Truth Tuesday – Live Confidently In Your True Identity

by Kathy

 identity in christ 2

 

We live in a culture that tells us that our worth is found in the way we look, how much we have, what we do, and how popular we are.  The problem with this is that it leads us down paths of insecurity, fear, unfulfillment, disappointment and never quite measuring up.  We need to stop looking at the false image the world portrays, and look at the image of what actually defines us in God’s eyes.

If you have trusted Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord, you have an identity that is found in what your Heavenly Father says about you.  Knowing who we are in Christ leads us away from a world of comparing ourselves to others and counting the ways we are insignificant, to living the way God created us to live – to glorify Him!

 “It is in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for.”  (Ephesians 1:11 The Message)
