Keller & identity

Tim Keller’s Every Good Endeavour is a book which details just how the gospel is able to transform our work lives. Through the gospel we no longer need to work for an identity (which will always leave us insecure) but from an identity, given to us in the fullness of Jesus Christ. Accepted by God, chosen and dearly loved, adopted as his children, our motives for work are transformed.

Keller writes it this way;-

The truth will change your identity. It will convince you of your real, inestimable value. And ironically, when you see how much you are loved, your work will become far less selfish. Suddenly all the other things in your work life – your influence, your resume,and the benefits they bring you – become just things. You can risk them, spend them, and even lose them. You are free.
