Now think about this question: in what do you place your identity?
Do you place your identity in the world…in objects, in stuff…? Do you feel like you will not be accepted if you do not have the latest and greatest the world has to offer?
I, for one, will work to place my identity in something-rather someone- not of this world.
My identity is in Christ.
2 Corinthians 5:17-21
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come:The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
