As we are learning together how to be real and authentic in our faith, the biggest setback for so many Christians is our identity crisis. The rest of the world seems to have clued in on the crisis as well. The church’s largest criticism is hypocrisy and inauthenticity that non-believers see within our congregations. How can we begin to change that narrative? It will start by changing how we view our identity.
Last week was all about how to be an apostle of Luke 10, walking in the authority of Jesus. Today we will continue that conversation with examples from the Old and New Testament. We can look to Moses, Paul, and the apostles to show us where our identity should be rooted—in God alone. When our identity is rooted in our Creator, we cannot help but reflect his goodness and character. The result is an authenticity that the rest of the world longs for. We can share the hope and salvation of Jesus by our very acts of faith. The key to a deep community of believers and a changed society around us starts with reclaiming our identity.
Let’s learn how we can be linked together by the Holy Spirit, and rooted in our identity in God.
