Wrong ID?

Monday, May 21, 2007
Last week, a light went on! A bomb dropped! My whole perception of myself was turned upside down. I had been chatting to my wife about what God had been showing her and i just realised I've been living with the wrong ID.

On my spiritual passport I've had my name, my Irishness, my ministry, status as a worship leader, guitar player, member of New Frontiers church, reasonable squash player, songwriter. But God was saying to me, is this who you really are? What happens if you came across a more Irish person or a better squash player or a better guitarist? What happens if your identity is criticised or challenged? What would happen if each of these things, good as they are, were taken off me tomorrow? Would I as a person collapse? Do I depend on these things for my worth?

I had to answer that I would probably collapse.

So I'm in the long painful process of getting a new passport replacing the above with

Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God
John 1:12

Now if we are children, then we are heirs heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ
Romans 8:17
