Discovering your Identity – Part 5. Inheritance

Our Spiritual Inheritance has two very interesting components. Firstly, the magnitude of what we inherit from God, simply because we are His, is enormous. It truly makes us capable of miraculous things. The second is a little more sad though.

Welcome back to the 6 part series on discovering your true Identity in Christ. We all seem to have questions about our Identity and about how to discover what we are on this earth for. If you accept the idea that God gives every one of us the tools we need for the job He has in mind for us, then by discovering the tools in our lives, we should begin to see His intentions for us. My hope is that through this series, you will more clearly discover your Identity and in the process, find your destiny.

Next we will focus on our spiritual Inheritance. This may seem like an obvious topic that might feel out of place among the list of tools that contribute to our unique design, but in reality it is a game changing truth - without which - we would not be near as capable.

Discovering your Identity – Part 1

I believe Christianity today is suffering under an epidemic of worldwide proportions. It is potentially more devastating to the world than the persecutions of the early Centuries and certainly more widespread. It is quite simply, an identity crisis.

Knowing your Strengths is just the beginning.

I want to introduce you to some friends of mine from South Africa. Their names are Nick & Heather Costaras (Greek). Heather had an idea to help 10 rural black women in impoverished Kwa-Zulu Natal - South Africa, become entrepreneurs, business owners and have a healthy self image. It burned in her like fire. It is an amazing idea called Tapestry of Dreams!!!!
