Our True Identity

Our True Identity

Many individuals share the common thread of growing up in a dysfunctional home. Because their childhood did not include love, nurturing, or stability; they never developed a strong sense of their true identity. Characteristics include the lack of coping skills: Minimal disturbances and life events reveal hidden doubts and insecurities. Often, there is an unnatural spirit of jealously secretly harbored against persons who possess confident demeanors. The inability to bond with others is evidenced by numerous superficial and short-term relationships. Understanding who we are remains the foundation to our very existence.

However, our circumstances are far from becoming hopeless. There is an effective remedy for the fragmented state of merely existing. The Word of God gives a beautiful, and detailed story of God’s decision to make man in His image. Abounding love motivated our Heavenly Father to breathe life into Adam, and create a woman-Eve for completion and companionship. 1 Peter 2 tells us that we are a chosen people…royal and holy, God’s very own possession.

Through Christ we have the opportunity to become “a new creation” with a strong sense of who we belong to; and, we are able to develop our true identity. The former situation that failed to provide us with love is considered “as old and passes away.” It is a wonderful blessing to finally know who we are-God’s own-we are now complete.
