Identity

Parenting With Purpose – Week 4

WHAT IS YOUR TRUE IDENTITY?

“WHAT YOU DO FLOWS FROM WHO YOU ARE” MARK DRISCOLL

“…Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan River. He was led by the Spirit in the wilderness, where he was tempted by the devil for forty days. Jesus ate nothing all that time and became very hungry. Then the devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, tell this stone to become a loaf of bread.” But Jesus told him, “NO, the scriptures say, “people do not live by bread alone.” Luke 4:1-4 NLT

“Then the devil took him up and revealed to him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. “I will give you the glory of these kingdoms and authority over them,” the devil said, “because they are mine to give to anyone I please.  I will give it all to you if you will worship me.” Jesus replied, “the Scriptures say, “you must worship the Lord your God and serve only him.” Luke 4:5-8 NLT

“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” Romans

“Then the devil took him to Jerusalem, to the highest point of the Temple, and said, “If you are the Son of God, jump off! For the scriptures say, “He will order his angels to protect and guard you. And they will hold you up with their hands so you wont even hurt your foot on a stone.” Luke 4:9-11 NLT

“Jesus responded, “the scriptures also say, “you must not test the Lord your God.” When the devil had finished tempting Jesus, he left him until the next opportunity came.” Luke 4:12-13 NLT

KNOW GOD

“By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence.” 2 Peter 1:3 NLT

You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.” Luke 3:22

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO TO SEE GOD MOVE UNHEALTHY THINGS IN YOUR LIFE OUT IS SPEND MORE TIME WITH HIM

KNOW THE TRUTH

“WHAT COMES INTO OUR MINDS WHEN WE THINK ABOUT GOD IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING ABOUT US.” – A.W. TOZER

“But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.”

“But you are God’s chosen treasure – priests who are kings, a spiritual “nation” set apart as God’s devoted ones. He called you out of darkness to experience his marvelous light, and now he claims you as his very own. He did this so that you would broadcast his glorious wonders throughout the world” 1 Peter 2:9 TPT

For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” Ephesians 2:10

“We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”

RELY ON HIM

“My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness. So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 NLT

“What actually took place is this: I tried keeping rules and working my head off to please God, and it didn’t work. So I quit being a “law man” so that I could be God’s man. Christ’s life showed me how, and enabled me to do it. I identified myself completely with him. Indeed, I have been crucified with Christ. My ego is no longer central. It is no longer important that I appear righteous before you or have your good opinion, and I am no longer driven to impress God. Christ lives in me. The life you see me living is not “mine,” but it is lived by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. I am not going to go back on that…”
