Who am I? What do I belong to? Am I unique? Pastor Alan focused on these three questions. Questions that we might answer differently depending on if we are 15 or 55. It seems apparent that many issues in peoples’ lives have as a root cause the individual’s sense of identity. Counselors of all colors agree that identity is the foundation for much in an individual. The Bible teaches that identity is a creation of God. He wants his people to have a very clear understanding who they are. Pastor Alan’s thoughts based on Scripture are very helpful to understanding how God wants his people to see themselves.
