Identity Lesson #2

Who is God ?


Intro: What is one question that you would like to ask God when you get to heaven?



  1. Col 3:1-4, 1 Peter 2:9 One of the most important issues facing this generation in all parts of the world is the question of Identity.
    1. Mark 8:27-29 Many youth and young adults are not only searching for their own identity, they are also asking the question “Who is God ?”
      1. Rom 12:2, Jer 9:24 There are many who are confused about the identity of God because of who the world, friends, parents or teachers say God is.
      2. John 16:33 There are others who have a wrong idea of who God is because of people who have hurt them, or because of bad things that have happened to them.
    2. Matt 16:13-16 This generation is asking many questions about God, they want to know is God real? Who is God to me? Can he change my life and heal my pain?
  2. 1 Cor 4:4, John 8:44 The devil is lying to this generation, he wants to deceive people into thinking God is not faithful, that God doesn’t care, or even that God isn’t real.
    1. Rom 1:20-21 We are living in a world that is confused about the reality of God, and the identity of who God is.
      1. Psalms 111:10 The way that we discover the identity of who God is begins with our personal salvation, when we accept Christ we gain true wisdom.
      2. Jer 29:11-14, Prov 8:17 We continue to discover the truth of who God is as we seek him in prayer, trust him, obey him, and surrender areas of our lives to him.
    2. 2 Cor 5:20, 2 Cor 4:7 God wants us to then communicate the true identity of who he is to the lost and dying world around us.
