Who are you?

Dr. Shadrach Meshach Lockridge (S.M. Lockridge), was the pastor of Calvary Baptist Church in San Diego, CA from 1953 to 1993, but he preached the Word of God all over the United States. Many know of, or have heard, the sermon he preached in Detroit in 1976, entitled “That’s My King, Do You Know Him?” If you haven’t, you will love it, so check it out right now on Youtube. Go ahead, I’ll be here when you get back.

Don’t you love it?! Pastor Lockridge starts describing Jesus with “entirely sincere, eternally steadfast, immortally graceful, and imperially powerful” and towards the end he says about Jesus, “heaven can’t contain Him, no man can explain Him”….”you can’t outlive Him, you can’t live without Him”….”death couldn’t handle Him,” and my favorite, “the grave couldn’t hold Him!” Pastor Lockridge delivers it like no other could I think, and wouldn’t you have loved to be there when he did it in person? But, even watching it on Youtube always moves me.

Jesus, we know, loves our praise and glory, and it’s something we should be doing with our every breath. But, just as important to Jesus, is that we know who we are. It’s important to Him because it’s what the Father desires. We know this because He has told us in His Word:

John 1:12 tells us that we are His children

John 15:15 tells us that we are His friends

Romans 5:1 tells us that we are justified

I Corinthians 6:17 tells us that we are united with Him

I Corinthians 6:19-20  tells us that we belong to Him

I Corinthians 12:27 tells us that we are members of the body

Ephesians 1:3-5 tells us that we are chosen

Colossians 1:13-14  tells us that we are forgiven

Colossians 2:9-10  tells us we are complete

Hebrews 4:16  tells us we are ones that have direct access

Romans 8:1-2 tells us that we are free and secure

Romans 8:28  tells us that we are assured

II Corinthians 1:21-22 tells us that we are established, anointed and sealed

Phillipians 3:20  tells us that we are citizens of heaven

That’s who I am! I wonder today…do you know who you are?
