Accountable to God: Day 49

Today’s Text: Jeremiah 9:23-24
Today’s Key Thought:  Find your identity in knowing God!
So if God commands us not to find our identity in what we can do, what we know, and what we have, what should we glory in?
Hopefully you know by now, and I hope that this week’s verse really has impacted the way you think about yourself.  Here’s the verse:
“But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the Lord.”
We are to find our glory, our identity, our self-worth not in what we know, do, or have, but rather in our relationship with God.
Now like we did yesterday, without reading below, list out why it would be wise for us to find our glory in knowing God.
Here are some I thought of:
1.  God’s love for us is unchanging.  2.  Even though what we do, know, and have is fleeting, we will have relationship with God forever.  3. It is by having a relationship with God that we can have, do, and know the right things that He would have for us.  4.  It is by having a relationship with God that we will spend eternity in heaven.
Can you honestly say that your primary identity, glory, and self-worth is found in your relationship with God?
