You Are What You Do testimonial 6

Andy Whisenant | Nov 13th

“The natural inclination of the human heart is to seek meaning, purpose, and identity in ways that diminish us more than they build us up. As the old adage goes, we are “barking up the wrong tree.” In the end, none of these things will deliver on the promises they make to us. Meanwhile, the Lord says to us, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” And it is from that place of rest that he heals us with reminders that his love is fixed, that there is nothing we can do to lose it, and that our identity is “beloved daughters and sons.” It turns out, as Daniel reminds us so effectively in this book, that we aren’t what we do. Rather, we are who God says we are, and that is more than enough.”
