What is the relationship between what we do and who we are? What we do is just one aspect of who we are, and just one role we play. Roles come and go in each season of life, but who we are goes far beyond what we do.
Who we are as believers is rooted in being created in the image of God and adopted into the family of God. This is what should define us. Our talents and abilities are given by God for His Glory.
Where does your identity lie?
I would encourage us to always remember that we are children of God not by our worth but by our birth into the family of God. More than being called boss, businessman, CEO, husband, or father… the title of “disciple” and “servant of God” is far more fulfilling and sustaining.
1 Peter 2:9 says “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.”
I want to remind us that the purpose of our gifts and abilities is to declare his praises and point people to his marvelous light.
1 Peter 2:9
You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness and into his marvelous light.
