Knowing Who We Are in Christ

Song of the Bird

A man found an eagle’s egg and put it in a nest of a barnyard hen. The eagle hatched with the brood of chicks and grew up with them.

All his life, the eagle did what the barnyard chicks did, thinking he was a barnyard chicken. He scratched the earth for worms and insects. He clucked and cackled. And he would thrash his wings and fly a few feet in the air.

Years passed and the eagle grew very old. One day he saw a magnificent bird above him in the cloudless sky. It glided in graceful majesty among powerful wind currents, with scarcely a beat of its strong golden wings.

The old eagle looked up in awe. “Who’s that?” he asked.

“That’s the eagle, the king of the birds,” said his neighbor. “He belongs to the sky. We belong to the earth — we’re chickens.” So the eagle lived and died a chicken, for that’s what he thought he was.    -Anthony DeMello

Thank God for His Word that tells us exactly who we are in Him!  We have no need to spend our lives wandering, wallowing or wondering who we were meant to be.  “And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do [them]  (Deut. 28:13):”

Not only do we know who we are, but we also know what we have in Christ.  “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that [pertain] unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue (II Pet. 1:3):”

Thank you, Lord, for allowing us to know You and to know who You have called us to be.  Thanks for visiting.   Take care & be blessed.  Please also visit…

    Loved this story! A potent reminder to believe what God says about us, not the lies the enemy whispers in our ears. Thanks.
