The late pastor/author A.W.Tozer once said,

Theological knowledge is the medium through which the spirit flows into the human heart, yet there must be humble penitence in the heart before the truth can produce faith.

What Tozer is basically saying is we need to be aware of our sin and who we are if we are to ever see the Word take root and the Spirit work through us. God can’t use a stubborn, arrogant person who is always getting in the way. Let me rephrase that since God can do whatever He wants. It makes it harder for Him to work since He has to sort through all the junk.

My sermon this week will be focusing on Romans 12: 3-8, a passage of Scripture which deals with who we are and what we can do as part of the body of Christ. As such there are three questions every follower of Christ needs to find the answer to…or know the answer to.

  • Who am I? This deals with our identity.
  • Where do I belong? This deals with our security.
  • What am I supposed to be doing? This deals with our significance.

My goal is to help people find the answers to those questions, or at least start seeking them. I’d appreciate your prayers as I continue the series “Transformed.”  Meanwhile, can you answer those three questions for yourself?

    I am a child of God. I belong in heaven. I am suppose to be doing what Jesus came to do, seek the lost. Powerful questions.

  2. RodneyOlsen says:

    Yes, I can answer those questions.

    The harder part is getting out of God’s way so that the answers to those questions become more and more a reality in my life.

  3. Wow, such powerful questions, Bill! I am God’s child, I belong in His loving arms, and I am to do the work He has called me to do.

  4. Dan says:

    You’d think that it would be impossible for a person to forget the answer to “Who Am I?”. But, as a believer and Christ-follower, it’s easy to do when you get in the middle of life, whether it’s a storm of life or a pleasure of life that causes us to forget who we are.

    Short but powerful!

    I’ve personally never seen anyone in their own pride find the goodness of God. Only in humility can we come to Him. A good reason to stay humble.

    Good questions.
