~ Inspired by the Kendrick brothers? OVERCOMER movie and written by the #1 New York Times best-selling author team, Alex and Stephen Kendrick, comes an exciting new Bible study resource about discovering your God-given identity and embracing the wonder of who you were created to be. This Bible study book is great for adult group studies.
When you introduce yourself to someone for the first time, you have an opportunity to define yourself. You disclose your name, profession, and interests. These factors help our culture define us, but are those answers enough? People are struggling in ten thousand ways because of identity issues. They can't help but ask, who am I? and why do I matter? Can our culture really provide meaningful answers to those questions, or do we need something deeper and more significant?
Before asking, who am I? we need to be able to answer, who is God? If we can't answer the first question, we will never answer the second. The problem with our search for identity is that we are looking in all the wrong places. Scripture teaches that we are all made in the image of God. We do not define ourselves - the Creator does. Once those answers are clear, we can move forward and discover all God has called us to be.
