|I did a search on 'who are you' images and liked this one.|
(It's my blog.)
Recently I've come across two articles/essays that I really love.
The more I think of them the more I love them
They remind me of who I am.
Yes, of course, that might remind some of you of The Who's "Who Are You?"
We really liked that as the opening song of CSI....
The first article/essay I love - in this theme - is Tim Keller's "Why Your Christian Identity Should Supercede All Others".
I really know that my Christian identity should supercede all others, but somehow I forget.
Yeah. I admit.
I sometimes identify myself as an older lady who is an American, and a wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, aunt, friend, etc. ... and a Christian.
But Keller reminds me that Christian should supercede all other identities.
And he's right!!!!
And there's this article/essay on rejection... by Andrea Lucado (daughter of Max Lucado)...
Now Andrea is much younger than I... but somehow her essay resonated with me.
So when I embrace my identity... though I don't understand it all (I'm just human) ... I am free.
Free to be me... which is Christ's... which means I don't have to follow a bunch of rules... and I don't have to know how to pray perfectly, etc.,... and well, I can just BE.
WHAT A PROFOUND RELIEF.
