The Truth on Identity

Today’s culture offers kids many options as they search to find an answer to the question, who am I? In the New Reformation Catechism on Human Sexuality, we find this question and truth filled answer about identity. “Why is it comforting that we have a new identity in Jesus Christ?” The answer? “I am being remade into the image of Christ, to have a true identity, in body and soul, throughout the whole course of my life, to enjoy god and glorify him forever. He redeemed my life with the precious blood of his son, and has delivered me from the lie of Satan in the Garden. He also watches over me in such a way that he might free me from all sexual impurity as the temple of his indwelling.; in fact, all things must work together to remake me into the image of his Son. Because I have this new identity, Christ, by his Holy Spirit, also assures me of God’s steadfast love, and makes me wholeheartedly willing and ready from now on to enjoy true freedom as a new creation.”
