John 1:19 And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who are you?

It is interesting that when John the Baptist was asked ‘if He was the Christ or Elijah, he responded ‘I am not’. That answer for some may have been satisfactory, but not for the priests and levites sent to him from Jerusalem.

These men were sent to solicit the answer to the question “who are you?” While his answer was an indirect response to their question and would suffice in some quarters,

Who you are is not the same as who you are not.”

Who you are not suggests a clear understanding of the ministry of another individual or office. It is outward looking. However, who you are is inward looking and casts the microscope on you- to flesh out and map out what you stand for and what your purpose for existence is. It affords you the platform to identify the question you are on earth to answer, an it doesn’t have to be a complicated one.

At the start of the year, attempt to write an answer to the question ‘who am I?’ And just so you are aware, knowing ‘who you are not’ can assist you with getting an answer.
