Who Defines Us?
We are constantly in danger of letting the world define us instead of God. It is only natural to shape our self-image by the attitudes and opinions of our parents, our peer groups and our society. It is only when we define ourselves by the truths of God’s Word rather than the thinking and experiences of the world that we can discover our deepest identity. The Scriptures exhort us to look to Christ, not to self, for the solutions we so greatly need. To genuinely believe and embrace the reality of who we have become...as a result of our faith in Christ...demands consistent discipline and exposure to the Bible. It also requires fellowship and encouragement in a community of like-minded believers. http://billygraham.org/decision-magazine/march-2014/how-to-be-conformed-to-christs-image/?SOURCE=BD143YDV2&utm_source=DecDevo3.12.14&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=DecisionDevotional
