Healing Our Self Image

Emotional health comes from having a healthy self image. A healthy self image can only come from find our identity in Jesus Christ. When our identity is not in Christ, we extract our identity from ourselves. This usually means we determine our worth by our talents, accomplishments, how we compare to those around us, our ideas, intellect, strength, willpower, knowledge, attractiveness, wealth, etc. The Apostle Paul almost constantly spoke of being "in Christ." It was the reality in which he lived and one that he constantly confessed with his mouth. "I am...." The sentence that comes after these two words will either boast of you, or boast about who you belong to.
"I AM THAT I AM." God is the only one who can build His entire identity on Himself and not be disappointed.
