or friend of someone else) or our accomplishments (our title, position, education, or accolades). When our identity is wrapped up in these external things, we inevitably--and exhaustingly!--strive to prove ourselves worthy of love, attention, or affirmation.
But God never meant for us to focus on whether we are "enough," whether we measure up. He made us--every piece of us--to be just as he is. Jerusha Clark discovered this while exploring the seven powerful "I am" statements of Jesus recorded in the Gospel of John. Now she invites you to join her in embracing the life and truth of these words, relishing the freedom of an identity fixed on Christ alone while leaving behind fear, bitterness, busyness, and toxic thoughts that steal our joy and limit our power.
Reviewer: Sabrina Wade
Jerusha Clark, you definitely hit me with a lot of information to digest. While a bit overwhelming at first, the questions at the end of each chapter helped to condense it all. Allowing me to evaluate myself and dispel the lies I believed versus what the Good Lord has been saying from the beginning of time.
A great book for small groups. Well written so that a few chapters can be focused on instead of the entire book. Full of scripture references for us stick to the Bible.
I would absolutely recommend taking your time to read through each chapter. Reading through it like a novel will result in information overload and you will miss key information. (Guilty!).
