Craig Groeschel’s book, Altar Ego: Becoming Who God Says You Are, is an easy read but filled with inspiring and directive insight in God’s plan for each Christian’s life and identity.

Groeschel makes the case of putting one’s life on God’s altar (note the title) and allowing God through Jesus to develop and lead to who God had planned… “meant to be” for one’s life.

The author makes the case with illustrations of hearing God’s “call” and obeying and being bold in Christ – “being a servant of Christ.” This demands a strong faith “that will not waver.”

Many everyday situations are identified and challenged to follow God’s directives in patience, integrity, honour, gratitude (so important!) and having a bold (in Christ) approach, in prayers and deeds.

When you read this book, I suggest to have a pen and paper/journal handy as there is much to “ponder” and meditate.
