Here are the participants guides for Mark Driscoll's DVD based group study, 'Who Do You Think You Are?' Based on the book of Ephesians this study shows everything that goes wrong with the Christian comes down to a simple identity crisis - do we belong to the world, or do we belong to Christ.
16 weeks of study that can be divided into two 8-week sessions
Studies especially designed for students and women
Inspiring ideas for putting what you've learned into practice
Marks' study shows how many of the things we give ourselves to - including duty, items, suffering and longings divert us from who God to created us to be and become 'idols of false identity'.
What we need to do, says the study and accompanying book, is to understand what God intended us to be to know the identity he gave us from the beginning. We were made to be the image of God, therefore our identity is fundamentally joined to who God is. So first of all, we need to know who God is that means we have to live in relationship with him.
This understanding allows you to live with hope and joy, but not just rooted in platitudes and pithy statements but rooted in the finished work and in the unfailing, unending, unequal love of Jesus Christ. And I want to help you answer that question: 'Who do you think you are?'
If being a Christian seems like driving in a foreign city - where the straight and narrow keeps turning into a cul-de-sac of sin and temptation, don't be discouraged or fell condemned to giving up altogether; you can make a U-turn.
Drawing on nearly two decades of pastoring, Mark Driscoll knows that underlying our struggles in life is the issue of our identity. The fundamental problem we have in this world, he says, is that we dont understand who we truly arechildren of God made in his imageand define ourselves by any number of things other than Jesus.
Who are you in Christ? Among other things: You are a saint; You are blessed; You are saved; You are afflicted; You are heard. These are a few of the fundamental truths that Pastor Mark explores in the Who Do You Think You Are DVD-Based Study.
