Hello my friends!
I've read numerous books where the main character becomes aware that his true identity is something other than previously realized. Now, an outsider might wonder why a guy would struggle at the discovery that he's really the son of a king, rather than that of a peasant, but I do understand the disorientation that would surely set in. After all, every thing you've known and experienced would have to be reconsidered on way more than a thought process.
I believe this same disorientation, along with the fears as to the far-reaching ramifications, has caused most of us to hesitate to accept our real identity in Christ. If we listen to the mind of the world, we will imagine that any real confidence in knowing from whom we are born expresses arrogance. You know what I mean. After all, who do you think you are and why do you think you are so special? Yeah, it's easier just to pretend that our new life in Christ is more about doctrine than reality, isn't it? Don't be afraid to believe who you are.
In a society where somebody will find a way to judge your every move or motive as evil, how are you to handle yourself? do you really have to walk on egg shells in hopes that you can keep everybody happy? This week's ShovelAudio program is entitled "What if it's not wicked?", and in it, Adam and I jump into issues and the condemnation that often keeps believers living as if in a straitjacket or even paralyzed with guilt. Come join us, or even take us along with you by downloading the mp3 file into your mobile player! :)
Yes, I am now on FaceBook. I figured I might as well take advantage of the social network so that I can connect with some who probably wouldn't find me otherwise. I don't spend a lot of time on it, but I am starting to send out links and eventually updates when I have new stuff. If you want to connect to help spread some good news, you can find me here:
