I.D. - Who Am I in Christ?
I think everyone has wondered from time to time about their place here on earth - "Who am I?" and "What am I doing here?" Many times we measure ourselves using the world's standards, which can lead to a poor self-image and other negative effects. Natalie Dorso has written this thorough study based on realizations in her own life. She had spent her teen years trying to answer life questions using the world's guidelines, forgetting that the important thing for her, and all of us, is who we are in Christ. This study is divided into three important areas: Who am I in Christ in Relation to Sin? Who am I in Christ in Relation to God? Who am I in Relation to Other People? Throughout the study, readers are asked to read passages of scripture (KJV), look at its meaning, and then do some thinking and writing. This book is more than just a read through; it offers practical study and application for the reader's life and situation. Sections titled "Put Off," "Renew Your Mind," and "Put On" are your opportunity to answer questions and write out your thoughts - based on Ephesians 4:22-24. "Put Off" is an opportunity to confess and get rid of your sin, ask forgiveness of others (if needed), and cut it out of your life. "Renew Your Mind" is based in God's Word - it is here that you memorize and meditate. The third section, "Put On," is your opportunity to swap out bad behavior for good and be held accountable. For students in junior high and high school, this study might be very helpful as they strive to find where they fit and who they are" in Christ! 176 pgs, pb. ~ Donna
I.D. Who Am I in Christ? by Natalie Durso is a Bible study for teen girls. The study is ideal for individuals, youth groups, or camp groups. While reading through an old diary, Natalie noticed she had spent a lot of her teen years trying to figure out how she fit in. After a personal search to learn how God sees her, she realized, I am defined by Christ and what He has done for me. I need to be reminded every day that without Christ, I am nothing.
