This is a question we all must wrestle with.
So many of us walk around with masks that try to cover up who we really are. We pretend, we perform, we run, and we hide. Our failures are loud, our brokenness is overwhelming, and our wounds run deep. We let the scars from our past define our present and distort our future. We listen to the lies we tell ourselves, rather than believing the Truth that sets us free. We let the cracks in our jars of clay tell more of our story than the light within.
Many of us live in the reality of the dirt we see in our lives, rather than the blood of Christ that’s washed us clean. We live out of our fear and insecurity rather than our identity as daughters of the King. We wrestle with doubt, shame, guilt, jealousy, and anxiety instead of freedom, grace, acceptance, love, and mercy. Our shortcomings and faults become measuring sticks rather than places of dependence on God.
We all think we’re someone we’re not. In Christ, we are called holy and blameless, rescued and forgiven, chosen and loved. We are a part of a royal priesthood, adopted as sons and daughters of the God Most High. His labels for us give us a new identity, new meaning, and new life. We are transferred out of the domain of darkness into the kingdom of His beloved son (Col. 1:14). We walk in the light as He is in the light (1 Jn 1:7), and when we do so, we no longer live as we once were, we can live according to who we truly are.
