As long as Christians identify primarily with a worldly identity such as a job role, a denomination, or political persuasion to derive self worth or identity they remain operating in the flesh in the world as opposed to operating in the spirit in God’s Kingdom.

Identity in the world is synonymous with “doing.” A person’s occupation through the eyes of the world and what they “do” is incorrectly substituted instead of with “who” a person is.
