Identity, Personality & Purpose

Released April 26, 2022 by Mavericks & Misfits with Jeff Lyle


After receiving a heartfelt email from a listener who felt completely stuck and unfulfilled in life, Jeff felt the need to talk about the three non-negotiable components we all need for the Christian life to make sense. This is what he calls the whole enchilada: identity, personality, and purpose. In this episode of Mavericks & Misfits, we hear from Jeff as a bit of a life-coach who exposes where so many of us go wrong as Jesus followers. To get started on knowing who you are in Christ, how you are in the personality God has given you, and why you are in the God-assigned purpose of your life, you must come to a place where you refuse to go another day without pursuing these three things. Purpose flows from identity. Some Christians immediately seek their purpose before even stopping to consider their identity. That is why many remain stuck: because God doesn’t reveal purpose to those who don’t have identity. This podcast episode will help the surrendered listener begin to get unstuck and begin flowing in the direction which results in peace, hope, rest and purpose.
