You don’t see The Message version of this scripture very often but I love how it says “in the One who makes me who I am.” I hope I have done a good job of showing you who makes us who we are, why and how. That is the goal of I’m Made New.
I think I have said this before, maybe more than once, we have a life to enjoy. We have humanity to serve. It is important to know who we are and trust that it cannot be changed, no matter our circumstances. We need to believe that we have a God who accepts us, makes us secure, and believes we are significant.
Our identity in Christ is our confidence to carry out the enjoyment and purpose of life on earth. What God says about us is truth, it is what we rely on when the world around us tells us otherwise.
