Throughout generations, one of the core factors to the rising chaos in our world has been identity crisis. The world is a collection of societies. Societies are made up of individuals/families. Identity crisis occurs when individuals pursue to fit in the mould of the world to satisfy their lack of sense of belonging within these societies. According to social psychologists, the need to belong all boils down to survival. Those suffering from this crisis desperately seek a clearer sense of self and an acceptable role in society. Now, for those of us who are in Christ, we know we have found our everlasting belonging in God. As a result, we can IDENTIFY ourselves with the things of God instead of this lost world.
They say “the only time you should ever look back is to see how far you have come.” I say, we should take a look back at where God brought us from not to reflect on the distance we have traveled rather the DESTINY change we have received in Christ Jesus. This shall be a reflection that will restore the power of our ministry of reconciliation and one that will encourage us to develop a life structured by an unwavering gratitude for the priceless blood that was shed on our behalf.
