This week, I’m going to talk about identity.
My personal statement/motto for 2015 is Galatians 1:10:
“Am I now trying to get people to think well of me? Or do I want God to think well of me? Am I trying to please people? If I were, I would not be serving Christ.”
I have had to learn not to spend time worrying about what others think of me. It’s important to listen to others’ advice, especially close family and friends, but ultimately I live for the Savior, and I’m looking for His approval only.
It’s important to remember in who our identity is found in; in Christ alone.
So, if someone puts you down, talks behind your back, or makes you feel generally crappy, instead of wasting energy and breath on ignorant people, focus that energy on celebrating your identity as a child of God.
That’s it, y’all.
