The only way to really be “woke,” is to wake up to who we really are. First, by being spiritually reborn we remember who we really are: Created in God’s image, created to reflect him. And as we spend more time in the word, soaking on the truth of who we really are, we become a clearer reflection of his image. Then, the only way to recover who we really are is for everything we think we are to be stripped away. Grand Rapids pastor Rod VanSolkema, tells the powerful story of Naaman, a proud man with leprosy, who surrendered everything he thought he was to find out who he really was—A loved child of the living God. And finally Jack Haveman, our station manager tells his own story of running from God, finding his identity in performance, being pursued by Jesus when he was dead in sin, then being raised to life with a new identity: Alive to God!
