I have a cross tattooed on my ankle. It has a braided loop that begins on one side and loops around to the other. When I first got this tattoo I just thought it looked cool. Years later I began to realize the significance of the design. I discovered this statement through something Jesus told me about it. So in His words- ‘the identity of who you are, what you stand on, begins and ends with what I did on the cross’.
The cross brought me into the arms of my loving Father God. It gave me opportunity to be His daughter. It enabled me to be a home to Holy Spirit. The cross is the greatest expression of love throughout all of time and space.
This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! 2 Corinthians 5:17
What I find my identity in will guide my lifestyle and the way I treat others. Finding myself as a beloved daughter empowers me to see others through that same love and grace that I received.
