There is a relationship between knowing who God really is and knowing our true identity.
Knowing who God really is
Lisa Bevere referenced Matthew 16: 13 -19 to preach on the relevance between our knowledge of God’s identity and our own identity. When God asked his disciples who they think He is, Jesus wants them to know who they really are.
“How about you? Who do you say I am,” Jesus asked his disciples.
When Simon expressed his knowledge of who Jesus is, Jesus then gave him another identity, His true identity. Jesus then named him Peter, a rock who will be the foundation of His Church. When we get to know who God really is, God lets us discover our identity in His Kingdom.
“When I have a revelation of who God really is, I discover for the first time who I really am. God is the only one who can tell me who I really am. Other people can tell me who I’ve been, but God is always going to tell me about who I am becoming.”
Knowing our true identity
People around us may call us by our past, by our mistakes, but only God can call us by our true identity.
“God is saying to us, I cannot have you be a people who bow and bend in the direction of every wind of doctrine who are bowing to what they hear. I got to have you be Peter, I got to have you be rock solid.”
If we want the fullness of heaven here on earth, we must first know who we really are.
“You will have complete and free access to God’s Kingdom, keys to open any and every door, no more barriers between heaven and earth, earth and heaven… If you don’t know who you are, you don’t know what to ask.”
God is calling us by name and that name is according to our destiny and not our past.
“God has called you by name and God does not name us according to our history, God names us according to our destiny.”
