I saw an advert on the Net for Genes Reunited which, directed at me said, "Neil, Find Out Who You Are."
No doubt it's all about finding out my family tree. But it got me to thinking: Who am I?
Am I Scottish? Am I Canadian? Am I Australian? I have been, and still am, each of these (it just depends on who I'm talking to at the time!)
Am I a Plumber? Am I a Presbyterian Minister? Am I an Army Chaplain? I am mostly an Army Chaplain at the moment, but cannot discount the others.
But do we measure who we are by our nationality or what we do or both?
I'm also a husband, a father, and a grandfather, as well as a brother.
I'm a pet-owner. I'm a singer. I'm a song-writer. I'm a writer. I am sure I am many other things too! I think I've reinvented myself more times than the pop singer Madonna!
The bottom line is that I already know who I am.
I am a citizen of Heaven. I am an adopted son of God. I am an (albeit at the moment imperfect) image of God. Yes, being Triune, God is therefore one yet many, unity in diversty. So am I!
I can see that I reflect God somewhat in many things. That's good enough for me!
