IDENTITY 2.0: The Irrational Life

Speaker:
Series:
Passage: 2 Corinthians 5:12-21
Service Type:

This week we begin a new series – but really we will continue to build on our IDENTITY in Christ.

As we study II Corinthians 5:12-21, we will examine what it means to be an Ambassador for Jesus, or as I call it: living “The Irrational Life!” Why does God use us to proclaim His message? Why does Jesus teach us to behave in a way that is anti-intuitive and against our basic human nature? What is my most important task in this life?

IDENTITY: Confession and Repentance

Speaker:
Series:
Passage: 1 John 1:5-10; Mark 1:9-15
Service Type:

This Sunday we’ll be talking about what the Bible says about Confession and Repentance. Our passages will be 1 John 1:5-10 and Mark 1:9-15. I encourage you to spend some time in these texts this week in preparation for our time together.

Repentance literally means “a new way of thinking.” I’ve been a Christian now for 47 years; and, to say that my new understanding of repentance has been a game-changer for me is an understatement! I’m convinced that you’ll find this discovery to be both fascinating and extremely practical as well.

IDENTITY: Kingdom Identity

Speaker:
Series:
Passage: Philippians 3:1-21
Service Type:

This Sunday we’ll be talking about our Kingdom Identity, our identity as Christ followers. Many of us, at one time or another in our lives, have lived in a false identity; and these false identities not only keep us from growing and maturing, but they also lack the power to sustain us.

Our passage this week will be Philippians 3:1-21. I encourage you to look at it ahead of time and observe the many ways in which the Apostle Paul used to derive his identity, in contrast with the new ways that He is being shaped.

IDENTITY: Hearing from God

Speaker:
Series:
Passage: 1 Samuel 3:1-21
Service Type:

This Sunday we'll be learning how to Hear From God as we look at 1 Samuel 3:1-21, in our second week of a new teaching series titled, "Identity."

In our last series on the Holy Spirit we discussed how we frequently have no problem believing that Satan is actively involved in speaking to, and influencing, people today, but we're often skeptical whether God interacts and intervenes. We acknowledge the presence of demonic communication in the world, but sometimes fail to give God credit for His activity and presence in everyday life.

Service Type:

Most of us love to receive invitations: "Please join us... The honor of your presence is requested... Please reserve the following date... We'd like for you to be our guests at..."

As Christians, we're privileged to be able to extend the grandest invitation anyone will ever receive; but, why do we often shy away from this opportunity. I'd like to suggest it's because we fail to appreciate all of the little invitations along the way that make a big invitation easier to accept.
