On today’s episode, we answer some big questions: Who are you? Does your life matter? Your answers have the power to define your life because the way you see your life actually shapes your life. Your identity informs everything you do! And the world, our flesh, and the Devil wants us to misplace our identities! So today, we will look at the various ways that we can potentially misplace our identities. This can be by looking inside of ourselves and our preferences. Or maybe it’s looking to the roles in our current life season. Or maybe it’s our body image or the realities we project on our social media platforms.. It could even be what others have done to us or say about it. But the truth is: those things are not enough. We are not enough. The truth of our identity is in our union with Christ. When we anchor our sense of self in who we are in Christ, every aspect of our lives will be transformed. We are called to be slaves to righteousness and pursue holiness. We are loved by God and called to be saints!
