Identity Lesson #8

Helping others discover their identity


Intro: What is your favorite way to help other people ?



  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. Isaiah 6:8, Rom 10:14 Once we have discovered our true identity through Christ, God will send us to help others discover their true identity as well.
      1. Prov 16:25 We live in a world that has lost its identity, we are surrounded by people who are lost, hurting, dying, searching for their identity in sin.
      2. 2 Cor 5:15 We as Christians are not called to live for our own selfish desires, and ignore the lost and hurting people who surround us.
    2. Matt 25:20-21 God has called us to give of our time, use our talents, and spend our lives focusing on reaching those who are lost in the world.
  2. Romans 10:13-15 The most important way we help the lost around us know their true identity is through evangelism, sharing Christ and praying with others to accept Christ.
    1. 2 Tim 4:2, Mark 13:11 We need to be willing and ready to share Christ with those God brings our way,we need to face our fears trusting God will show us what to say.
      1. Eph 5:15-17 We should also be watching for those we can evanglize, as well as invite to our church, Crossfire cell groups, camps, and other events.
      2. 2 Cor 5:17 Its important that we know that as we reach out to evangelize others helping them discover their true identity in Christ that God will show us more clearly what our true identity and purpose is in this life.
    2. 1 Cor 3:6, 1 Tim 4:12 We will begin to see revival in this generation as we each do our part in helping those around us discover their true identity in Christ!



  1. What are some of the many false identitys that have blinded and deceived many in this generation ?
  2. Why do you think many Christians either are afraid to evangelize, or become to busy and distracted in life to focus on reaching out to others?
  3. Why is it so important for us to be willing to focus on evangelism and helping others discover their identity, rather than focus on our own selfish desires?
  4. Who are some people God has been putting on your heart to share Christ with? Have you stepped out and shared Christ with them? what happened?


End: Pray for all who need to accept Christ or rededicate their lives to Christ, pray for the lost people your cell groups are reaching out to, then pray for any requests.
