I am so excited to share today’s guest post with you! Christian Rivera is a young adult who I got to know very well while serving at The Lighthouse Church. He was one of the famous “Super Seven” Lighthouse Interns of 2014 and since then has helped out in countless ways. He is a gift to the Church and it has been a joy to witness all the Lord has done in and through him over the past few years. Chris was a part of the WDYTYA young adults small group at Lighthouse earlier this year. When I approached him about sharing a guest post, he immediately chose WARRIOR and I’m so glad he did!

Christian loves the Word of God, is a great teacher, an anointed worship leader, and appreciates the perfect font (we share a special bond there!). He is in his last year at City College in New York City, where he is pursuing a degree in mathematics and education. I am grateful for his love and passion for the Lord and his encouragement to those he comes into contact with. I think you'll experience some of that here today. Check out Christian's post, follow him on Twitter and give him a shout of encouragement!

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power… and pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” (Ephesians 6:10,18) 

Here we are at the final week of our WDYTYA series: I AM A WARRIOR. 

Before we go there, let's recap. Over the last seven weeks, we’ve come to know and realize that our identity is in Christ. In Him, we have all that we need - every spiritual blessing. We know that He chose us in Him to be holy and blameless because of His great love for us. In Him we are redeemed - from our sins and for a purpose. 

Everything we learned was not to keep to ourselves or ponder it alone. We are called to the Body of Christ. With that in mind, let's consider our warrior identity.

“As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.” (Ephesians 4:1) 

Since our WDYTYA series began, we have taken the time to look at who we are in Christ and dig in a little deeper to what the Bible says about our identity. Our eyes have been opened to all we have inherited in Christ: every spiritual blessing. We are Blessed. Chosen. Redeemed. Loved. Holy. The revelation has been powerful to realize not just who Christ is, but who we are and all that we have in Christ

It brings me great joy to share Daniela Hidalgo's guest post with you today! Daniela and I got to know each other while serving together at The Lighthouse Church over the last several years. She was one of my amazing interns during the summer of 2014 and was also a part of my WDYTYA young adults small group this past spring. The Lord really spoke to Daniela's heart when the topic HOLY came up. She shared a testimony about it at our ALIVE: Night of Prayer + Worship back in April. I'm so glad that she is sharing here as well today. 

Daniela is a psychology major at St. Joseph's College in Brooklyn, New York. She loves the Word of God, is an anointed worship leader, and appreciates good coffee and great chats. (Can you tell why I love her so much?!) Daniela is an amazing young woman of God and a sister to me. I love her dearly and I know the Lord has great plans for her in the Kingdom. Please check out Daniela's guest post below and share some comment love and encouragement with her!
