Who are you really?.

Who are you really?

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9

Introduction:
Who are you really?
When the makeup is removed, when you go home and no one else is looking. When you look in the mirror and look at your face…who are you really?
If someone were to sum you up with just a few sentences what would they say about you? What would they use to describe your character and your personality? Who are you really?
1. It’s about our identity: WHOSE are we?
Chosen
Abram is chosen to be the father of many nations…Isaac sacrifice….
Samuel is chosen by God…Eli was old.
Royal.
David is anointed by Samuel chosen by God to be the king…
Solomon – David’s son is the richest royalty to ever live…chosen by God

Holy.
The day of Pentecost came and the disciples were praying in the upper room…
A persecutor of Christians was on a road when God chose Him for a holy purpose…
• Set apart

God’s Special Possession.
• You’re His!
• Not someone else’ possession
• Your name is written: See, I have written your name on the palms of my hands. Always in my mind is a picture of Jerusalem’s walls in ruins. (Isaiah 49:16)

2. It’s about our Purpose: What we should be and do!
Purpose of our “chosenness” – “That you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”

Questions:
Do you know whose you are?
Do you know who you really are?
Or do you have an identity crisis?
Do you know the purpose for which you’ve been called?
or are you wandering around aimlessly from one thing to the next?
What are the things that are preventing you right now from living as a Chosen child of God?
