Identity

Who You Are in Christ

Everyone searches for a clear identity and craves to be known for something. Some find identity in their career, working overtime to do more than just pay the bills, but to stroke the ego and experience the feelings thatgo along with high-profile accomplishments.

Others define themselves in relationships, sometimes enduring unhealthy ones because, "Hey, it's better than being alone." Possessions can be identifiers. The new car becomes an expression of self; he likes the way other people look at his ride in traffic.

While careers, relationships, possessions, and other things are important aspects of our daily lives, they do not last forever. It is God who breathes purpose and meaning into the details of our lives, and when we seek our identity in places other than Christ, we find ourselves empty.

Identity, by bestselling author Eric Geiger (Simple Church, Designed to Lead, Creature of the Word) presents an exciting choice: to bounce back and forth between fleeting earthly fulfillments or to embrace God's invitation to lose our lives and find our identity in Him.

Come discover who you really are in Christ.

Identity, eBook

In Nazi concentration camps, the will of Jewish prisoners was broken by stripping away their personal identification and giving them just a number rather than a name. Satan operates the same way, always trying to undo the faith of believers by twisting the reality of who they are as followers of Christ.

Identity by young pastor Eric Geiger (coauthor of the multi-awarded national bestseller Simple Church) helps Christians clearly understand who they really are as defined by various Scriptures and unpacks the practical response that goes along with each wonderfully dramatic, empowering, and liberating truth.

Readers will consider like never before the Bible’s descriptions of God followers as priests, brides, servants, friends, aliens, and ambassadors. Both challenged and encouraged, they will discover their deepest self and greatest purpose in Identity.
