Sermons about Identity
One of the most basic human needs is the need to belong. One of the greatest results of sin is that it destroys right places and senses of belonging and creates abandonment. God’s answer to humanity’s broken experience of ultimate belonging is predestination and adoption.
For many of us, experiences of rejection are what mostly shape our sense of identity. Those moments we’ve all had of being skipped over, left out, unwanted and not chosen. These negative episodes not only inform the way we feel about ourselves, but the way we think about God and how we act with and toward others. In this sermon we learn that what is actually most true about us is that we are loved and chosen by God in Christ, and that these glorious truths create for us a new identity and a better way to live toward God and in the world.

Why is it that we seem to have the most difficult time being content? Is everyone like this? Is this the way we are supposed to be? What is the remedy? Ephesians 1:3 helps us learn about our source of contentment and how to think and feel rightly about our identity in Christ.

In this passage Paul wishes us grace and peace. What does it mean for the Christian to have grace and peace when we seem so unworthy and unsettled? Is it right to feel unworthy? What is meant here by peace since conflict is common to life? In this sermon we learn what grace frees us from and enables us to do and how peace is actually wholeness.
There is a vast need in our world today. The crazy thing is that we are all the means by which God wants to bring gospel peace in the midst of much brokenness. Join us as we examine what our identity is in relationship to the world we live in.
In this sermon we examine the disciples embarrassment with Jesus and who Jesus calls us to love that we don't.
Scripture says that every Christian is holy, or a saint. If we were to be honest, most would agree that we usually see ourselves as anything but holy. In actuality, we feel more dirty than holy. More like scums than saints! And yet, we are called holy saints. What does this mean? How can we be holy if we feel so dirty? And if it is true that we are holy, how does this affect the way we think and feel about God and ourselves? And how do we go about living holy lives?
