Our passion for “reinventing ourselves” is driven by a void in our hearts, a nagging sense of guilt and condemnation that we cannot quite identify or explain. Like the fig leaves that Adam and Eve designed to cover their sense of shame after the fall, we search frantically for moral, therapeutic, pragmatic, cosmetic, spiritual and religious ways of making ourselves more presentable and acceptable. Yet it is not until God strips us of our own fig leaves and covers us with his own garments of righteousness in Christ that we find acceptance with God and therefore the source of a stable identity that can evoke the confidence and faith; “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me” (Galatians 2:20). Everything else is cosmetic; it does not really address the source of our anxieties, stress, depression and pride, as the void and darkness on earth in Genesis 1:2 was solved by the Light, your void can only be solved by repentance towards God and faith towards the finished redemption work of Jesus Christ!
