Darkness of ignorance, Where are you getting your identity?
I read this, this morning. Francois Du Toit had posted it on Facebook. Where are you getting your identity? Is it an accurate identity or a skewed one? If it is not founded on God’s definition of you it probably is skewed.
People are not born Christians, yet every person ever born comes from God! God says in Jer 1:5 “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb!”
We are God’s idea: we began in God! We are born into a world where we are bombarded with many diverse cultural and traditional mindsets, most of which directly stems from the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil system, which is the fallen mindset system which says you are not…you have to strive to become! People who do gross things do it from believing a lie about themselves and not knowing the truth of their incredible design as image bearers of God! James says in Js 3:9, We can say beautiful things about God the Father but with the same mouth curse a man made in his mirror likeness. The point is not what the man did to deserve the curse! A doctor doesn’t slap his patient and command him to stop coughing! You may have the flu but you never become the flu!
True worship is to touch someone’s life with the same devotion and care you would touch Jesus himself; even if the other person seems a most unlikely candidate.
Multitudes of people are living in the darkness of ignorance, not knowing the truth of the integrity of their design and their redeemed value and innocence! The adventure of the Christian life is to declare what we have discovered to be true about every single person! Jesus says that when we discover that the son of man is indeed the son of God then the gates of hades (not to see) will crumble and the prisoners of darkness will be free to discover themselves in him!
Truth does not invite dispute, doctrine does!Truth awakens resonance!
Amen. Good stuff. I like what you said, “Truth does not invite dispute, doctrine does! Truth awakens resonance!” How true! 🙂
For the last few days the following words have been going round and round my head….”identity crisis”. I have found myself saying to those around me…”you’ve forgotten who you are (in Christ)”. So I love this post by François.
Although, I will say, he is on the cusp of being too intellectual at times for me. I have to read real slow and carefully to take it all in! :)))
God bless…Stooopid (only joking…I know I’m not!!)
Yeah, I understand the wording ca sometimes be too much to fully comprehend all at once, check him out on YouTube. Listening is eye opening much more simplistic
