Find your identity in Christ.
Am I right? As part of the book I’m working on, I maintain that this is a good answer to the wrong question. And that in fact, this thing about finding your identity in Christ comes off like a pious brush off. Like if we really DID find our identities in Christ, we wouldn’t have “issues.”
I don’t think this is true, but am looking for feedback. As a born-again, trying (though more than often failing!)-to-live-it-out Christian, that my identity is Christ IS the most important aspect of who I am. However, I still want to bust out of the mom molds (and other molds) I’m set into. And I think that’s okay. Part of my identity in Christ, I think, is living how he made me and using my gifts, abilities, personality, etc., in service to him, not in being fake or simply trying to live up to some cultural expectation.
But I worry that I’m missing something here. Am I? What’s your take on finding your identity in Christ?
