We're constantly asking ourselves who we are. We develop, work on, exercise, mature, educate and refine ourselves; and we ask a lot of questions along the way. Questions like: "Who do you want me to be?" or if we're feeling particularly healthy, "Who do I want to be?" But the reality underneath all of our personal development and refinement is that we actually started with something broken that we're desperately trying to fix.
We live in a culture that has two responses to this brokenness: One response comes in the form of voices of affirmation, keeping us feeling broken or unworthy; magnifying any emptiness, loneliness or anxiety as it creeps in. Those voices offer inadequate solutions to actually fix these growing problems. The other response we often find are the voices that would tell us we're not inherently broken. There's nothing wrong with us. We're just victims, and any inadequate feelings we have must be because of someone else, and we should punish them and move toward any truth that makes us feel most comfortable.
There's a third option: Christians talk about it all the time, but their lives often reveal a difficult journey in applying it. Join our conversation as we dig into Scripture and ask a miraculous God to do miracles in our life as we ask Him the question: Who do you say that I am?
