Athlete, Use A Different Formula

I believe many of us like to have a clear cut way to see things. We like it when we know the expectations and can work to meet them. If you are one of those people you will like what I am about to show you! The Bible has a formula to help you as you wrestle to find your motivation in Christ and your identity in Him. Let me first remind you what you already know too well; what the world's formula for your Identity.

World's Formula for Your Identity = Your Performance + Other's Opinions about You

This one doesn't need much explaining since, sadly, this is the beat that gets played in almost everything we watch, see, experience and read in mainstream western culture today.

But God's formula is so much better and so much simpler.

God's Formula for Your Identity = What God Says about You

We need to shift our focus from listening so much to what the world tells us and listen more to what God says is true about us. In order to do this we need to know what God says about us. This brings us to a vital aspect of our relationship with Jesus: Reading the Bible.

Reading the Word of God is how we know God and know what he says about us. The bible is a book all about God, God's plan, God's creation (that's you), God's will and God's ways. The beautiful thing is we can know with 100% certainty what God thinks of us.  So go ahead, open up the living word of God and let Him tell you whose you are and who you are!

Not sure where to start?  

Start your week off with this challenge: Read Ephesians 1. 
The Apostle Paul, inspired by the Holy Spirit, wrote these words to the Ephesian Christians and God in His power preserved these words for us to read today.
