Last week, I created a post that kickstarted the theme for this summer: identity. I talked about how we are not losers or failures. Rather, we are cherished, powerful, and saved through our Lord!
God, the Creator of the universe, took time to make you and me. He uniquely created everyone of us for a reason and for a purpose. Often times, we wonder if our value is placed on where we work, who we befriend, and how we look. But identity is so much more than that.
It’s putting our faith and trust to the One who loves us so much that He sent Jesus to die for us.
In this video, Pastor Louie Giglio talks about what gives our life value. It’s easy to place our identity in what is around us. But, he challenges us to not look to what is in front of us, but who created the world around us.
As Pastor Giglio says, “It all boils down to this simple unthinkable thing. That you are a unique, one of a kind creation of God.”
It’s only five minutes, but it is so worth your time to watch and listen! I hope this brings encouragement to you. Identity is so important, and it’s even more important to know where it came from.
I pray you are inspired as I was after watching this video.
A few things I want to mention:
1. The Honest Pursuit is turning 1-year-old this Saturday, May 26th! To celebrate, we are hosting a GIVEAWAY with awesome prizes!! I have created 3 ways for anyone to win on through the blog’s social media accounts: Facebook, Instagram, and the website. Check out this post to read more about how to win and see the prizes!!
2. Next Thursday, there will be a guest post that will continue the identity series from one of my friends! Hint: it will be about God and who He is so stay tuned!
3. The Honest Pursuit is still accepting letters for The Open Letter Collective. If you or someone you know would love to write a letter, message us! It’s so encouraging and powerful to read the kind of letters people write, and you don’t have to be a writer to submit one!
That is all, friends! What did you think about the video? What was something that stood out to you? Let me know in the comments!
