Chris Treborn of AnchorMEN is working on defining a Sharper Image within the human heart as he divides misconceptions from absolute truths, by trimming the fat and gristle from the whole cuts of meat.
“It is our nature to seek our identity in the praise of others and in the praise of self. But the praise doesn’t last, and we are never satisfied. God has provided, through Jesus’ death, a new identity to all who know him. This new identity is built on Jesus’ performance rather than on our own; we receive the praise that He deserved. The more we know God, the more our new identity is strengthened and our old identity dies away.”
