So, where does your identity come from? Does it come from the car you drive? Or where you live, or what college you went to? Or maybe it is your occupation, or even your name? Maybe your identity is defined by that new iPhone, ooh now that is a status symbol. Or it could even be the brand name on your clothing or shoes. Whatever it is, it is all subject to change. At a moments notice. In the twinkling of an eye. You could lose your job or your shoes or even your iPhone. Then what? Then you would just be an average person. Nothing special. Our identities or worth cannot be defined by anything we can drum up or buy or anything we ourselves have done. If it is it can fall. It can go bankrupt. It can become worthless in our own eyes. Have you ever seen someone so devastated because they have lost everything that they are suicidal?
Our identity must be in something rock solid and eternal. Something that will withstand time. Only one thing will work … His name is Jesus.
