What defines you?

When you are talking with other Christians, what defines you?

Is it where, when and how you "go to church"?

Is it the creed or confession you subscribe to?

Is it the famous preachers and sermonizers you listen to?

Is it how you educate your kids?

Is it your choice for President in 2012?


Is it how you love the Lord your God? How you love others? How you serve them?

I admit that the first list has been what defines me for a long time. I think that is true for a lot of us and it is something that poisons our relationship with other Christians and damages our witness to the world. We do a pretty poor job loving and serving all of our brothers and sisters but if we focus on that, I think that first list will become less and less important to us.
