LESSON

Key Scripture: Matthew 16:13-19

The Big Idea:

Many things contribute to who we believe we are: how we grew up, what has been said to us, our life experiences. Whether good are bad, we look for reinforcements to anchor us in this identity. But what if we began to believe and see ourselves as God sees us?


Main Points:

Our identity should not come from…

  1. What we do.

    • Our job does not define us.
    • Our achievements don’t define us.
  2. What we’ve done.

    • Our mistakes should not define us.
    • Don’t stay fixated on the past (“the good ol’ days”).
  3. What people say or have said about us.

    • Even Jesus had mixed reviews.
    • Some people will love you, and others may hate you.


Discussion Questions:

As humans, we constantly look for a place to drop our anchor and say, “This is who I am.” Have you dropped your anchor in the wrong place? As a group, take time to share your own experiences that may have led you to a false belief about yourself.

Read Ephesians 1:3-9. Once you understand that only your Creator can define you, your past and what your co-worker says about you won’t matter. Now that you know what God says about you, how do you think this could impact your life and the lives of those around you?


Challenge:

This week, let’s begin to anchor ourselves in who God says we are. We are loved, chosen, and united with Christ! Isn’t it amazing that we get to have a completely new identity as a child of God? What a beautiful gift God has given us!
