This theme is also prominent in “Overcomer”, which was our family’s collective video gift this Christmas. A main character asks this probing question: “Who are you?” He posits that if a person claims to know the Lord, then the first identifier on their list should be, “I am a Christian.”
See, all other identities we may claim–or hope will provide a sense of significance for us–are subject to change. A job, a relationship, an accomplishment, a title…they are all fleeting. The “15 minutes of fame” comes and goes. Everything is really quite fragile, whether we realize it or not.
We have an anchor that keeps the soul
Steadfast and sure while the billows roll,
Fastened to the Rock which cannot move,
Grounded firm and deep in the Savior’s love.
