Who Am I?

Stephen Phinney | Len Wood

I grew up stuck between my self-life and that of what people wanted me to be - not only when I grew up but functioning on a day-to-day basis.



I grew up stuck between my self-life and that of what people wanted me to be - not only when I grew up but functioning on a day-to-day basis.


The results of this demise caused me to strive the majority of my life to look or be like someone else's life. The delusional thinking led me down a long path of idolatry - exalting others like gods. The self-activated anecdote was amusing at times. However, it was disturbing to say the least. To this day, I get confusing messages from culture, family, and friends about who I am - with the question of identity.


As I got more settled in my Christian life, I began to see the masses struggling with my "self-identify" deception. So much so, I watched it turn into a culture. Then I watched this new "culture" strive to change Jesus into their "self-identify" deception. After discovering my identity in Christ, I decided to dedicate the remainder of my life assisting others to avoid my well trampled path.


When we ask the question, who am I? we need to avoid looking outward. All of us need to stop seeking what others say I am, and shift to discovering what Christ says I am. However, seeking what Christ says is pointless unless we have received who He is through a born-again experience. Once this step is secured, we then can adopt all of who He is into our daily thinking. Meaning, who and what Jesus is becomes who we are.


In our devotional series, we focus on looking inward. A healthy identity is not something we build or master, it's a rebirth in the reality of a bestowed identity, by grace, through who God the Father says Jesus is. If you authentically believe that Jesus lives inside you after salvation, you can begin to experientially walk out His identity through your beliefs, actions, and mindset. It is that simple. All you need is a little faith.


We will be making use of several authors - authors from the Bible and those our ministry respects regarding this topic. Much of what we post will be from Len Woods and myself. However, we have many author friends that we deeply respect. Look forward to reading quick daily devotionals from each of us.


Greetings, my name is Dr. Stephen Phinney, and I will be your guide as we present to you the Lord's most powerful messages on identity.
