Our “identity” consists of the personal characteristics that we actually possess. It may change and be different tomorrow, but our identity is not what we ought to be or plan to be: it is a description of the facts about us at the present moment.
Obeying the Gospel
Each day's page from the book "Obeying the Gospel" delivered to you by email. Daily motivation to act on our faith.
Jacob said that Judah would be a "lion." It is no coincidence that Jesus is described in Revelation 5:5 as "the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David." He is the very King prophesied by Jacob when he blessed his sons (Genesis 49:9,10).
If we're in Christ, the result of God's justification is that we are "heirs." Eventually, we will hear Christ say, "Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world" (Matthew 25:34).
Jesus spoke boldly about the kingdom of God. If we find ourselves challenged by what He taught concerning the kingdom, it's because we need to be challenged. Whether we will allow God to rule in our hearts or not is the central concern of the gospel.
