John 1:12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—

There are some whose identity is built around the mistakes of their past. They were promiscuous in their past and now they see themselves as a whore. Some committed criminal acts and now society calls them and they see themselves as a “thug.”

There are some whose identity is built around their present. There are some who are and always have been an athlete. There are some who have elite status in society. If sports and status are taken away from those people, they’re lost.

Finally, there are some whose identity is based on what they will be. They’re attempting to gain wealth and status. Once they acquire the wealth and status, then they’ll see themselves as successful, but for now, they see themselves as nothing.

Our past, our present, and our future doesn’t define who we are. Our identity is found in Christ. If we’ve made Jesus Lord over our lives, we are everything God said we are regardless of our past, present, or future. We are righteous (Rom 3:22). We are holy (Heb. 10:10). We are rich (2 Cor. 8:9). We are blessed (Gal 3:14). We are victorious (1 Cor. 15:57). It’s not because of what we do or what we have. It’s because of Jesus.

Let’s look outside ourselves and our performance and look to Jesus Who did it all for us. Our identity is found in Christ.
