Have you ever wondered, “Who am I?” or “What is my purpose?”  Does your life ever feel out of control, like it is happening to you?


What if you were created on purpose for a purpose?

In the Bible, identity is a fundamental theme that is woven throughout its pages. From the opening pages of Genesis to the closing chapters of Revelation, the Bible speaks to the core of who we are, where we come from, and our ultimate destiny.

“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them."
This verse highlights the idea that all humans are made in the image of God, giving us inherent value and worth.”

Genesis 1:27

The Bible teaches that our identity is rooted in our relationship with God.


In the beginning, God created humanity in His image and likeness, giving us a unique identity and purpose. This identity was characterized by a close relationship with God, as well as a responsibility to care for and steward the earth. However, humanity’s rebellion against God in the Garden of Eden resulted in a fractured relationship and a distorted identity.

Throughout the Old Testament, we see God’s desire to restore this broken relationship and bring His people back to their true identity. He chose the nation of Israel as His special people and gave them laws and commandments to guide them in their relationship with Him and with one another. Despite their repeated failures and disobedience, God remained faithful to His promise to bring about their redemption and restore their identity.

1 John 3:1

“See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.”

In the New Testament, we see the ultimate expression of God’s desire to restore our identity through the person and work of Jesus Christ.

Jesus came to earth as God in the flesh, offering Himself as the perfect sacrifice for our sins and reconciling us to God. Through faith in Jesus, we are adopted as children of God and given a new identity as part of His family. This identity is characterized by forgiveness, grace, and the hope of eternal life with God.

In addition to our identity as children of God, the Bible also speaks to our identity as members of the body of Christ. In 1 Corinthians:12, Paul describes the church as a body made up of many different parts, each with its own unique function and purpose. Just as each part of the body is important and necessary for the body to function properly, each member of the church has a unique role to play in fulfilling God’s purposes on earth.

The Bible speaks to our ultimate destiny as believers in Jesus.


In Revelation, we see a vision of the new heavens and the new earth, where God will dwell with His people and wipe away every tear. This is the ultimate fulfillment of our identity as children of God, where we will experience the fullness of His love and presence for all eternity.

Your identity is characterized by forgiveness, grace, and the hope of eternal life with God.  Here, now, and in eternity.
