Welcome to this series of devotional posts based on ‘Roots & Wings’ an integrative Bible study for discipleship, written by Pastor Edmund Chan, our guest speaker at RISE, QB Convention 2015. Our thoughts will be based around five areas: our human weakness, the resulting problem, the radical re-orientation, the critical need, and the empowered life of Roots & Wings.
TOPIC: Going Beyond the Self (Biblical Identity)
The Critical Need: Live life with a new identity (2 Peter 1:3-10)
Belonging to God’s family does not just come with privileges but also with responsibilities. As members of God’s household we are to demonstrate God’s qualities, advance his agenda and submit to Him. We hear often these days about the shortcomings of the members of different royal families. There is an expectation that members of royal families will maintain certain standards. Well how about us who are the members of God’s royal household? Remember – you carry God’s badge and we are his representatives.
