A significant transition takes place in our relationship with God when we longer see ourselves as working FOR God, but WITH God.
That transition takes place when we no longer see ourselves a -
sinners, but as saints fully redeemed
servants, but as friends of God
orphans, but as sons and daughters
This change of insight into our true identity will radically upset the spirit of religion that desires to control us with a lesser image of ourselves than how God sees us. It will also challenge our understanding of God's love and require that we step out of the cell of a broken identity into the freedom of a new creation.
