Dangerous Good

The following is an excerpt from the book “Dangerous Good” by Kenny Luck. I thought I would share.

“The question of identity is issue number one to God because whatever commands your identity will, by default, command your energy–either toward or away from God’s dangerous good agenda for your life. Every core identity outside of our core identity in Christ saps a man’s energy. A materialist at his core dedicates his energy to making bank and accumulating stuff. A hedonist at his core puts all his time, thoughts, and dollars into self-gratifying pursuits. A narcissist at his core spends massive amounts of his energy on elevating his own visibility, at whatever human or financial cost. All the identities the world has to offer make gods out of things that are not gods, and these non-gods creep into the lives of God’s sons, polluting their identity and diluting their energy for God.”
