Sunday Snapshot Identity Theft - Chia Pet

If you’re struggling with living a life without PURPOSE or one that often feels INSIGNIFICANT… You won't wanna miss this Series! 

Ephesians 2:10… For we are God’s Workmanship (MASTERPIECE) - created in Christ Jesus TO DO GOOD WORKS - which God PREPARED IN ADVANCE FOR US TO DO! 

 

WHAT'S IT GONNA TAKE TO GET YOUR ATTENTION? 

 

TRAGEDIES that God ALLOWS are designed to drive you TO GOD - not AWAY from HIM! 

When we ACCURATELY SEE God’s IDENTITY - it immediately reveals our IDENTITY… WITHOUT HIM!! (Isaiah 6… Isaiah was UNDONE when he saw God!) 

The first response of an unholy person to the Holiness of God is an acute awareness of Personal Sin! (You must be UNDONE before you can be REDONE!) 

Our IDENTITY in Christ... The reason we can be called CHILDREN of God and assume that as our IDENTITY… is not because we are GOOD but because we are FORGIVEN! 

We'd do ourselves well to learn this quickly... Our REAL IDENTITY is not a DEMOCRACY - it is however…  a THEOCRACY! (One where GOD RULES!)

  

See Ya Sunday!!

SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (‘P,nc?uat!on. - 6)

‘P,nc?uat!on. / WHAT IF WE LOVED LIKE JESUS LOVED @ THE CHURCH?

We LOVE... CONDITIONALLY!

Jesus LOVES... UNCONDITIONALLY!

(Great place to start in 'LOVING LIKE JESUS' @ the Church!)

Jesus ALWAYS put PEOPLE in front of PRACTICES when LOVING them!

We are to LOVE one another - not - LAW one another!

Jesus is the ONLY ONE who can call someone guilty of Sin or not guilty of Sin - because He's the one who died on the CROSS for their Sins!

John 8...The Adulterous Woman

1. Jesus tells her to 'Go... & Sin no more!'

-This was an ACCEPTANCE of the Woman without APPROVAL of her Sin!

2. Jesus FORGIVES THE SIN then FOCUSES ON HER FUTURE! (Go & Sin No More!)

-Basically saying "I've Forgiven You - Now Go Act Like It!"

ACTING like we’ve been FORGIVEN gives us better APPRECIATION and MOTIVATION to “SIN NO MORE” ourselves - AND... to LOVE others like Jesus @ the Church! 

See Ya Sunday!!
