Christians have been reminded that their spiritual identity which encompasses other kinds of identity, is very essential.
Speaking on the topic, “Know your Identity” anchored on Judges chapter 6: verse 11 to 16, Reverend Moses Ezeoke of the Church of the Good Shepherd, Ehimiri, Abia State, said there are avalanche of identity, noting that the most important is “spiritual or religious identity”.
He said all other kinds of identity have their bedrock on spiritual identity which talks about one’s beginning and end in life, adding that other identities focus on man’s activities on earth.
Drawing inference from the scripture, he said Gideon, an agriculturist, is a man with other kinds of identities, but lacked the idea that he was a mighty man of valour until he discovered his spiritual identity and confronted his enemies.
The cleric stated that ignorance of one’s spiritual identity, leads to everlasting suffering, stating that discovering this does not depend on one’s family background and status in the society.
He prayed God to assist his Children to discover their spiritual identities in life as it will bring to an end all the sufferings and afflictions the evil one has brought upon their lives
Reverend Ezeoke, however, advised Christians to know who they are, follow God’s instructions and live their lives like those made alive as these are ways to know one’s spiritual identity, revealing that God is the bedrock of their identities.
