Saying the Jesus Prayer is not about your personal relationship with Christ. It’s about your becoming part of the Body of Christ.
We need not be defined by the work we do; our identity is not dependent on our successes and failures. It is not your doing that will save you, it is the foundational identity of who you are as one who is claimed by God.
We often assume false identities by the names, descriptions, and comments of others. These false identities are defined as our Photo ID.
