A GOOD PLACE TO START
Want to know something about yourself? - then find out about...
The Word of your Life - your Human Identity
Our walk through life, the directions we take and the choices we make are all recorded. It all adds up to our own personal book of life which others are able to read and assess.
Starting off in a place called lifeFrom the moment we are born we start a process of communication between ourselves and those around us. Inherent in all of us is a need for attention and to impress others. How well we do it determines our rewards in life. For this reason it is vital that we develop the image we would like to project to the world.
Self-examination is a good starting point, but this would serve very little purpose if we do not even know what defines our identity. Knowing who and what you really are will place you in a position to re-invent yourself before launching yourself to the world and quickly establish a benchmark brand for your refurbished identity. So, who are you really?
The growing curveFrom the point of birth you started becoming aware of an environment filled with sights and sounds. Soon all five of your physical senses were active in absorbing all there was to offer from one phase of your growth to the next. After years of nurturing, love and affection, and having completed your education, you were ready to face the world that would reward you for your services. The question is, what did you have to offer and what could the sea of humanity expect from you?
Everything you have ever absorbed through your five senses from birth to the present has worked together to form your personality and character. Your thoughts are limited to your experiences and your spoken words will be based on your thoughts. You are what you think and say.
You might have a leaning towards certain traits, tendencies and habits, mainly because of the constant exposure to your parents and peers who have displayed these oddities. You are “filled” with the memories of your life experiences, with all the actions, decisions and choices ever made and words ever spoken. Your intellect has developed as a consequence of these experiences.
You are your wordYou are, therefore, the sum total of what you have seen, heard, smelled, tasted and touched. All of this, put together, represents your word. As a “sense-knowledge” creature, the only thing you can offer the world is your word. People judge you by your word, for you and your word are one. Your personality and character consist of your unspoken word (thoughts produced by your intellect) and your spoken word. As a living, walking, human creature, you are a “holder” of a word with your name on it. From the world’s point of view, you are nothing more than that.
If anyone should ask of you, “Who are you?” you might as well answer, “I am my word, and the name of my word is John Smith”. Or if someone named Mary paid a visit to your home today, then you could say that the word of Mary was with you today. Ever thought of it that way?
Make it a good bookThis, then, is your identity – your word. But it does not stop there. This word of yours is also your book of life. You’ve been writing your very own book since birth. You add pages to it every day and you will do so until your life ends. That's when your book of life will be in Divine Hands, ready to be opened at the right time.
Now that you know exactly who you are, are you going to make your book a boring one? Or are you going to make it a bestseller? Get off the couch. It’s filling up pages in your book. There are autograph hunters out there and they’re looking for a good book. Let it be yours.

The most astonishing statement ever madeA statement made by Jesus turned the world upside down for many, but for most the world has not moved.
THE WORLD HAS BEEN OVERCOME
What did He mean by that? It certainly begs an analysis – for it has far-reaching consequences.
THE CAMP OF THE ENEMY
Firstly, what was there about the world to overcome? His statement seems to label the world as a place that needed serious attention, as if the world was an enemy camp - in which case, anyone living in this world was under serious threat of being detected and swallowed up by the enemy. We know that Jesus was sent by God. He had a mission. And by stating that He had overcome the world for us must surely mean that He had accomplished His mission. Perhaps we should look at what God thinks of the world in order to grasp the meaning of this statement.
1 John 2:15,16 reads, “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the vain glory of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”
We see here that the lust of the flesh is of the world. Let’s look at the definition of this. "Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are these: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, licentiousness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contention, jealousy, wrath, selfish ambition, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelry, and the like, of which I tell you beforehand, just as I have also told you in times past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the Kingdom of God." (Gal. 5:19-21)
And if the world is an enemy camp, then these “works” must be the works of the enemy and it must have something to do with Jesus’ mission. “He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.” (1 John 3:8)
That’s it! The works of the devil is sin – and Jesus came to destroy his works, which means he has overcome the world and what it represents.
So, if we are living in the enemy camp – which is the world - and we cavort with the enemy, then we are in an adulterous relationship and no longer in relationship with our Heavenly Father. It actually means that we are living in sin. "Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God." (James 4:4.)
BE OF GOOD CHEER
Well, to put it bluntly, those that are indulging in the things of the world (in an adulterous relationship with the enemy) are going to perish and God does not want them to spend eternity in hell. There’s a reason for it – and that reason is His love for the man he created. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” ( John 3:16)
As for leaving us in the enemy camp, Jesus passed on a mission to us – and that is to convert followers of the prince of this world (the devil) so that they may also inherit the Kingdom of God. We are in this world but no longer of this world – and that is what gives us the peace mentioned by Jesus. The world is waiting for the Good News of Jesus Christ who has overcome the world. “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” (Mt 28:19,20)
WE ARE ONE
The prayer of Jesus puts it in a nutshell.
John 17:13-23. “And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.”
Are you still in an adulterous affair with the world?
