What does it mean to be so consumed with Jesus that there is no other way of seeing ourselves other than as our lives identify with Him? The overwhelming message of scripture is that for those of us who follow Jesus, the entirety of our lives are to be lived under the authority and direction of Him. The temptation is to allow our vision of Jesus and His kingdom to become clouded by concerns of the present realities in which we find ourselves. Sometimes we grow to love these other identities because they feel more accessible and tangible and give us something we want. This morning’s message is a challenge to have Jesus be the thing that defines our lives.
