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.
REFLECTION: How connected are you to others? If you had a personal or spiritual crisis of some kind, do you know who you would call?
GOING DEEPER: The gospel is not just for evangelism, it is the center of everything for Christians. What is the gospel and what are its benefits? What does it mean for how God sees and treats you?
APPLICATION: Would your relationships (friendships, marriage, parenting, work, church) and interactions look any different if you primarily saw yourself as a messenger of God's grace? How would they change? Do any objections to this approach come to mind?
Additional Scriptures to consider: Romans 3:10-24; Romans 15:7; Colossians 4:6
