Identity Crisis – 8.30.2020

We live in a society in which it is all about who we are. Our value seems to be based on where we come from, what we do, how much we have, and what we “bring to the table.” Go to a bookstore and the largest section will be the Self Help section. It seems that all of us have a problem with our image, with our self worth, and value to society. Maybe we are looking for our worth, in all the wrong places. Instead of asking what the world thinks of us, we need to ask what God thinks of us. Instead of see our worth through the eyes of society, we need to discover our worth through the eyes of our Savior, who hung on the cross. The world is fickle, it’s standards are every changing, and have no absolute standard, and if we seek to find our worth and value in the eyes of the world, we will always find ourselves lacking. But, God is the same, yesterday, today and tomorrow. His standards never change, and our value in His eyes never wavers. He created us, in His image, unlike anything else in Creation. And He sent His One and Only Son to die on the cross, to save us, redeem us, and make us part of His family. Then He sent His Holy Spirit to dwell within us, so that we might know His will for our lives, be secure in our salvation, and know our worth. To quote Johnny Lee, we are looking for love in all the wrong places, and all the wrong faces. Let’s set our eyes on, and find our value in Jesus. The Author and Perfecter of our faith!
