Remember Who You Are

 

papa-lionAnd thine ears shall hear a word behind thee,

saying,

This is the way, walk ye in it,

when ye turn to the right hand,

and when ye turn to the left.

Isaiah 30:21

 

For this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus,

who is my beloved son,

and faithful in the LORD,

who shall bring you into remembrance of my ways

which be in CHRIST,

as I teach every where in every church.

I Corinthians 4:17

In Church today, we older ones brought a testimony about someone who influenced our lives for CHRIST. One sister shared this testimony. 

 

When I was preparing  to leave home and attend Bible school, Dad called me to him and said,

” Remember who you are.”   

That has stayed with me throughout my life.  Dad planted his protection in my mind and in my conscience with that admonishment.”

It brought tears to my eyes when she said that. How watchful her Dad was ! He knew the pit-falls awaiting her. What a conscientious  father she must have had, having no way now to keep her safe as she moved into the adult world.  His prayers must have followed her out the door and down the steps as she stepped out into life on her own. 

To each of us, our own Heavenly FATHER speaks the same thing.

HE tells us to REMEMBER WHO WE ARE. 

To Whom+ are we supposed to bear witness ?  We must at all times and in all places REMEMBER we bear witness to CHRIST JESUS HIS SON+. 

We represent CHRIST. 

We are ambassadors for HIM+.

HE+ has formed our character a-new … this time , according to HIS+ standards  of  righteousness. 

We are being watched by both the seen and unseen world and its creatures.

We are also being tested constantly.

So, whether our own Dad was there to remind us about our behavior and his standards or not, we all can rest secure in this: 

our Heavenly FATHER  is still speaking these words of admonishment to our hearts:

Remember Who You Are.

  1. Thank you, good brother, for your response.

    As the Day of YESHUA+ draws nigh, we must WATCH and PRAY … and REMEMBER WHO WE ARE and WHO+ we represent to this dead and dying world.

    May the LORD bless you and all of His+ Watchmen on the Wall.

    In CHRIST, our Life,
    Sr. Judith Hannah + + +
