Struggling With Identity

Struggling With Identity Sermon Illustration

Humans are the only part of creation that struggle with identity. A tomato vine doesn’t assume it is a pine tree or struggle with representing other than by growing tomatoes, hosting caterpillars on its branches, and leaving aromas of summer on the gardener’s arms. Humans think and wonder. “Body and soul contain thousands of possibilities out of which you can build many identities. But in only one of these will you find your true self that has been hidden in Christ from all eternity” (Benner, 16).
