“Keep your identity in Christ, so when trials occur, you know who to lean on.”~TB
Leading a life Christ-filled life is not without its challenges, obstacles, and trials. If you’re wrapped up in your human-made identity, pride will be your downfall. Unchecked pride can manifest itself in many different ways, depending on the person and the situation. Your pride may lead you to take on too many things, leaving you feeling overworked, underappreciated, etc. Pride can also lead you into judgment and temptation. Pride can also cause you to covet that which is not yours, the list goes on and on. When your identity is built on man-made designs, you will feel empty, broken, and confused because your fragile image will eventually break.
L’eggo Your Ego
Let go of your pride and ego to recognize your true identity, a Child of God. When you focus on all He has done, you begin to realize that you will never measure up to the perfection that is Christ. Fortunately, He isn’t asking for perfection, but rather, obedience. When you understand this fundamental truth, all other fake identities fall to the wayside because you know that being called His is infinitely worth more than any worldly title man can create. Lean into God’s grace, wisdom, and mercy instead of your own. In your true identity, the opinions of man are loud, obnoxious noise compared to His Perfect Peace. Let your identity in Christ shine brightly to bear witness of His unfailing love.
Do you know your identity in Christ or do you identify as stupid?
