We need to understand how God intersects with our life. More specifically, how the gospel of Jesus Christ transforms our identity and our self-worth.   It’s time we dumped the idea of self-esteem for a Biblical perspective.

Unfortunately, sometimes those in God’s family think that to live a life of truly honoring God, it must be self-sacrificial – constantly punishing ourselves for faults and frailties – that, if somehow we don’t view ourselves as.

    what god’s word says about self-esteem: Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”. Self-image is what we believe comes from others and that can lead to arrogance. Our self-esteem is our “true Self” that is eternally connect with God or Greater Reality. Self-esteem comes from within and is not reliant on what anyone outside ourselves thinks or does. Does that make sense?
