This past weekend at Eastbrook Church, as we celebrated the resurrection, we launched a new series entitled “Who Am I?: Finding Identity in Christ.” My first message in that series, “He Is – I Am,” explored how the life, death and resurrection of Jesus the Messiah leads us into the discovery of what it truly means to be human in relation to God and as our unique selves.
The remainder of the series addresses this pervasive question within our culture: who am I? We receive all sorts of advice in answering that question, from ‘following our noses’ to trying on different identities to reacting against the prevailing culture or our histories. But how do we discover our personal identity? Even more, is the concept of personal identity even something that is helpful to consider?
This series looks at what Jesus’ life, death and resurrection mean for our personal identity with God in Christ.
Here are the titles of the series:
- April 7/8: I am not stuck
- April 14/15: I am known by faith
- April 21/22: I am more than my image
- April 28/29: I am made uniquely
- May 5/6: I am unfinished
- May 12/13: I am loved beyond measure
- May 19/20: I am filled with God’s power
