Jamie & Donna Winship

Our True Identity

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How to experience God, confession, faith, fear, freedom, our true identity, and cruciform, others-focused, self-emptying unconditional love barely scratches the surface of this packed conversation on the goodness of God. Jamie and Donna Winship share how we can discover our true identity through a relationship with God and each other.

QUOTES

“So, we lose the great commandment and pick up the great commission, we’re exchanging love for conflict.” Jamie

“Most people aren’t even aware that they are living separate from who they really are.” Donna

“Your true identity is the essence of who you are at your core and it’s something to be discovered through your lifetime and worked out in relationship. You cannot set apart your identity from relationship with God and relationship with other people.” Donna

“I think it’s important to note that your identity is not your gender, not your sexual preference, not your job, not your political party, not your religion…” Donna

“You can study business ethics all day long but if you’re in a scarcity model its always gonna come up to not enough.” Jamie

“You’re in a world that every day says, “there’s not enough.” It’s the lie that we live in. But there is an alternative world view.” Jamie

“You can’t intellectually have faith. Faith comes from experience and experiential relationship.” Donna

“All identities we discover about ourselves are identities of Jesus in one form or another.” Donna

    Beautiful!!! Love (1 Cor. 13, Gal. 5) is not about measuring behavior but measuring the measurelessness of God!
