X-RAY – Your Real Identity Comes From The Inside Out

“He chose to give birth to us by giving us his true word. And we, out of all creation, became his prized possession.”
James 1:18

Over the next few weeks we are going to be thinking about our identity and where our worth comes from.

If we were to be scanned through a machine that only saw our worth, what would the machine show? Would is show our make up and fancy jewellery? Would it show our designer clothes and latest gadgets? Or would it show our hearts?

When it comes to thinking about our identity it’s worth remembering our heart, our passion, our love. It’s worth remembering where our identity comes from, not the things on the outside but the things within. It’s also worth remembering that it’s no mistake we are made and built the way we are. In James 1 v 18 it says:

“He chose to give birth to us by giving us his true word. And we, out of all creation, became his prized possession.”

That’s right, God chose us! He saw us before we were in our parents minds and He still wanted us here (Jeremiah 5 v 1). He conquered death for us to be here (John 3 v 16) and He gave you a plan and a purpose for your life (Jeremiah 29 v 11).

Our identity, if we choose it to be, is in Him, the one who saw all our imperfections and still called us perfect.

This week, start to consider your identity, what you would look like if you were scanned through a machine, what worth would be found in you and your identity?
