What I'm Reading Today
I have been listening to Ephesians on my iPod along with podcasts of sermons and Steve Brown Etc, a Christian talk show. Two weeks ago, they hosted Mark Driscoll, pastor of Mars Hill Church, and he discussed his new book Who Do You Think You Are?. I can't say that I learned anything "new" in the discussion but I was intrigued and excited. In my daily life I identify myself with what I do- my job, my friends, my money (or lack thereof!) But the truest part of me- my true identity- is that I am "in Christ". I am not my sin. I am not the sum of my failures. I am a loved child of God- redeemed, completely forgiven and free- and this is
the essence of the Gospel. I am looking forward to reading this book tomorrow and preaching the Gospel to myself. Want to join me? I'll be reading Ephesians and give some thoughts next Wednesday. Until then..
