Who Do You Think You Are? By: Mark Driscoll
Yesterday was Kylar's first day of preschool. I'm going to admit it was a little hard to let my sweet baby girl go and be a big kid. It was fun to pick her up and listen to her talk about all her new friends and the activities she did. Do you have any kids and if you do, do you have any first day of school stories?
Who Do You Think You Are by Mark Driscoll takes you through certain questions to help you define who you are as a Christian. It's a book that will bring up questions to think about your past, present, and future. It will take you through the scripture to see how to truly be like Christ.
I think this book would be a great starter book for new Christians. Not only does it deal with struggling with past sins, but it helps you see what could possibly be holding you back from having a deeper relationship with Christ. Now for you Christians who have been one for a while, don't think that this book wouldn't be for you either. It really is a good reminder of who Christ is, and what we are to be too. This isn't a fluffy book, it's chalk full of in depth research and content, but don't let it scare you :) Just dive in and take it chapter by chapter, you dear readers will not regret it!
*This book was given to me via Booksneeze in hopes of my honest opinion and I honestly gave it.
Romans 8:1-2 NKJV
There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.
There is a difference between conviction and condemnation and as Mark Driscoll says they're stark. Conviction is from God, condemnation is from Satan. Conviction leads to life, condemnation leads to despair. Conviction ends in joy, condemnation ends in sorrow. So when you do something that the Holy Spirit convicts you of, don't allow Satan to condemn you.
