Stolen Identity | by Kevin Meyer
How common is identity theft? Good question.
When you hear of another data breach or a friend shares the woes of their ID theft, you can't help but wonder: Am I next? The fears around identity theft are real and alarming.
Nearly 60 million Americans have been affected by identity theft, according to a 2018 online survey by the Harris Poll. This painful experience has impacted almost 20% of people in the United States.
There is another type of identity theft that impacts 100% of people everywhere. The consequences of this theft are far greater and far more damaging. If you have had thoughts like, "I'm worthless,""I'm a loser,""I'm ugly,""God doesn't love me"or"I'll never amount to anything,"then you have had your identity stolen.
Knowing your identity spiritually is not optional if you want to live a peace-filled, joy-filled and righteous life. In Christ, you are precious and valuable. You are victorious and beautiful. You are deeply loved by your Father in heaven. Your life will amount to more than you can imagine.
Your identity as a follower of Jesus is too important to neglect. Know it, believe it and protect it. Your present and future depends on living in Christ.
