Every culture has ways to help answer the timeless question, “Who am I?” If our identity is centered in Christ, then we must discern if current cultural values are true or false. Jesus said that He came to give you life and life to the full, but in the same breath He also said the enemy of our souls comes to steal, kill and destroy. To say yes to Christ-centered identity is also to say no to the world (false cultural values), the flesh, and the enemy of your soul.
The most pressing cultural value today says that our sexuality defines us. In other words, our sexuality = our identity, and that our sexual identity is ours to discover. According to God’s design this is not only false, but harmful. Sexuality is not who you are, it is how you are. Who you are is created in God’s image, as male and female, to reveal to the world the very image of God. This is a beautiful life that brings goodness and flourishing to our world. Who we are informs what we do and how we choose to live. Through Jesus we are called to live a life of holy sexuality.
