Identity- Week 2- I Am Chosen
Identity. It influences every area of your life. It dictates what you do. If you see your identity as somebody worthless, you will act in a worthless manner. If you see yourself as smart, you act smart (or at least as a smart aleck). If you identify as an idiot, you'll act accordingly. But who does God say that I am? When you spend some time in the Scriptures, you will begin to unpack the identity that Christ desires for you and the Holy Spirit empowers you to become. In a new series that launches this Sunday, we will discover our identity in Christ and who that empowers us to become. Our identity matters. Discover a new way of seeing yourself as we launch our new series Identity: Who You Are Defines What You Do!

Identity influences every area of your life. It dictates what you do.
As we search the Scriptures for an answer to this question, you begin to see a portrait that often looks entirely unlike how I see myself.
“The whole of Jesus’ teaching is geared to confront and rearrange a person’s thinking about identity.”
- Kyle Snodgrass
Jesus wants you to discover your true identity and allow that to impact every area of your life.
“Blessed be God, the Father of our Lord Jesus the Anointed One, who grants us every spiritual blessing in these heavenly realms where we live in the Anointed—not because of anything we have done, but because of what He has done for us. God chose us to be in a relationship with Him even before He laid out plans for this world; He wanted us to live holy lives characterized by love, free from sin, and blameless before Him. He destined us to be adopted as His children through the covenant Jesus the Anointed inaugurated in His sacrificial life. This was His pleasure and His will for us.”
- Ephesians 1:3-5 (The Voice Bible)
“When he found a pearl more beautiful and valuable than any jewel he had ever seen, the jeweler sold all he had and bought that pearl, his pearl of great price.” - Matthew 13:45 (The Voice Bible)
You are God’s chosen.
You are highly valued.
You are deeply loved.
“I don’t call you servants any longer; servants don’t know what the master is doing, but I have told you everything the Father has said to Me. I call you friends. You did not choose Me. I chose you, and I orchestrated all of this so that you would be sent out and bear great and perpetual fruit.” - John 15:15-16 (The Voice Bible)
“If the Father who sent Me does not draw you, then there’s no way you can come to Me.” - John 6:44 (The Voice Bible)
“Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.”
- Hebrews 12:2a (NIV)
Jesus’ disciples would have been seen as unqualified to follow Jesus. And yet Jesus chose them anyway.
It’s people like you that God used to change the course of human history.
“It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
- Matthew 9:12 (NIV)
You are so much more than the distorted view you’ve developed. You are more than you ever imagined.
“You are God’s chosen people. You are holy and dearly loved.”
- Colossians 3:12 (NIrV)
“God chose us to be in a relationship with Him even before He laid out plans for this world; He wanted us to live holy lives characterized by love, free from sin, and blameless before Him. He destined us to be adopted as His children through the covenant Jesus the Anointed inaugurated in His sacrificial life. This was His pleasure and His will for us.” -Ephesians 1:3-5 (The Voice Bible)

When you embrace your true identity, it changes everything.
When you see how God sees, nothing will ever be the same!
