This song reveals our identity in Christ. The theme comes from John 8 “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free”. Then Jesus said, “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” As Christians, we were never the person we were before. Because now, all you would say is that “I am a child of God.” Our previous self would not see any difference with anyone else in the world. But as we know and nurture a personal relationship with God and know about this love He has for us, we start to discover the truth.
With such melody and declarative lyrics, “Who You Say I Am” continuously strikes a chord that we are His children, chosen and unabandoned. We might feel like the world may always be strange to us, but we would always find peace in Him.
