We hear of identity crisis, identity politics, identity this and identity that. My question is to whom do we identify? Do we identify with ourselves, which at its core is a form narcissism and self glorification. Do we identify with a group, and to what platform does that group elevate and promote?
A Mirror is a place of reflecting an image or that which we desire or purpose to identify with.
As Christ followers, we are to be “lost or dead” hidden in him! Our Identity is to be IN HIM!
27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.
1 Cor. 6:
19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.
1 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. 3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
6 For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin—
So therefore, let us exalt HIM! May HE Alone be Honored, Glorified, and lifted up in all that we say and do. The image we Reflect or Mirror must be HIM.
May our Identity be a living testimony to HIM.
