I Am His: Understanding Your Identity Through Jesus Christ
Authors Mark D. Lyman and Sarah L. Lyman
As human beings, we often struggle to discover our own identity. The world tries to box us in with labels, but the Lord can simplify and illuminate our earthly identity by providing eternal perspective. Prophets like Moses, Isaiah and Paul clearly taught our divine identity and clarified our celestial destiny. Isaiah wrote, "Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine" (Isaiah 43:1).
President Russell M. Nelson recently shared his thoughts regarding our identity: "I believe that if the Lord were speaking to you directly, the first thing He would make sure you understand is your true identity. My dear friends, you are literally spirit children of God." Through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, we are "born again" (John, 3:3) and "begotten" of Him (Doctrine and Covenants 76:24).
In I Am His, father and daughter, Mark and Sarah Lyman, help us to discover how Jesus Christ and His atonement reaffirm our original and superlative identity and the knowledge that WE ARE HIS.
