Okay...after looking at the graphic, read the following to understand what the graphic is trying to illustrate. The "Identity" circle is actually supposed to be a "pendulum" so please keep that in mind as you design. Thanks!
God designed us with a need to be accepted, secure, significant, valued and purposeful. We call these five characteristics our identity. To look for fulfillment of our identity is normal and perfectly good. However, the main issue is where we look for fulfillment. If we look for fulfillment in the world, we'll end up in slavery. For example, if you try to find acceptance by trying to please others, you'll end up having to please those people at a escalating cost. If they like you for your charm, looks, and talent, then you'll have to keep giving them what they desire for your desire of acceptance to be found in them. In the same way, if you try to find your security in money, then you'll have to have more to continually fill that desire for security; one more dollar. And if you try to find your significance in your career or job, then you'll have to continue to give more of your life away in order to try and find significance there. Trying to find your identity in the world is a dead end; it's slavery…you are giving yourself over to something that demands more but can't give fulfill its deceitful promises. However, some think the answer to this is religion; but religion is in essence the same. If you try to find acceptance through behavior, then you'll end up having to behave continually better to be accepted. This typically means that you end up becoming a fake, or worse yet a judgmental hypocrite. You end up putting others down for the purpose of making yourself feel accepted through behavior. You'll not be able to share your true behavior, thoughts or feelings, for fear of rejection. Trying to find your identity in religion therefore, is also a dead end. However, the gospel is different than worldliness or religion. The gospel tells us that because Jesus died for our sins, rose to conquer death, and was resurrected to give us His righteousness, we are now unconditionally accepted by God. The good news of the gospel is that God accepts us not because of our bank account or behavior, but because of Jesus. If we find our identity in God through Jesus, where else do we need to find acceptance, security, purpose, value, and significance? The question of identity is settled in Jesus who is eternal and never changes. So, if I'm accepted because of Jesus, where else do I need to look for acceptance…I have it in Him. Therefore I can say yes or no to others freely. If I'm secure in God because of Jesus, I no longer have to work two jobs (potentially destroying my friendship and family) because I know that God is going to provide…freedom! And if I'm significant, a son or daughter of God, because of Jesus, then I no longer have to search for significance in fame or popularity, continually giving more than I have…thus I'm free. Now, the sad reality is that we never believe that we have our identity fully in God through Jesus. Therefore, often times, even as believers in Jesus, we end up searching for identity in the world or religion. Therefore, our identity is best illistrated as a pendulum. However, this is why it's great to be in a church or community of believers. As believers, we (and others) are to remind each other that our identity is solid in God because of Jesus. And, when we start looking elsewhere, our job is to remind each other to come back as quickly as possible. One of the greatest questions that we can ask each other as believers is "When did you forget that you were loved? Why are you looking elsewhere?". Lastly, once we have found our identity in God through Jesus (grace alone) and have found true freedom, then we can enjoy the world and religion the way God intended. We can love people and use money correctly, without trying to find our identity in them. We can obey rules, and live a life of morality, knowing that rules and morality actually bring freedom but don't require us to be judgmental. The gospel, knowing we are accepted by God because of Jesus really brings about true freedom. In heaven, we'll fully understand just how accepted, secure, valued, significant we are. We'll understand the purpose that God has given us to discover and delight in Him. Because identity is so intact, they'll be no more greed, selfishness or lust. Until that time, we can understand this in bits and pieces. But even in bits and pieces, we can truly start to live in the freedom that God desired for us when he created us.
