Passion: WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?


This is a question in our present time that looks provocative. When one ask you this type of question, I can imagine some words and thought that will bobble out from your mind like “what kind of question is this? Is this person trying to insult or challenge me? Etc,” nevertheless come along lets break this rhetorical question in a different dimension. Ok, take a break, lets repeat the question-”Who Do You Think You Are?” Do you think you are handsome/beautiful, rich (to some extent), bold, irresistible, satisfied, well-connected, superior, etc? Alternatively, do you think you are ugly, poor or even average, shy, unsatisfied, rejected, inferior, etc? I belief you are the right person to answer these questions genuinely. 

Well, if you think you are handsome/beautiful, people can’t stop to admire you- “what a beauty or handsomeness?” Guys look at you and Wow! Ladies see you and trip for you. Nevertheless, does it last? Assuming you are 23 of age now: very young, handsome/elegant, etc; after 27 years will you still be that guy ladies see and trip or will you still be that lady guy see and say wow! The answer is capital “NO”. Is that an achievement or will you add it to who you are? The word of GOD said that beauty is deceitful. I belief (I don’t know about you) that it is better for your creator to call you-my handsome/beauty; in other words, it is better to be beautiful/handsome in the inside.

Ask yourself, Am I kind, a peacemaker, patient, honest, humble in mind, forgiving, caring, obedient to my creator (GOD)? Colossians 3: 12-13( Put on therefore, as the elect of GOD, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, long-suffering; forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye). Again ask,- Do I have the fear of the one that knows my tomorrow, keeps me healthy, saves me from accident even near miss, knows my end from my beginning, love me even when am in bad situation with no friends to help, do I fear my creator (GOD)? The scripture said in Job 28:28( . . .the fear of the LORD, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.), Proverb 1:7 (The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction).

As a married person, you are rich or even average and you have two or more children that are very intelligent, beautiful/handsome, and many other things you’ve ever desired; that made you feel satisfied, superior, etc. Well, that is what all desire but is that among criteria of who you are?

‘Well-Connected’, this is what in our present time men want to implement. I ask myself this question (I don’t know about you), “I know it is good to have much connection but does it add to who I am?”

“Enjoy Your Life, For Life Is But Once”. This phrase is good and appalling to young and old including me but to some extent I found out it isn’t, through the scripture in Ecclesiastes 11:9 (Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth and walk in the ways of thy heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things, GOD will bring thee into judgment).

Bringing it down to our present time: clubbing, tricks, been a ladies-man, lying, sleeping around even after marriage, duping, wearing expensive cloth (its good but not to be an habit), forming cliques, and most importantly drinking with friends (it is not bad to drink because the scriptures made us to understand that it helps to ‘forget’ sorrows but remember not to ‘remove’ sorrows. To be drunk, even for a bit makes it a sin), etc; all these are seen as fun and enjoyment.

I believe that at 40 of age, you are still a youth; think on this verse in Ecc.12:1 (Remember thy creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shall say, I have no pleasure in them)

There are things that are yet to be said, but see this as if you are talking to your inner mind. I wish to invite you to meet this special guest, who knows you more than you know yourself, loves you more even when you’ve committed crimes you think that cannot be wiped out, cared for you when everybody rejected you, understands you when your best friends and everyone don’t, wish you to be in good health always. HE gives riches and honour that are genuine and lasting-(proverbs 8:17-21 :- I love them that fear me; and those that seek me daily shall find me. Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness. My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold,...) (proverbs 10:22:- The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and HE addeth no sorrow with it.); HE is JESUS CHRIST. He loves you that’s why He came and died for you that you might live.( Romans 5:18:- Therefore, as by the offense of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life). You are special to Him. The word of GOD said, “Ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood...”“ye are the light of the world...”.

Come, Accept Him and He will make you confidently discover who you really are, even when you would not be found in this spherical shaped planet.

A popular philosopher said, “Hell begins the day that GOD grant you the vision to see all that you could have done, should have done and would have done, but did not do.” Don’t Be Deceived, Make The Right Choice.

If you’ve sincerely made up your mind to love and worship GOD, just kneel in your quiet place and ask GOD for mercy and promise who HE created you to be; HE is faithful and just to forgive and cleanse you of all unrighteousness. GOD is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all you can ask of HIM.


GOD BLESS YOU!!!
