Who Am I?
What a glorious Lord! He who daily bears our burdens also gives us our salvation.
—Psalm 68:19 (TLB)
著名作家爱德华·达尔伯格（Edward Dahlberg）发现“19岁的时候我感觉自己很陌生；40岁的时候我问自己‘我是谁？’；50岁的时候，我得出一个结论：我永远不知道自己是谁。”多伦多社会学家通过June Callwood发表文章表示，数百万的人探测不到内心的空虚，加拿大的大学生当中有92%的人不知道他们是谁。圣经教导我们人类有不死的灵魂，起初神创造人的时候，将生气吹在他的鼻孔里，他就成了有灵的活人”（创2:7）。灵魂是一个人的本质、核心 、是永恒的并且构成真正的人。除非接受主耶稣作为个人的救主，否则人总会感到焦躁不安。
Edward Dahlberg, the writer, observed, “At 19, I was a stranger to myself. At 40, I asked, ‘Who am I?’ At 50, I concluded I would never know.” This unexplored personal wilderness is the home of millions of people. Ninety-two percent of all Canadian university students, according to June Callwood, the Toronto sociologist, don’t really know who they are. The Bible says that man is an immortal soul. When God made man in the first place, He created him and “breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul” (Genesis 2:7). One’s soul is the essence, the core, the eternal and real person. And he will be restless until he opens his life to Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
Prayer for the day
Almighty God, knowing I am Your child is all the assurance I need.
