True “Identity IS Christ”. Don’t you think it’s high time you did away with the idea that is “Identity IN Christ”? There’s a difference in those statements. Everywhere, all over the place, scriptures insist on making it known that our union with God IS Christ. Christ, is the revelation of Identity, in
and AS God. The identity that was before the world was in fact formed, the identity that is Love. What God did is greater than whatever labels we give ourselves. The understanding that is Christ (our Identity) can come to anyone in any place under any label. The understanding of which could change everything.
And we know that the Son of God came so we could recognize and understand the truth of God
This is why what God did (said) is greater than Christianity. Believing Christ (True Self — Identity) isn’t to/for Christians alone, it is to/for the world. All labels. It’s to believe God IS You, IN You, AS You, and THROUGH You. This is what I consider the truth of God — the reality that is Christ; one beyond the box that is labels. There are Christians that have no idea who they are (their true identity). There are Buddhists who have perfect comprehension of who they are (their true identity in God). There are Muslims who understand who they are (Identity in God), as well as some Christians. Weren’t we taught not to judge books by their covers?
Identity (Christ) isn’t in labels. It’s in understanding who God IS, and God is LOVE — And so are YOU.
How is LOVE restricted to a label or a group of people only? Just HOW?! To believe in Christ is to believe in WHO YOU TRULY ARE. It’s to grant yourself PERMISSION to be FULLY You, to be LOVE! It’s funny how Jesus emphasized greatly on LOVE, and LOVING. Realize YOU, then Express YOU; for without the first, the second is invalid. What God said about Himself (Christ — the Truth — Who you are) is far beyond what Labels can bountifully describe.
There are they who are wonderful believers of Christ (their True Identity in God), and aren’t in the religion you could possibly expect; in fact the least people you could possibly expect. And there are they who are called Christians, ‘expected’ to be believers of Christ, yet, have no clue WHO THEY ARE (Christ). Paul goes on to say, aren’t we to look beyond what we think of people based on labels and appearances? What God displayed in Christ is enough. Hence, we consider no man anymore after what we could possibly think (unsound evaluations). Rather, we judge based on what God thinks (Christ). If you should at all label a person, label them Christ (LOVE). How else could they possibly know themselves, if they are not re-minded who they are?
Preach the message, go into the world, let the people know that their IDENTITY IS CHRIST — LOVE!
