The Identity Series Part IV: IMAGE

My, Devotion to Him #193

Verse Passage: Psalms 139:14 “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” – NIV

In this world people tell you who you should be not who you are. They put brand names on everything and we judge people based on the certain brands they have. Because somehow we think that certain brands tells you something about that person.

This world places certain car brands. Makeup brands, hair product brands, food brands, clothing brands, electronic brands, etc above other brands. Many in this world believe that your poor if you don’t have a certain brand or your not cool. Others will use all of there income to manage a certain “brand” lifestyle. All of this is about image.

What so many people forget is that God Himself has fashioned us in His own image.

It is this image that we should be focused on. God has more products than all the #1 companies in the world. He has more net worth that all the companies of the world. He’s been the #1 designer since the beginning. Amazingly enough He has been relevant through the ages. In fact His work is so perfect that He has not needed to make any major redesigns in His product, His product is dominating the market year after year. He’s never had to recall any product for defect functions, He’s never been sued for damages, He’s never overhauled His company, He’s never been involved in bad business practices, He’s never made bad product ever. 

So with God so wonderful and amazing why do we break our back to maintain a logo on a car, clothes, electronics, or anything? The only logo we should be focused on is the Cross!

It’s been in style for over 2,000 years. What’s even more fascinating is the simple fact that it’s free! Another amazing thing to know is God fashioned you and called it good. He was satisfied with the image He created because it was a reflection of Him. 

Let’s stop associating our identity with a logo in the store and start associating our identity with God the Father. After all He made you. 

God bless!
