It’s easy to lose your identity in these crazy times. You get labeled and you take on titles and names for yourself.
Black, white, gay, straight, Republican, Democrat, conservative, liberal, left-handed, right-handed . . .
The identity that matters most — the only identity that truly matters in the end — is that of being a child of God and being in Christ.
That trumps all others. Your allegiance belongs above all else to Jesus.
Allowing anything else to supersede or be equal with that is pure and total idolatry. Your core value and worth come from the name Jesus gives you and who He says you are. Not from anything or anyone else. Period.
Let the God who knows your sin call you by your name.
