“My identity is not found in what I do, but who I am in Christ”
My identity is who I am in him, He is the I am in me! His definition of me trumps who I say i am every time. He created me before the world was formed, he forgave and poured out grace for all mankind at the same time (time is a man concept, God doesn’t deal in a time continuum) Romans 6:10-11. Says he died once for all mankind. So his only image of me is forgiven an whole. Gen 1:26 says wevwere created in his likeness his image, we weren’t goats or guinee pigs! We were created in his image, he is my identity. 2 Cor 3:18 is the whole mirror deal. When we look in the mirror he is the reflection in the mirror. A mirror does not show the past or future but what is there at that exact moment. He is the I am in me! As he is so am I!
Sanctifa… When? sorta blogged on this, this morning. .
Amen! Our identity shouldn’t be based on what we do or what we have but on the fact that we are children of the Most High God. His Holy Spirit dwells within us to lead, guide, teach and convict us each day. It is because of His amazing grace that we are here and able to serve Him. Great post! Blessings!
