If our true worth and significance and identity come from something so solid and eternal as God Himself, we don’t have to pretend when we are imperfect. We don’t stand on our accomplishments and personality and performance. We stand securely on the nature of an infinite, loving God. We don’t have to manage our image or pretend we are okay, when we are really broken and imperfect. The grace God gives us in defining who we are changes everything.
