Ability to Change
As followers of Christ, we have a promise of a new identity in him. But a lot of us struggle to shake off the old habits that continue to plague us. So, what could it look like to get rid of those old habits and embrace the new habits that align with our new identity in Christ? Our new sermon series on identity entitled “Fully You” answers that question. Join us as we learn to recognize the spiritual roots of shame, forgive past hurts, and see how lasting change happens.
- Have you ever tried to beat an old habit or sin? How much success did you have? Can you relate to Paul in Romans 7:15 where he says he does the very things he doesn’t want to
- Change is hard, but it IS possible! Why do you think it's so hard to overcome our old sinful nature?
- Real, lasting change always starts on the inside. Richard Foster said, “The needed change within us is God’s work, not ours. The demand is for an inside job, and only God can work from the inside.” How can you allow God to work an inside job on you this week?
- This week, instead of seeking change, seek more of God.
