Podcast #106: “Who I Am” by Blanca

Discovering New Details in 1 Samuel 16

The topic of identity is blazing across headlines daily these days. It’s always been an issue. How do we define who we are? Do we identify with this group or that group? Are we defined by what we do or how much we make? As Christians we need to get a grip on this very important topic. Blanca’s song, “Who I Am” brings us to our senses and reminds us that we need to have our identity in the One Who made us. It matters more Whose we are than who we are. This week we examine a potential identity crisis in the life of David.

We do well to learn as much as we can from the very human, very flawed people of God as revealed in Scripture.
