    An Identity That Dignifies Us | Chapter 3

    An Identity That Dignifies Us | Chapter 3

    Scripture in Black and White: Finding Identity and Dignity in Christ
    In the third season of 'Scripture in Black and White,' Bobby Harrington, Anthony Walker, and Michelle Eagle invite listeners to explore the idea of dignity in the context of one's identity and roles. Today's episode goes deep into the dichotomy of shame and dignity and how people often allow societal categorizations, past failures, or external perceptions to determine their self-worth. The hosts assert that only by centering oneself in Christ, surrendering all shame and embracing the spiritual transition from old selves to new creations in Christ, can true dignity be found. The concept includes affiliations such as race or gender, but emphasizes an identity rooted in being Christ-followers above these secondary identities. The discussion also flows into how these principles apply in practical situations like handling past trauma and in relation to modern societal discourse.

    Our Identity in Christ | Chapter 2

    Scripture in Black and White: Season 3, Episode 2 - Our Identity in Christ
    Episode two of the 'Scripture in Black and White' podcast, Season three, covers the topic of oour identity in Christ. This season we are following along to the outline of Anthony and Michelle's book Identity. Today we cover chapter two of the book where hosts Bobby Harrington, Michelle Eagle, and Anthony explore the struggle of defining oneself by their role, and they stress the importance of finding identity in Christ. They use biblical references and provide examples from their lives to explain the significance of living out a Christ-like identity irrespective of individual roles. They contend that societal expectations or roles should not define who we are, and instead, our actions and behaviors should aspire to reflect Christ irrespective of our roles. The conversation emphasizes that the foundation of identity should be grounded in Christ, and this relationship with Him should ultimately help redefine personal success.

MollyFW ,

Thank you!

I’ve enjoyed and appreciated your contributions to Fearless with Jason Whitlock and followed you to this podcast. The Essentials was excellent. I will remember and share the analogy about the weather report… If you BELIEVE it’s going to rain, you act on that and grab an umbrella or change your shoes. We need to act on our faith and live differently, live for our Lord, follow his teachings.
