What we do in life, the quality of our lives, and the quality of our relationships are all the overflow of who we are. Getting ‘who we are’ wrongly will impact the way we relate to others, and most importantly, the way we relate to our creator.
In the previous post, we looked at the matrix of a believer’s relationships and the consequence of sins to those relationships. In this post, we will look at the first, and I would argue the most important, of those relationships.
Getting our identity right is the crucial step for the spiritual maturity of every believer. In fact, I would even say that it is the only step. If we get this right, the rest will simply the natural outworking of this. The Bible bears witness to how important this is that when God sent Jesus to earth, He did so to give us a totally new identity. He did not just ‘change’ us or ‘fix’ us. He renewed and restored us completely. We are given a totally new identity and new life.
