The spiritual saga of a creaturely soul
Personal identity sits right at the centre of the Christian faith – knowing who God is and knowing who we are are key parts of the story of Scripture. Repeatedly in the Old Testament people encounter God and ask “Who are you?” and “What is your name?”. In the New Testament we get the final answer: the great “I AM” of the Old Testament is God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – this is my name. What of us? Who are we and what is our name? In our current climate identity is something we choose and construct for ourselves, but what happens when this comes into dialogue with a vision of God that gives us our identity? We are Adam, we are flesh and we are spirit, we are human. But we are more than that. We are called by name, we are given new natures, and we are destined for immortality. And along the way, we have to stop and remind ourselves of some of the details of that story. What does identity mean in Christ? Are there limits to my autonomy? Does character count? In the final analysis what we want to know is this: who does God say I am?
