We have 3 images of identity.Mar 03, 2023
Two of them are false and a complete waste of time.
#1 - Projected Image - How you want others to see you
#2 - Perceived Image - How others actually see you
#3 - Actual Image - How God sees you
Deep inside everyone is a need and drive for significance.
- A craving to be known
- To have influence
- To be important
But when your identity is shaped around your projected or perceived image, you unknowingly create a false identity that will fold like a house of cards — when adversity strikes.
When you have someone that doesn’t know who they are, everything they do will be an effort to try to make themselves into something to create their own identity.
They will devote every effort to become a person of significance, instead of understanding that they are already significant.
True identity comes from our creator, God.
When you become a Christ-follower, He gives you a new Identity that doesn't change with your circumstances.
>> Your identity is not found in what you do.
>> Your identity is found in who God says you are.
There is nothing you can do to change your identity, because your identity is already established (as a believer).
It’s not about trying to manage who you were. It’s about learning to live out who you have become.
Discover you. Be you.
