Identity theaft isn’t new, it is the oldest sin in the world (and you thought it was prostitution). In Genesis we are taught that man is created in the image of God, but that image (our identity) was stolen by the serpent when he deceived Eve in the garden. The cost to mankind has been incalculable. Greed, jealousy, anger, murder, idolatry, pride, slander, parental dissobedience, rape, spousal abuse… and on it goes. The world was plunged into a debt it could never recover from.
God, however, has loved us so much, that he dealt with the fraud and made a repayment plan that placed the cost on himself. Our identity is now in Christ, and as we trust in Him we are being conformed to his image daily. Take that, identity theif! I’m just saying.
