You can try to live up to others’ expectations. You can try to please everyone and manage your image. But that carefully constructed identity often collapses when life falls apart. Pastor Cary Schmidt says your true identity is not one you achieve but one you receive. And the secret is to "stop trying." Find out what he means on Chris Fabry Live.
Cary Schmidt serves as the Senior Pastor of Emmanuel Baptist Church in Newington, Conn.
