Where Identity Begins

"The absolute worst place to begin constructing an identity is you, which is precisely where most counseling begins. The absolute best place to begin constructing an identity is Jesus Christ, which is precisely where Scripture begins. Knowing Jesus and being saved by him in faith is the key to your identity and to the defeat of your idolatry. It's not about you. It's all about Jesus."

     -Mark Driscoll,  Who Do You Think You Are?: Finding Your True Identity in Christ, page 17
