Building on the Rock (Paperback)

Peter Maiden

-  

How should we define our identity, as Christians? And how do we actually define ourselves, usually? In this short but powerful book, Peter Maiden (former International leader for OM) shows how we must find our identity in Christ if we are to have any stability. So many Christians struggle because they find their identity and self worth in things which are ultimately unworthy and utterly unstable. Or they find it in fleeting and vulnerable places - leadership positions, professions and achievements. Even family roles change, and mutate. As the people of God our identity is not to be found in our achievements, appearance, career or even our family. But our place in Christ is eternal, unshakeable. We are sons and daughters of God welcomed into his family through grace, which has been sealed by an eternal covenant. Anything less than this can only lead to disappointment, disillusionment, legalism and even the abuse of others, as we relentlessly seek to prove and assert ourselves rather than relaxing in the security and certainty of family.
