“Are you ever going to move on? Is there no better topic of discussion than, (our wounds) There is!! You are defined not by your abuse, your abandonment, death, depression or any other wound you have. Our identity is in Christ.”
We are often told (or tell ourselves) to “find our identity in Christ.” And rightly so, because living out of our new identity in Christ is the defining root of true sanctification. But it can also seem like a rather abstract concept. What does it actually feel like to find our identity in Christ in real time and amidst genuine struggle? How do we unite this great comprehensive category of sanctification to the concrete particulars of Scripture and everyday life?
