In Altar Ego: Becoming Who God Says You Are, author Craig Groeschel addresses the reality of living up, or maybe better said, living down to the expectations and labels that others have placed over you.
If you are stuck in the cycle of trying to please others who can never be pleased, this book is for you. If you are new to faith in Christ and asking questions of practical relevance and what to do next, this book is for you. If you are stuck in life and you feel like every day is the same ole, same ole, this book is for you.
The three main sections are: “Sacrificing Your False Self for Your Sacred Identity in Christ,” “Sacrificing Cultural Relativity for Eternal Values,” and “Sacrificing Self-Justification for Passionate Obedience.”
The first section focuses the reader on accepting that you are God’s ambassador. The second section focuses the reader on living a life that reflects God’s values. And the third section focuses the reader on being bold in their true identity.
Early in the book the reader is assured that there is no sin that God cannot forgive, no habit that His power can not break, and no life that He doesn’t have a plan for.
You have a new name in Christ, for if any man be in Christ he is a New creation; old things have passed away and the new has come. The new will come if you put the old on the altar. The new will come if you add to your faith works by doing what God says. The new will come if you are bold and very courageous, loud and proud that God has altared your ego.
