Who Do You Think You Are?
Finding Your True Identity in Christ
By Mark Driscoll

Do you know who you are? Very few of us do, and Driscoll’s book will show us how we can know who we are without seeking too hard.

Driscoll believes that we have a condition of forgetting who we are in Christ and we fill that void with everything else but. This leads us to ask Who am I? This question can be far-reaching and most of us search and search and still can’t find the answer to our question. Most of us are unaware of the source of our identity.

If we are Christians and we really live our faith, we will know that we are made in the image of God. So, our identity is in Him who created us, but not in all the other things that we believe will give our live meaning and identity. This is a meaning that can’t be quenched by anyone or any hardship.

One way to construct your identity in Jesus is through scripture. Another way is by being a saint. A saint is an average person who loves Jesus who is remorseful, powerful, and humble. Normal people could be saints. All we have to do is to love God and walk in His ways in the world.

We live in an ever increasing world where everyone seems to act as if they are more important and what they are dong is more significant than anyone else. Technology has only made things worse. We all participate in our culture of rudeness too. If we live a Christian life seeped in the love of God, that won’t be the case any longer.

Everyone also longs to be loved. We are usually only loved by a handful of people in our life. Jesus loves us totally and completely. This is the bedrock of our faith if we truly live our faith. So, we don’t have to look for love in all the wrong places. All we have to do is turn to God, and we will be loved at all times.

So, finding our identity is easy if we turn to God and make Him he center of our live. Not only will our life be happy and peaceful, but we will truly know who we are. Thank you so much Mark Driscoll for writing such a wonderful book! I will be reading and rereading it often!
