“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” —2 Corinthians 5:17
Who am I? Why am I here?
The answers to those questions shape how we see ourselves and how we live our lives. For better or for worse, we chase what we think we deserve and we pursue what we believe is our destiny.
This is why finding your identity in Christ is so important: We become who we think we are.
We were made by God for relationship with him and meaningful purpose in life. God tells us this over and over throughout the Bible. Reading about how God made us, pursued us, and gave us purpose changes how we see ourselves and how we live our lives.
