Identity

Day 1 of 4 • This day’s reading

Devotional

Identity is defined as who you are. It’s what makes you who you are; it's what makes you unique. Still, this can be hard to understand because many of us are still learning who we are each day.



People may call us things like unpopular, or nerd. They may also call us nice things like pretty, or say we’re good at sports. But God says these things are not who we are. Other people do not choose our identity. God chooses our identity. He tells us who we are.



You were made in the image of God. This is who you are to your very core. No matter what you like about yourself or don’t like about yourself, your identity is in God.



He says that we are His creation; He made us how and who we are for a reason. And no matter what others say, you matter to God. He created us to have a relationship with Him.



In this episode, we learn that Subject 1 does not fit in at school. He doesn’t like himself because others believe he’s an outcast. Watch what happens as Subject 1 learns who God says he is in this episode of Erased.



Question: How does it make you feel to know that you were created in God’s image?
