Pastor Mark Driscoll answers the one question you need to ask: Who am I in Christ?
Being a Christian can be like driving in a foreign city. You try living on the straight and narrow but instead take a wrong turn onto the wide avenue of sin and temptation. In the process, you become discouraged and condemned, limping along in your faithor giving up altogether.
But this isnt the real Christian life. You can make a U-turn.
Pastor Mark Driscoll knows that underlying our struggles in life is the issue of our identity. "The fundamental problem we have in this world," he says, "is that we dont understand who we truly arechildren of God made in his imageand define ourselves by any number of things other than Jesus. Only by knowing our false identity apart from Christ in comparison to our true identity in him can we finally deal with and overcome the issues in our lives."
Who are you in Christ? Among other things:
- You are a saint
- You are blessed
- You are saved
- You are afflicted
- You are heard
You arent whats been done to you but what Jesus has done for you. You arent what you do but what Jesus has done. What you do doesnt determine who you are. Rather, who you are in Christ determines what you do. These are fundamental truths that Pastor Mark explores in depth throughout Who Do You Think You Are? Finding Your True Identity in Christ.
