Identity in Christ

126 || How to Refocus Your Identity on Christ || Merritt Onsa

We’ve been talking about fear and what it says about our identity or, rather, how we’re placing our identity on something besides Jesus when we allow fear to stand in the way of what God created us to do with our lives.

This solo episode falls in line behind #122 and provides some next steps about what to do once you realize that you have, in fact, trusted in something beside the Lord to give you hope, wholeness, satisfaction or purpose.

There are three simple (I didn’t say easy) steps you can take to move past your fears and on to the dream God has placed on your heart. Listen to this quick solo episode to learn what they are and then join us in the Facebook Group to share how you’re moving forward despite the fear.

There are a few episodes I mention in this episode that you’ll want to go back to, if you haven’t heard them already.

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins
and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

~ 1 John 1:9 (ESV)

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
~ Philippians 4:6-7

Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out,
that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, 
~ Acts 3:19-20

I believe, Lord help me with my unbelief. 
~ Mark 9:24

122 || Obstacles to Finding Your Identity in Christ || Merritt Onsa

Our fears provide clues to understanding where we may have placed our identity in something besides Jesus. In this episode, you’ll discover the value of acknowledging what drives your fears. But you will need to tune in to next month’s solo episode to learn what you can do about it. In the meantime, I am challenging you to really look at what you’re holding tight to and what, if you lost it, would crush you, because that’s where you’ll begin to see that you have misplaced your identity.
