Identity

Tullian Tchividjian

“A Christian’s deepest desire is now for God first, not sin. In fact, each time a Christian sins, he’s momentarily suffering from an identity crisis. When a Christian yields to temptation, he’s living contrary to who he really is; he’s being inconsistent with who he has been remade to be. He’s being deceived by the flesh to think that sin, not God, is what he wants most. But even in the most intense moments of temptation, a Christian desires God more deeply than sin.”

Tullian Tchividjian, from Unfashionable: Making a Difference in the World By Being Different, pgs. 141-142
