A series on the identity crisis of Christian culture

We have lost our way, and it shows.

Instead of a people to be, we are programs to run.

Instead of realizing our rest, we have boxes to check.

Instead of loving our neighbors, we work overtime at over-thinking our own uprightness.

Somewhere along the way, we replaced him with “holiness,” “it is done” with deeds to do, and freedom in Christ with a spiritual measuring stick for our faith.

I’ve tried it all, and I’m tired. This is struggle-theology, try-hard religion, and Christ-less christianity. It’s time to own who we are, not what we’ve been told we must be.

I’m on mission this May to explore the theme of Christian identity for 30 consecutive days. The keys of the Kingdom of God are wrapped up in the folds of faith, but enemies have built up doors that were never meant to be. It’s time we took our key, purchased by nothing less than the life of the Son of God, and opened the door.

This key is identity — who we are in Jesus.

Inviting pew-weary Jesus people to embrace + experience their truest identity as beloved through subversive spiritual disciplines. Hope*Writer. Creative mentor.
