“There is a drastic difference between an identity in the material world and an identity in Christ. Putting your worth and identity in the material world will only leave you feeling empty and worthless. Seeking money, fame, items, power, and acceptance from others will never leave you fulfilled.
The world identifies you by your behavior, your actions, your status, the way you look. When we let our identity be determined by the world, we start to believe those things about ourselves. We conform to the labels we are given. We begin to see ourselves as worthless and never good enough.
Having your identity and value in Christ is completely different. You have a confidence and security that doesn’t compare. We may not always feel worthy and we may not always feel new, but Jesus tells us that, in Him, we are a new creation!
In Christ you are a new creation, you are set free, you are accepted and forgiven, you are a conqueror, you are chosen for a greater purpose, you are a child of God. To God, you are special for being you. Don’t let people tell you who you are, let God tell you who you are.”
