Jan 15, 2024: A Matter of Identity

Robert E. Webber

With whom do you identify? Are you committed to follow the nature of rebellion against God’s purposes for life inherited from Adam, or are you willing to say, “I need to have my nature formed by the second Adam, the one who is in full union with the purpose God has for his creatures and the world”? The question is “With whom do you identify—Adam or Jesus?” To enter God’s embrace means a continuous turning from Adam-identity to Jesus-identity.
