Author: Sharon Simmonds, Foreword: Steve A. Brown
Being anchored in our identity in Christ is meant for all Jesus-followers and especially critical for Christian leaders. Knowing this need, Arrow Leadership has produced a devotional book to help you live, relate and serve from the unshakeable foundation of God’s truth about who you are in Christ – and to assist you as you lead and develop others.
Who Am I? is a rich, biblically grounded, practical resource that focuses on 22 identity-in-Christ statements. Each devotional focuses on one statement and invites the reader to interact by reading and meditating on God’s Word, considering reflection questions, and using space provided to journal, sketch and pray. It can be used personally or collectively as a simple discipleship tool.
Who Am I? is an excellent gift for people on your leadership, ministry or work team and appropriate for young people and adults of all ages.
