Being, Knowing, and Doing—Part 37 The Spiritual Life: Loving Ourselves Correctly II

This entry is part 37 of 37 in the series Being, Knowing, and Doing

A biblical understanding of grace helps us to understand our identity in Christ. It helps us to avoid what Ken Boa describes as “worm” theology. That’s the idea that you’re worthless and are no good for anything as a sinner. While we do sin, we are objectively justified and sanctified. Understanding our identity in Christ also repels the opposite notions of pride and absolute autonomy. After all, there is nothing we have that we did not receive from God.

Scripture describes our actions flowing out of our identity in Christ. But it is easy to forget what Scripture says about us. Consider memorizing some verses about our identity. This can be a great reminder of who we are in Christ. We are saved, justified, sanctified, redeemed. We are first and foremost sons and daughters of God.

This teaching is part 37 of a subseries on stewardship in the larger series, “Being, Knowing & Doing: How Godly Principles Strategically Affect Men’s Everyday Lives.”
