Don’t let other people define who you are as a daughter or a son because you will not become one in this mode. You will be a consumer and a clone.
Consume Jesus. Those who eat Him will become themselves because of Him.
FREEDOM FROM THE STUFF
The illusive freedom of Religion.
"They may be utilised but they are not you.."
Richard Rohr observes, “I no longer use events or titles, roles or opinions, clothing or money, affiliations or contacts, or even churches, temples, or synagogues to define myself. I make good “use” of them, and can also let go of them or even keep them and love them, but I do not “believe” them as if they represented final substantial reality. They are all passing, relative goods.” (1) They may be utilised. But they are not you. Adopted as who we are they become the false self and the false identity of the self who has not yet found their identity in Jesus.
