Where do you invoke “we” and “us” language in your conversation? What areas do you seek to win arguments or seek to defend a cause or perspective? Those are the things that may have become core loves and pieces of your identity.
We are currently working through Colossians as a church for our weekly Scripture memorization. Last week’s fighter verse was, “Set you minds on things above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God” (Colossians 3:2-3). Hidden with Christ means being united to Christ. And being united to Christ means that He is your identity as a Christian. Colossians is a beautiful letter describing our identity as Christians, those united and bound to Christ. Consider today whether you are reveling in and finding daily identity in other causes, people, or activities more than the Lord Jesus.
