Knowing who you are is the secret to just about everything. So much of what we do and say revolves around how we see ourselves, and how we see ourselves depends on how we perceive the God. The connection might seem elusive at first, but living in victory over sin is intricately tied to our identity. When the serpent tempted Adam and Eve to be like God, was that not about their identity? All of the sin, death, and destruction in our world are rooted in an identity issue.
The gospel, we must understand, is an identity message. God does not just provide for us a future destiny but also a current identity. Life in this world is never ideal, but only those who know of God's goodness and understand their significance in his eyes can break free from the commonality and corruption that plagues our planet.
From Glory to Glory is a life-changing 40-day devotional journey that is broken into four primary phases. Each phase emphasizes a different aspect of our quest to find security in Christ and all that goes along with it.
It is imperative that we lay hold of our identity in Christ because genuinely walking with the Lord will put us out of step with the world around us - even those we are trying to help. If we do not know who we are, we will find ourselves living for the approval of others and neglecting God's good plans and purposes as a result!
Even though the glory of God's children is hidden to most of this world, the reality of who we become in Christ seems almost too good to be true. It is true, though, and through the eye of faith, we can discover significance, wholeness, and freedom like never before as the Almighty Creator clothes us with is glory. No earthly significance can compare.
