Psychologists will tell us that many people today suffer from an identity crisis. Maybe the best way to avoid this is to not get attached to our identity.
Enoch was a man who was close to God. In fact, we are told that “Enoch walked with God and he was no more, for God took him.” That’s about all we know about old brother Enoch. He walked with God and he was no more. His identity was wrapped up in God.
Jesus said those who try to find their lives will lose their lives, whereas those who lose their lives will find their lives. Another spiritual paradox, but one that will go a long way toward curing my identity crisis.
