Who am I?

Our Deceleration of Independence states: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. The founders of our country firmly believed that we were all created equal. They believed that our Creator meant for everyone to be able to pursue a happy and fulfilling life. Two problems have arisen over the years though. First is that we are all equal, but we are not all the same. Second is that our difference have led to some confusion over the best way to seek that fulfilling life. 

I purpose that the answer to both of those issue lies within the statement made by our founding fathers. We were created by a Creator and given the ability to pursue those things. Therefore, who better to consult about the best way to do so than Him?

The next few weeks we will be examining from scripture why we must do exactly that. We cannot know who we are created to be outside of our Creator. He created you to be you. You cannot learn from anyone else how to be you. To know who you are, you must seek your Creator. The one who designed you, gifted you, and breathed life into you. 

Our biggest problem is that we do not seek our Creator and instead wonder blindly through life trying to figure things out for ourselves. We allow sin and brokenness to misinterpret the different aspects of who we are and how God created us to be unique. This has resulted in a broken world becoming more and more broken.

Through God's grace, the church has an opportunity to seek God and display to the world how our Creator intended us to live.
