This sermon by Tim Keller literally changed my brain forever.
The problem with modern culture is that when I prescribe my own self-worth, I then have to go achieve it. It’s enslaving, exhausting, and crushing.
Jesus’s way of identity is entirely different-I receive a stable sense of self-worth THEN I am free to obey the rules. I can be humble and bold all at the same time.
Q: What values have I prescribed as necessary to my self-worth and acceptance?
