If asked, “Who are you?” my guess is that you would tell me a little about yourself and what you do. “I’m at secondary school”, “My favourite subject is history” or “I play football”. But that’s not really who you are—it’s what you do. Which leads to the question: If what you do is who you are, who will you be when you stop doing it?!

Who you really are is found in your relationship to Jesus. Your identity with Him should drive how we live. Take Matthew, for example. As a tax collector during the rule of the Roman Empire, his life was driven by greed. But everything changed the day Jesus showed up and invited Matthew to follow Him (Matt. 9:9). Suddenly Matthew had a whole new identity as one of Jesus’ friends! And he wasn’t the only one. We also read about four fishermen in Matthew 4:18-25—Peter, Andrew, James and John—who left their nets to follow Him.

Jesus is amazing, and He is still looking for more people to join Him. He wants to make something of your life by giving you the identity and purpose of being His friend. It doesn’t mean stopping doing your school work and your hobbies, but it does mean that you will do everything—all of life—with and for Him. So next time someone asks, “Who are you?” you can tell them, “I’m a follower of Jesus”!

KEY POINT: IF YOU KNOW JESUS, THAT’S WHO YOU ARE.
