Identity in Christ
We either find our identity in Christ or something else. WHERE WE FIND OUR IDENTITY WILL DICTATE WHO WE WORSHIP AND WHERE WE FIND OUR HOPE FOR SALVATION.
Such as fatherfood being a leader, etc. When we hear criticism we defend our actions. When others in our family stumble we wonder how it will affect our reputation.
Provider- We work hard to provide for our family but don't even have time for our family.
Leader- Might hang on the approval of those we are leading.
Worker- Success is everything. When work is going well so is everything else and vice versa.
It's a focus on what we do as opposed to what we are. We view all criticism as critisms against us. We end up measuring ourselves by these roles rather than christ
2) Attributes- Our character traits
We define ourselves by supposed attributes. We live our lives on these attribute ladders. We turn neutral aspects of humanity into positive or negative aspects of humanity. Christ freed us from the "ladder". No ladders have any value; Christ knocks them all down!!!
Sins we committed that constantly haunt us. We define outselves by what has happened to us.
4) IDENTITY IN CHRIST
When we find our identity in Christ, Christ is the only thing that offers us hope. Christ is now our identity. I NO LONGER LIVE BUT CHRIST LIVES IN ME!!! WE ARE COMPLETELY NEW CREATIONS. the only thing we live for now is Christ. Our past has been replaced by Christ's life
