Beloved: Five Lies of Identity:
March 25 - April 21, 2019
In the season of Lent we reflect on our identity. Jesus himself struggled to remain faithful to his baptism. Directly after he was baptized by John, he goes out into the wilderness for the Spirit to prepare him for his public ministry. It was there that he is tempted to embrace other paths, to embrace a different identity than God's beloved son. It is no different for us. As we walk with Jesus in this time and beyond, we too are reminded that we are the beloved daughters and sons of God.
1) I am what I have, 2) I am what I do, 3) I am what other people say or think of me, 4) I am nothing more than my worst moment (Palm Sunday-Crucifixion), and 5) I am nothing less than my best moment. (Easter-Resurrection).
