Who Do You Think You Are?

If you’re like most people, your initial response to that question is probably your job title. After that, you may list off your age, how many kids you have, or perhaps even your hobbies. Those things may all be true about you, but they don’t define you. In order to discover the truth about who you really are, you need to ask the One who created you.

52 Amazing Things CoverWho Does God Say You Are?

As far as God is concerned, there are only two possible identities for every man, woman, and child alive today. You are either “In Adam,” or you are “In Christ.” You must be one or the other—you cannot be both. The most important thing to understand in regards to your identity—and ultimately in your battle against temptation—is knowing and understanding which camp you belong to.

If you have put your hope in Jesus, you are now “In Christ,” and nothing can ever change that.

But what does it actually mean to be “In-Christ?”

My new book, 52 Amazing Things That Became True of You the Moment You Trusted Christ, unpacks 52 of these passages to help you understand more fully who God says you are, and what these truths mean for you personally—all of which can be deeply transformational.
