Joe's Latest from OSV: Who Am I, Lord? Finding Your Identity in Christ

Who Am I, Lord? Finding Your Identity in Christ

The question "Who am I?" is on the minds and hearts of people of all ages. And for good reason: The answer is important! Who we are - or who we think we are - drives our actions and shapes our relationships.

While we are asking the right questions about identity, the world is busy feeding us the wrong answers: We are our political party, job title, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity - and the list goes on. But until we know why we were created, by whom, and for what purpose, we can never be truly satisfied.

In Who Am I, Lord?, author and speaker Joe Heschmeyer tackles the question of identity by asking two even more important questions:

  1. Who is Jesus?
  2. Who does he say you are?

Only when we understand who Christ really is can he show us who we are. Our identity in Christ opens us to the promises he has made us and leads us to the freedom to be who we were created to be.

Who Am I, Lord? will answer the question of your identity in a way that will transform your life.
