Who are you? Do you describe yourself by your responsibilities, relationships or economic status? The truth is that you are so much more than all of those. You are complex, unique and created with purpose. The only way to truly know yourself is to know the One who made you: God. He created you and wants you to know Him and who He made you to be. Do you know yourself? You think about it, let's talk about it.

TRANSCRIPT:
Hello world! I want to ask you one of my favorite questions of all time: Who are you? Who are you, really? Have you ever met yourself?

If in answer to the question you tell me what you own, where you live, what you drive, what smartphone model you use, you really don’t know yourself. And some of you may tell me what you eat. Be careful what you eat—if you eat too much turkey or exotic snake or smelly fish. If you gave me those kinds of answers, you really don’t know yourself, your true self, your inner self, your core self. You’re broken up into fragmented identities.

So let me introduce you to yourself. To meet yourself. Who are you? Who are you, really? Well maybe you’ll give me your name in answer to that question, and that’s as close as you can get, because your name is unique. It hangs around you for the rest of your life. Your password might be unique as well. You may have heard of the man who changed his password to “incorrect,” because his computer kept saying, “Your password is incorrect.” “Your password is incorrect.”

Others of you might tell me what you do in answer to “Who are you?” Now that is your role definition. It’s good for you to know what you do, especially for your bosses to know what you do. But that’s role definition. Some of you may tell me where you’re going. That’s good as well. Goal definition, but really what I’m really asking for is your soul definition—your inner, true, core you. Who are you? Who are you, really?

There’s an old movie called “Multiplicity.”

Where the main character is so busy with life at work, at home with his kids and his wife and so on. He asks a scientist to clone him. So one clone goes to work, one clone stays at home, one clone goes to play with the kids. Unfortunately one of the clones gets too busy with his own work-life balance and clones himself. And every time the wife meets one of these, and only one at a time, she’s confused. The outside looks all alike, but the inside is different. Okay, that’s where biology is different from you.

Biology through empirical, evidential-based science can tell you a little bit about who you are uniquely with your fingerprints and retinas and so on. But I’m talking about the differentiated contrastive uniqueness: you. And you cannot get that answer unless you know the one who’s made you. Who’s creatively endowed His dignity and uniqueness and artistic ability inside you. You are a witness to His art and science. Because you are not factory-made, you’re God-made. You’re not man-made, you are God-made. And the One who made you comes to this earth in order to help you meet yourself. In fact, you cannot know yourself unless you know the Lord Jesus.
