College professors often say that there is only one plot in literature, “Who am I.” I would venture to say that the search for one’s identity is the bases of the human condition. Even looking at the bible every character at one point or another questioned their identity. This shows us how important identity is in our relationship with the Lord. It is the devil’s goal to lead people away from their identity. The devil even sought to make Jesus question his identity, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.” - Matthew 4:3.
In our new movie Encounter: Paradise Lost Jesus seeks to restore the identity of six most precious children who are suffering with addictions to drugs, thoughts of suicide, and holding onto hatred in the deepest places of their hearts. What is your identity? Who are you in Christ?
