Sermons about Identity
Today we'll tackle the "you complete me myth" and discover lessons about singleness from the life of Ruth. You might think or feel you are ordinary, but God wants to work in our ordinary lives and do extraordinary things. The story of Ruth is about a single woman who found completeness in an extraordinary God.
Being single in our culture is tough as the common thought is that being married is normal. Jesus and Paul both revolutionize this thought and tell us that being single is a gift. They also destroy the 'you complete me' myth - that being in relationship with someone else brings us significance and wholeness - only Jesus can do that.
This week Pastor Morris Dirks shares some thoughts from Romans 6 for his talk titled "Out With The Old and In With The New."
We are to identify ourselves with our relationship to Christ, not our social status, job, or sexuality.
Sermon #27 from the "God with Us" series. Scripture from John 10:22-42.
While the metaphor has been marred by poor example, God loves us like a father loves his children. He gives Christ-followers a new identity. Those born of Him are righteous (1 John 2:29) and purified (3:3). This intimate reality goes against a culture where fathers abandon their children and personal worth grows out of impersonal labels. John wants his beloved readers to fix their eyes on the Father's affection. It will change them, if not now, then at Jesus' return.
Single? Dating? Married? Divorced? Kids? No kids? Love your parents? Can’t stand them? What does God say about our modern relationships and family? Our new series explores the relationships that make up and sometimes define our lives. We all face challenges when it comes to relationships. God’s Modern Family covers biblical principles that we can all put to use.
Each of us has a deep need to feel connected, but often we go through life lonely. Does the Bible have anything to say about this? Exploring John 1:12-13 we will discover who we are and our relationship with God. It is important to contrast the way we tend to address our loneliness and the way the Bible addresses it. We tend to look for connections in negative areas of life. The Bible says that our loneliness and alienation will only truly be healed when we are adopted into the family of God.
The battles for our mind are many. It would be nice if they were few and far between...but that is not reality. Resurrection is reality, and that means everything has been impacted - even one's identity if they follow God. An interesting thing about getting our identity figured out...it helps us with a more healthy perspective concerning the "put on" and "put off" imagery in the Bible.
