Sermons about Shame
Part two of a two week look at 1 Peter 2.11-12, we look at how the excellent life, lived by and through the life of Christ, allows us to testify of His great works to the world around us, in spite of suffering, slander and even our own sin.

Reclaiming Your God-Given Identity Judges 6-8 The Angel of God appeared to him and said, “God is with you, O mighty warrior! …Go in the strength that is yours. Save Israel from Midian. Haven’t I called you? …Gideon said to him, “Me, my master? How and with what could I ever save Israel? Look at me. My clan’s the weakest in Manasseh and I’m the runt of the litter.” – Judges 6:12, 14-15 God’s image of Gideon: “Mighty Warrior” Gideon’s distorted self-image: “Weak Runt” Personal Reflection: Who do you see when you look in the mirror? How has your self-image or identity been distorted over time? The Transformation Process (Truths that set people free): 1. God confirmed Gideon’s call or purpose (“Haven’t I sent you?” v. 14) • What is your God-given purpose or call? 2. God affirmed Gideon’s God-given identity (“Mighty Warrior!” v. 12) • What is your God-given identify, your “new name”? 3. God deals with Gideon’s shame (“God faced him directly” v. 14) • Will you surrender your shame? 4. Gideon begins to believe and to act • What agreements (lies) do you need to break? • What idols do you need to tear down? 5. The Holy Spirit is released in Gideon’s life (6:33-35) • Get ready for the Holy Spirit to move! God rewrote the test of my life when I opened the book of my heart to his eyes. – Psalm 18:24, MSG Link to "You Are More" by Tenth Avenue North http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3XY2yudW5n4

"Crack that whip! Give the past a slip...when a problem comes along, you must whip it...whip it good!" This week's "Songs I Like" is Devo's "Whip It." We've got to put the past behind us and push forward...past the hurt and heartache, past the shame and regret! If we're going to experience God and the abundant life, we've got to let go of the things that weigh us down and look to Christ, the author and perfecter of our faith!
