Identity: Who we are in light of who He is.

7 07 2016

I have spent most of my life struggling with identity.  I’ve struggled with who others saw me as, I’ve struggled with who I see myself as and I’ve struggled with who I thought I had to be for God.

I struggled to be good enough.  Smart enough.  Pretty enough.  Sane enough.  And on and on and on.  I struggled with my family being my identity, I’ve struggled with my job being my identity, I’ve struggled with my faults and failures as well as my strengths and success being my identity.

But in recent moments God has shown me my true identity.  My identity can only be known when I know Him for we are in light of who He is.

In light of current culture events, in light of the world saying that we get to choose or identify our identity, we need to understand where true identity comes from.  At my youth group we started talking on this very topic a few weeks ago.  Before anything else, we have to firmly grasp what our identity is, then and only then can we interact with the World.

Join me over the next few posts as I delve into Identity: Who we are in light of who He is.
