Who Are We?

5 Jul

Years ago, most people acknowledged that God existed and most
tried to live something akin to Godly lives. Those who didn't 
go to church at least respected those who did. History tells us 
that even our forefathers who wrote the constitution were 
believers. 

As we know, our nation has strayed far away from the values 
of yesterday. Today, your truth is considered to be the truth. 
Moral absolutes that were once a part of our fabric have been
re-woven with our ways. So, as we proceeded to destroy 
Godly principles by committing such acts as taking
prayer out of schools and taking Christ out of Christmas, 
what did we expect?

We have nearly destroyed our foundation. One of 
Merrimack-Webster's definitions of the word foundation is 
"a basis (as a tenet, principle or axiom) upon which 
something stands or is supported. At one point, our nation 
stood upon the fact that God was Holy, true, and sovereign.
Basically, we had reverence for God and believed the Bible
was true.

The Bible tells us that our lives are hidden with Christ, in God. 
If we don't know who Christ is, how will we know who we are? 
Since Satan questioned Christ's identity, wouldn't he certainly 
dare to question ours? When Satan said to Jesus Christ, 
"If you be the Son of God", do this or that, Jesus (assured of
who He was) fought back with the word of God. 
(Matthew 4:3-4, Matthew 4:6-7, Luke 4:3-4,  Luke 4:9-12).

Since our foundation is not as it should be, we don't have the 
capacity as a nation, nor as a people to withstand the 
onslaught of Satan's identity questioning. In addition, many 
people have experienced painful events that are now coupled
with the loss of truth. This combination has erupted in
an assault on God's truth of who we are.

But if the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous 
do? (Psalm 11:3). We can start by remembering who God is, 
and who we are in Him. Study the Bible. God is
holy, and He is also love. What does love look like? It looks 
like God sending Jesus to die on the cross for the sins of him, 
her, you and me, and the world (John 3:16). Who are we? 
We are imitators of God! (Ephesians 5:1,2)
