Identity is your distinguishing characteristic.
Culture and heritage establishes your identity.
Culture is how you glorify your God and heritage is what has been passed down by belief and or bloodline. When you have removed what hinders you from seeing who you are and why you are, you can identify what is true. Your persisting entity is how you are known or what you continue in firmly is what makes you distinct. To stay the course in spite of difficulty or failure is what defines your existence or defines your IDENTITY.
Let go of what this world has presented as identity and accept the characteristics by which you will definitively be known as…accept the truth of who God says that you are.
