Identity and Worth-are there two greater values in life?
Identity is defined as; “the state or fact of being oneself, and not another.”
Do you realize the FREEDOM in this definition?
This is not defining what you should be, what you should do or how you should do it!
No! Identity is clearly defined as YOUR state of being YOURSELF!
The problem is, we let the other little word, WORTH, get in the way and steel away our FREEDOM of being ourselves.
Worth is defined as many things, my favorite definition is; “excellence of character or quality as commanding esteem.”
Friends, so often we get caught up in the other definitions of WORTH…
“usefulness and importance…”
“wealth, riches, property or possessions…”
“good or important enough to justify…”
Now, these definitions are true in part, they are just not whole or complete until you add a clarifying piece to them.
Who is it or what is it that defines the WORTH?
As believers in Jesus Christ, there is only one clarifying piece to determine our WORTH, that is the person of Jesus Christ!
This is what He says about you…
You are His child!
“But to all who believed Him and accepted Him, He gave the right to become children of God.” John 1:12
He has adopted you and brought you to Himself! You belong to Him!
“God decided in advance to adopt us into His own family by bringing us to Himself through Jesus Christ.” Ephesians 1:5
You are a daughter or son of The King! You are chosen, selected, adopted and made family by The King of Kings Himself.
Your identity and worth is found in Him and Him alone!
So stop defining your worth by how much you do, what you do, or how well you do it. Begin to realize that your identity is in Christ, and because of that your worth is PRICELESS, LIMITLESS, MATCHLESS!
Lie #7 – I am worthless!
TRUTH #7 – I am of matchless value!
Detox the Lie and speak God’s Truth over your life!
Your identity is in Christ and Your Worth is Priceless!
