“Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.” Thomas Jefferson
How do we determine our identity? We are all aware of people who talk a big game. If they were able to measure themselves by their claims, their image would be far greater.
There is, however, a difference between the way we judge ourselves and the way others judge us. We judge ourselves by our intentions and others judge us by our actions. Often, our intentions and actions are not always the same.
Even though who we are may be defined by our actions, especially as it is connected to our leadership, our identity is far more significant than simply being defined by our actions.
Our identity is summed up more in the actions of someone else, than by our own. The actions of Jesus are what delineate and define us. Interestingly enough, it is because of His actions we learn who we are and what we are to do.
Thankfully, God’s wisdom preordained an avenue by which the actions of one man would define and identity His children.
