Gospel Identity: Who are you?

Dear Redemption City Family,

In American Culture, we define ourselves by things like sexual orientation, political party, race, religion, and even our own home state. An easy way to locate where you find your identity is to fill in the blank to this statement: “I am _____.”  

Our identity will emerge as a composite of things. It will have a hidden mantra, such as, “I am what I eat, who I sleep with, how I make money, what I wear, what I look like, or where I come from.”

According to the Bible, defining ourselves by what we do is not fundamental to who we are. Rather, what Christ has done is fundamental to who we are. In Christ, we are first children of God, and everything else is secondary.   

Where do you find your identity? What does it mean to be a follower of Jesus? Join us tomorrow as we look at Colossians 3:1-7 and discover true identity in Christ.  

I hope to see you there.  

Praying for you,
Pastor Juan
