Reconnect One: IdentityAugust 4, 2017
Reconnect One, with Carmen LaBerge:
Our world is identity-obsessed.
Behind the obsession with being known by our sexual proclivity, our gender, our race or some other distinctive we perceive as paramount, lies a lie. The lie is this: the self is the exalted one to whom everyone must bow.
That lie could not be more diametrically opposed to the Christian worldview.
For the Christian, identity begins and ends not with the self but with Another.
In Christ, there is a new creation, everything old has passed away; see everything has become new. Everything. That’s comprehensive. The Christian bears not the self but the very identity of Christ into the world.
What matters is the Savior, not the self.
