We were made to imitate. We will either copy the world around us and become a cheap knock off, or imitate the one who made us and become secure in our identity in Him. Paul calls us to imitate him as he imitates Christ, by allowing Him to transform us from the inside out, and giving us an identity that is secure even through the hardest of challenges.
A plastic person is materialistic, insincere, cheap, or fake. Someone who looks attractive, yet lacks any sort of depth. We are seeing a mental health decline at the same time as self is being elevated. The world is declaring ‘I want to be recognised’, but modern identities take no scrutiny and like plastic they snap under any pressure.
This is part 3 in our September series called ‘Plastic’ brought to you by Justyn Towler.
