YOU ARE NOT A FAKE
THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR
I ONCE HANDED A COIN to a shopkeeper, who didn't even look at it before handing it back to me with the explanation that it was counterfeit. When I asked him how he knew, he told me that it was too lightweight. A genuine coin would be heavier than that one. To me that emphasized the fact that, to be able to correct any case of mistaken identity, the first requirement is to be fully aware of true identity.
It's not impossible that you might be suffering from a case of mistaken identity, even now as you are reading this. Are you thinking of yourself as ill, old, tired, unloved, unwanted, injured? Are financial troubles or a family difficulty weighing you down? If so, gaining a clearer understanding of your spiritual identity will make a huge difference.
The very first chapter of the Bible describes our identity as God's creation: "God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion ...." It continues, "And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good" (Gen. 1:26, 31).
