8).

Introduction:


Some time ago I had my mornings devotions inspired from the Book of Genesis. I asked God to bless me with a fresh rhema from His Word, and He did. One morning I was overwhelmed by God’s Word regarding the coming of the Lord for His Bride. My heart was leaping with JOY! The Groom, the Lord of Lords, is coming SOON for His Beautiful Bride (See Gen. 24:65, Rev. 22:7). Are you READY?


Let me share some of the details I got that particular morning as I was spending time in the Scriptures.

We all are familiar with the beautiful story of Isaac and Rebekah from Genesis 24. To me this story is a prophetic one. In my opinion, beyond the exegesis of this text, there is a message for the Church of our times.


When I read Gen. 24:65, “Who is that man walking in the field to meet us?” my eyes become watery and my heart leaps with joy. Then my mind traveled over all 66 books of the Bible to the last chapter of Revelation: “And behold, I am coming quickly. Blessed is he who heeds the words of the prophecy of this book” (Rev. 22:7).


Church, listen up! Our Groom is ready to come. The question is: Are we READY? The ‘ball’, so to speak, is in the court of the Church. We are the ones who, according to 2 Peter 3:12, are “hastening the coming of the day of God.”
