Identity Issues

"This world's fundamental problem is that we don't understand who we really are - children of God made in his image - and define ourselves by any number of things other than Jesus. Only by knowing our false idolatry apart from Christ in relation to our true identity in him can we rightly deal with and overcome the issues in our lives.....

....You aren't what's been done to you but what Jesus has done for you. You aren't what you do but what Jesus has done. What you do doesn't determine who you are. Rather who you are in Christ determines what you do."

  - Mark Driscoll, Who Do You Think You Are?: Finding Your True Identity in Christ, pages 2-3
