The story is told that the queen of England was trying to get her daughter to sit still. She started the way most parents start. "Young lady, be still." That worked for a while, but the girl started wiggling again. Then it was, "I said, be still!" But nothing worked to keep the girl quiet until the queen said, "Young lady, be still. Don't you know who you are?" In other words, "You're a princess. Act like it." The girl got the message this time, because the queen tied her daughter's behavior to her identity. We can tell each other all day to stop doing this or that. But if we don't see the connection between our identity in Christ and our actions, I'm going to start wiggling after a while, and so will you. If you have a heart that desperately desires to know and serve God, the place to begin is by understanding and believing the biblical truth of your identity in Christ. This is a watershed issue, one that determines whether you will live free in Christ or live as a slave of the world, the flesh, and the devil.
