A few years ago I began to notice a pattern in my life. Namely that whenever I am getting to know someone new I will offer to drive us somewhere together—maybe to grab lunch or go run an errand, and the person will say Yes. The first time. That is also the last time.
The second time we go somewhere together, I’ll offer to drive and they’ll say, “No, no, no, I’ll drive.” I was fine with it, until I began to notice the pattern.

This week, I’m giving away THREE copies of my friend, Craig Groeschel‘s, new book, Altar Ego: Becoming Who God Says You Are. Craig is the founder and leading pastor of LifeChurch.tv–which has 15 campuses in five different states and is considered the second largest church in the country. Craig, his wife, and their six kiddos live in Edmond, Oklahoma.
Altar Ego explores the idea that you are NOT who you think you are. Encouraging us all to evaluate our identity, lay it down on the altar, and sacrifice it. Give it to God. Offer it up.
Because you are who GOD says you are. And until you’ve sacrificed your broken concept of your identity, you won’t become who you are meant to be. When we place our false labels and self-deception on the altar of God’s truth, we discover who we really are as his sons and daughters. Instead of an outward-driven, approval-based ego, we learn to live with an ‘altar’ ego, God’s vision of who we are becoming.Altar Ego reveals who God says you are, and then calls you to live up to it.
