Understanding your identity crisis

IDOLS - Items. Duties. Others. Longings. Suffereings.

  1. You live in fear that your identity idolatry will fail you or be taken from you.
  2. Your identity idolatry crumbles under the weight of being in God's place in your life.
  3. As your identity idolatry begins to crumble you become panicked.
  4. When your identity idolatry fails, you look for someone to blame (self, others, God).
At this point you can do one of the following:

  1. Turn to Jesus Christ for a new eternal identity 
  2. Or, sadly pick a new identity idolatry
Only in Christ is there a new you (or me)!!

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 
II Corinthians 5:17
