Overview

The New You is a six week devotional through which Christians are able to discover new power and new peace by loking at themselves in the light of Christ who dwells in them. Christians often build their identity and value in the same way non-Christians do. They base it on possessions and accomplishments. They are often discouraged and depressed, looking at their sins and failures. They fail to see the infinite, unlimited power available to them through the indwelling presence of Christ. They do not rejoice in the fact that they are the residences of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. DeVries also points out in this book that when Christians lack the peace of knowing who they are in Christ, they also lack the power and the vision to tackle life's challenges and opportunities. The author uses several powerful metaphors to help the reader develop a true Biblical self-image of Christians, one of which, is the comparison between the White House and the house-museum at Mt. Vernon. DeVries was aided in the writing of this book by an "editorial committee" made up of two transformed ex-convicts and a woman who was horribly abused as a child. The book is primarily designed for family or private devotions. It can also be used as an excellent six-week small group study.After each devotion there are memory verses and a set of discussion questions called "Learn it" and "Do it".

Read an Excerpt

"One of the most important offices in the world is the office of the president of the United States. . .Can you imagine visiting this office? Can you imagine that the president of the United States would actually invite you to come, perhaps monthly or weekly, to listen to your views and your requests? Every one of us would have a profound new sense of importance! We would have a new sense of purpose. Now imagine something more strange. Imagine that the president did not invite you to his office, but rather invited himself to your house. Imagine that he asked you if he could come to your house and visit you. That's so far-fetched it is difficult to even think of. But there is Someone knocking on your door. Every day when you get up that Someone knocks. Have you ever wondered Who that Person is? It is Someone far more important than any person on earth. It is Jesus Christ. One of the reasons we don't know "who we are" is because we spend so little time thinking about Who He is!"
