It started in the garden when Adam and Eve lost their identity. When the enemy tempted them to doubt God’s Word, His Truth, and His Love for them. They believed the lies of the enemy. They fell. They covered their shame with fig leaves. But God provided a sacrifice an innocent one to cover their shame blood for blood. We will never be ok with our own propping up of our identity. We are crooked in every imperfect way. Perfection is not man made. Perfection is God.
The Bible tells us that our identity in Christ is part of accepting His gift of eternal life through faith. Jesus gave His life on earth and rose from the grave to conquer death and sanctify those who believe in Him. When we become followers and believers in Jesus, we lose our identity of this world and embrace our identity in Christ.
