This is your #DailyGraceCapsule (A Daily Devotional) for today December 15th 2017.
WHAT WILL YOU BE CALLED?
A very close friend once sent me an email but as soon as I read it I knew he wasn’t the one who wrote it personally and I mentioned it to him. He was surprised and confessed to me that his secretary actually sent it on his behalf and he then asked me how I knew.
Very simple I said. The mail was too detailed to have been sent by you and being detailed is not in your DNA; its not who you are. I know who you are and I know what you can do and how you write; I know your identity I told him.
The Jewish leaders came to meet John the Baptist and they asked him a very important question. “Are you the Messiah”, they asked him and John said no I am not. They then asked him if he was the prophet or Elijah and John said again, “No I am not.” The next question they asked was this, “Who then are you?” John replied, “I am a voice from the barren wilderness, shouting as Isaiah prophesied, ‘Get ready for the coming of the Lord!’” John the Baptist knew who he was and most importantly he also knew who he was not.
The questions therefore are these: Who are you are you? Who are you not? What is your identity? The answers are not as difficult as many think; you purpose i.e. the problem you were created to solve is your identity.
Jesus came to save the world and we call Him Saviour. John came to baptize people unto repentance and we call him John the Baptist. Paul taught us grace and we call him the Apostle of Grace. What will you be called?
Point to ponder: - John the Baptist knew who he was and most importantly he also knew who he was not.
Verse to remember: - “He replied, “I am a voice from the barren wilderness, shouting as Isaiah prophesied, ‘Get ready for the coming of the Lord!’” John 1:23 [TLB]
Question to consider: - What will you be called?
Declaration: - I know who I am and I also know who I am not.
