We are constantly on the lookout for what makes us, us. But what if we’ve been looking to answer the wrong question? What if answering who God is will ultimately lead us to know who we are meant to be?

Over the course of the next four days, we are asking ourselves perhaps the biggest question there is: Who is God? Sadie Robertson Huff will lead us to discover how what He says about who he is informs who we are and how that changes everything.

Who Are You Really?

We are a self-obsessed people. We are not talking about any specific people group or community. We mean us: all of us. We are obsessed with who we are. 

We find ourselves in an enneagram number, a Meyers-Briggs result, a social media comment, a well-meaning but poorly received comment. We are constantly on the lookout for what makes us, us. 

But what if we’ve been looking to answer the wrong question? What if answering who God is will ultimately lead us to know who we are meant to be?

Over the course of the next four days, we are asking ourselves perhaps the biggest question there is: Who is God? Sadie Robertson Huff will lead us to discover how what He says about who he is informs who we are and how that changes everything.

Summary

If we were to ask, “How do you identify yourself?” How would you answer?

Maybe you would say your workplace or school, or your friend group or church. Or maybe you fall back on your interests, the hobbies that unite you with others. Or the thing about you that you wish you could change.  Or maybe if we pose that question, you would respond with holy confidence, proclaiming that you know who you are and who you are in Christ. Either way, our identity is no light work.

As we look at what defines us, we find that what makes us who we are is not what we do or where we go. Rather, what makes us who we are is who God is. 

We don’t need more tests, more activity, more knowledge of self. We need something bigger. We need to ask a different question.

What's Next?

Yesterday, we took some time to ask, “Who am I?” and uncovered that what we might actually need is to ask a different question. Today, we are looking to a key passage of scripture to uncover that question.

Summary

Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” And they said, “Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it
Matthew 16:13-20

When Peter recognized who Jesus was, Jesus, in return, told Peter who he was. Take a moment to consider the weight of that exchange. In an instant, Peter knew who He was because He first recognized who Christ was.

Who is God to you?

For Peter, knowing who God is and what God said to be true not only changed everything about him but it gave him a mission to build the church. In knowing Him, we can know ourselves, and we can discover what He has called us to do.

You can think of it like this: Whatever is on the throne of your life will tell you who you are and what you are called to do.

What's Next?

Like Peter, Jesus wants to tell you who you really are. Take some time in the scriptures and ask, “Who does God say I am?”

Over the course of the past two days, we have asked and answered, “Who are you?” and “Who is God?”

Those two questions have laid a careful foundation to help us discern who we really are in light of who God is. Now, it’s time to turn the page and ask another question: how do you know what is true about you?

Summary

Like the mother of the groom, what you believe may not feel natural, but it is extremely biblical.

It is not natural to turn the other cheek, but it is biblical. See Matthew 5:38-40.
It is not natural to want to resist temptation, but it is biblical. See Romans 6:12

In our own lives, there may be choices or feelings on the surface that feel natural. But when we are confronted with them, it is essential that we take the time to peel back the layers and ask: is this biblical?

When it comes to our identity, it may feel easy to identify ourselves with the markers of culture. But truth trumps feelings. It may be legitimate to feel the way you do, but more legitimate than those feelings is the truth of who God says you really are.

Pay attention to the wording here. We are not talking about your truth or my truth. We are talking about the truth.

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. John 8:32

When Jesus says this to the scribes and Pharisees sitting with him at the Mount of Olives, He is not offering an empty platitude. He was introducing himself. Jesus is truth, and he has the power to save us, to set us free from sin and death, and to break the shackles of shame over our lives. He is the way, the truth, and the life, and He is leading us in the way we should go. He tells us who we are.

Jesus is truth.

Today, we can trust God. He created us. We don’t need to stand on the street corner of culture and ask for our identity; it’s already sealed in Christ, and it’s solid truth.

What's Next?

What is a cultural “truth” you have been believing about who you are? Now take a moment, open the scripture, and ask: what is actually true about me? Scripture is living, breathing, and active. It is the truth of God, and we can turn to it confidently. Take some time today to find some scriptural truths about who you are in Christ. Write them down and spend time this week remembering the truth about you.

Let’s start our last day together with an introduction. Grab your journal or open your notes app and fill in the blanks with us.

Hi, my name is ________. I used to think I was ______________ and defined by ___________, but in Christ, I know that I am ____________, and I know God is ________________.

You are not forgotten, forsaken, or passed over. You are not defined by your school, family, or past. In Christ, you are loved, redeemed, chosen, and have found God to be a loving Father, a faithful friend, forever seated on His throne.

We hope you can feel the labels shaking off as we conclude our time together. Let’s look to scripture together one last time and discover who we really are and who He has always been.

Summary

But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?” And God said, “I will be with you. And this will be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain.”  Moses said to God, “Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ Then what shall I tell them?” God said to Moses, “I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I am has sent me to you.  Exodus 3:11-14

In Exodus 3, we encounter Moses. After running away from Egypt, he is tending his flock on a mountain when God appears to him in a burning bush. God tells Moses that he is going to return to Egypt and deliver God’s people from oppression, but Moses was afraid. He quarrels with God, chalking up his inability to go to his past and his weaknesses. We see God’s response in the scripture above.

God doesn’t list out what is true about Moses in this moment. Rather, God reminds Moses of who He is. We see Moses go on to lead God’s people out of Egypt and oppression, confident that the God who called Him is the God who would carry Him. Hold hands with this truth in our final moments together. If you have placed your faith in Jesus, He lives in you and confidently calls you to make His glory known to the world around you.

When we see the Father, we see what we are really made of and what we are called to do.

Who do you think you are? A loved son and daughter of the most High God.
Who is He? Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God. (Matthew 16:16)
Who is Truth? Jesus, and knowing Him will set you free. (John 8:32)

Who you really are is found in who He has always been.

What's Next?

Take a moment to relisten as Sadie lists out the attributes of who God is.
