Building on the Rock explores the importance of finding our identity in Christ.
In this short but powerful book, Peter Maiden(former International leader for OM) asks a number of questions. How should we define our identity, as Christians? And how do we actually define ourselves, usually?
So many Christians struggle because they find their identity and self-worth in things which are ultimately unworthy and utterly unstable. For example, leadership positions, professions and achievements. In fact, even family roles change and mutate.
As the people of God our identity is not to be found in our achievements, appearance, career or even our family. Instead, our place in Christ is eternal and unshakeable. We are sons and daughters of God welcomed into his family through grace. We should thereby relax in the security and certainty of God’s family.
