What is identity, and why is it so important?
Your identity is what defines you.
Our identity does not just represent us, but it is the “substance” of who we are.
We will live out who we believe we are.
If you want to know where you find your identity, look no further than the things that give you purpose and where you find “fulfillment.” That’s what you believe is your identity. Note: this can be a false identity, but this is the identity you have taken as your own and are living as.
When asked about yourself, what is your regular explanation? How do you introduce yourself? What is the summary of your life? How do you spend your time — the majority of it? The answers to each of these questions will tell you a lot about the identity you are living as.
Examine that identity next to the identity that God gives to you. Is your identity truthful?
