Episode 165: The Issue of Your Identity The question often asked to many young children is “What do you want to be when you grow up?” The question is innocent enough but notice the subtle difference: they are not asked WHO they want to be (identity), but WHAT they want to be (activity). Thus began the training of most of us to draw our own sense of being from the thing(s) we are most often doing. This leads to so much unnecessary loss. Could it be that the majority of us have been unconsciously trained to live as pretenders? What if most Christians are ignorant of who they are because they live to do instead of to be? Today’s podcast highlights several believers in the Bible who pretended to be someone that they were never intended by God to be. Their examples may serve as a point of transformation for us in our own journey.
