Discover Your Spiritual Identity

An article about Mike Shreve’s new release titled
“WHO AM I? Dynamic Declarations of Who You Are in Christ”

The Bible covers five primary subjects:

1.       Who God is
2.       Who we are
3.       What He will do for us
4.       What we are called to do for Him
5.       Our destiny together

There are definitely other themes from Genesis to Revelation, but these are the five big ones. Many books have been written about #1 (Who God is), especially books exploring the names and titles that belong to the Creator. Each one pulls back the veil on His character and reveals some manner in which He will move for those who abide in a covenant relationship with Him. I have about five books in my library on this single subject and I refer to them often.

Back around 1985, God spoke to my heart that it would be just as important for believers to know their names and titles as revealed in God’s Word. I sensed that in a similar way, it would pull back the veil on our spiritual identity: who we are and what we are called to do as sons and daughters of God. To my great surprise, no books were available on this subject—so I just scoured the Word of God for many years, and was awed to find over 1,000 names and titles God has used to describe His people. I realized I had found a mother lode, a primary vein of gold in the Bible. Each individual title belonging to believers appeared like another gleaming nugget, peeking through the soil, reflecting the light of who we are in Christ.
