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.
We encourage you to spend some time with God this week and go a bit deeper on this topic. Please consider these study questions and scripture based on the sermon for further reflection:
- What makes finding solitude so hard in your own life? Season of life? Kids? Work?
- Have you ever felt spiritually or emotionally empty? If you thought of solitude as a chance to recharge in those areas do you think it would make solitude more appealing?
- Write down one way you can find 15 minutes of solitude and quiet this week. Consider meditating on the idea that “in repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength.”
