“Who are you?”

Identity is a big deal in the world today, and the world likes to shape what that identity is going to be. We have all heard many times that we should go “find ourselves,” to discover who we are, but what does that really mean? Do we find ourselves in others? Activities? Hobbies? How often do others define us by our mistakes?

The Parkway Student Ministry has started a series pondering those questions. We referenced Galatians 2:20 for the answer: “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” From the the text, once we are believers, it is no longer us that lives, but Christ in us.

So what is the identity of a believer? Jesus. Jesus is our identity. Great! Now that we have that figured out we are good, right? Well, in order to know our identity we have to know: who is Jesus? For the next few weeks we are going to be studying the seven “I Am” statements of Jesus from the book of John to learn about who Jesus says he is. We are going to look at what truly satisfies the longing in each of us, and why only one piece will fill that void. Read along with us through the book of John!
