Everyone has asked the question “Who Am I ?” at some point! Our world is happy to tell you who you are and assign you an identity—conservative, white, northerner, white-collar, progresive, black, southerner, and so many more. But as followers of Jesus, we have been given another identity, one that can change our lives if we truly believe and accept what God says is true about us. Today we are wondering if you have ever questioned if God likes you! Somehow it seems easier to believe that He loves us, but that He likes us can be more difficult to accept! We believe that God calls us a friend, and trusting that can change everything!
Read John 15:12-17.
**As a reminder, if you dont know what to pray, you can always pray scripture! You can pray the Lord’s prayer or any of the many prayers in the Psalms! In fact, this prayer from a man seeking healing for his daughter from Jesus is so simple, but also so powerful and relatable. Perhaps these prayers are a good place to start!
Also, this song we sang on Sunday just might be a place of honest worship for you this week! Remember, friendship with Jesus is a gift not to be earned, but rather accepted and cultivated. He loves you and He likes you!
