We cringe when we hear about the heir who inherited a fortune and squandered it all, or the person who was entrusted to carry on a famous legacy, only to soil the family name in disgrace. Sometimes people can literally be surrounded by things that others only dream of, yet fail to do anything worthwhile with them. Today we see a young man who grew up in the presence of God’s covenant promises, but he chose to mock it and walk away from it all.
Imagine waking up tomorrow and not remembering who you are, and then having to live that way for the next 20 or 30 years. What an awful existence that would be! But the truth is, many Christians live with a similar condition. They’ve never been told who they are in Christ, and so they live their entire Christian life without ever knowing their true identity as a child of God; unsure of why they even exist at all. In this series, we will expose the lies Satan uses to keep us trapped in that prison, and we will discover the truth of what the Bible says about who we really are in Christ.
