What is your identity?  Who are you?  A strong sense of identity can take you through the toughest tests.  It did for Jesus. Just after his baptism, where his lineage was stamped with these words, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased,” Jesus endured tests in the wilderness. Satan attacked his identity three times with the phrase, “If you are the Son of God…”  Jesus knew who he was and he changed the world so that you can know who you are and have your world changed by your faith in him.

Jesus’ identity was based on his relationship with God.  “You are my beloved Son…”  Ours can be, too. God loves you like a proud parent loves their children. To know God is to know you are home.
