Where is Your Identity Found?
Many of you are feeling a big loss right now. You just realized that you lost 1,000 followers on Instagram and it’s killing you. Wow. What kind of world do we live in that people would be so devastated after losing friends that never really existed? For those of you who are unaware, Instagram just purged millions of spam accounts and it has hit people’s ego pretty hard (http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-30548463).
This is very good for us because it reveals to us where our identity and security are really grounded. If you’ve found yourself depressed because the number next to “followers” has dropped significantly with the Instagram purge then now is a good time to do some soul-searching. Where are you finding your worth? Where are you finding your identity? If you are a Christian then you need to find your worth and identity in the fact that God created you for a relationship with Himself and has crossed heaven and earth to provide the price for your eternal salvation. Your eternal inheritance is secured in heaven with God Himself.
