Identity Theft

Friends of ours were notified last night that their two daughters (23/25), who are backpacking it in Europe, lost money and ID’s by theft.  Obviously they were quite upset.  One of them, after only a three days of a three week trip, wanted to come home.  They were going nowhere without ID.  I hope by the time this blog posts they have been favored by the embassy and are off for more sister adventures.

Their predicament made me realize something today.  I may have lost my ID too for a bit.  Kind of like losin’ your groove.  However, the more I ponder this- the bigger the smile on my face today.  The ONLY identity I have is Christ.  My ID isn’t what I DO, or a piece of paper, it’s WHO I am in Christ.  And the more I think about grace, mercy, adoption, forgiveness, companionship… the BIGGER the smile.

Don’t lose your ID.  Being a ministry leader, or an influencer, in charge of anything at church really doesn’t mean anything in comparison to WHO we are in Christ.  All else fades compared to Him. Selah.
