LESSON INTRO- Welcome to week 4 of “Inside Out: Being Real in a Fake World.” Last week, Pastor Chris took us through Luke 12 as we examined Jesus’s feelings toward hypocrisy. This week, we continue our study of Luke 12, exploring how Jesus informs our identity.




  1. Growing up, what are the major factors that contribute to our identity?


  1. Has identity been something you battled growing up? Why or why not?




“I say to you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that have no more that they can do. But I will warn you whom to fear: fear the One who, after He has killed, has authority to cast into hell; yes, I tell you, fear Him! Are not five sparrows sold for two cents? One of them is forgotten before God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows. “And I say to you, everyone who confesses Me before men, the Son of Man will confess him also before the angels of God; but he who denies Me before men will be denied before the angels of God. ”

On Sunday, Pastor Bret explored one of the great paradoxes of our identity.

  • You are absolutely one of a kind.
  • You are not that unique at all.


  1. Respond to the following quote: “To live in the fullness of our identity, we have to live in the tension of that paradox.” What do you think this means?


  1. One of the universals that can be pulled from this text is that “there are some things that are more important than your life.” How is this supported from the text. What do you think it means?


  1. The proper foundation for our identity is living out of the assurance that we are right before God. However, we all have things in our lives that try to secure that foundational spot. What in your life . . . or what about your identity . . . that tries to steal that foundational spot of who you are? (At my core, I am a . . . parent/spouse/job/money/etc)
