The Gospel Shaped Life - Creating a Culture of HONESTY & ACCEPTANCE

The Gospel Shaped Life - Creating a Culture of HONESTY & ACCEPTANCE

080518 Week 3_Gospel Shaped Life_HONESTY (1280x720).jpg

It is not our perfection that displays the glory of Christ to the world around us. But, our loving acceptance and forgiveness of the imperfections of others towards us; because, the perfect one Jesus has forgiven all of us all of our sins against Him. Enabling us to be free to forgive others when they sin against us, by the power of the Holy Spirit; but, if anyone does sin we have an advocate with the Father in Jesus Christ the righteous, He is the propitiation for our sins.

The Gospel Shaped Life - Creating a Culture of HUMILITY

THE GOSPEL SHAPED LIFE: CREATING A CULTURE OF HUMILITY

072918 Week 2_Gospel Shaped Life_HUMILITY (1280x720).jpg

Scripture Passage - Philippians 2:3-11

"Self" is the greatest barrier to living the gospel shaped life and fully displaying God's glory. 

To live a gospel shaped life of humility we must 1) understand who we are in Christ - Saint! and 2) understand who others are - their worth, value, and beauty. 

Living a gospel shaped life of humility is rooted in the redemptive work of Jesus Christ who came down low to seek, save, and humbly serve those who would deny "self" and follow Him. It is only through His truth and His grace that we receive the power of the Holy Spirit to live out the gospel and view others as more important than ourselves.

The Gospel Shaped Life - Creating a Culture of HOPE

THE GOSPEL SHAPED LIFE: CREATING A CULTURE OF HOPE

072218 Week 1_Gospel Shaped Life_HOPE (1280x720).jpg

To have Gospel Doctrine without Gospel Culture is hypocrisy. To have Gospel Culture without Gospel Doctrine is fragility. To have Gospel Doctrine AND Gospel Culture is to have POWER!

Biblical hope is a rock-solid conviction of faith in the future promises of God, a steadfast anchor in an unchangeable and immovable Almighty God. What is your source of life and hope? Is it the Word of God? What is your greatest hope? Is it to see King Jesus face to face in all of His glory? How do you create a culture of hope? By remembering to preach the truth of gospel to yourself daily AND by reminding others of His promises and helping them connect the transformational power of the gospel to their everyday life.

Being a follower of Christ is not easy, and the Bible never makes that claim. If we want to endure we need to one, recognize that there is difficulty coming; and two, we have to put our hearts in the right place. So be encouraged as Dr. Paul Dean shares stories from the Bible as well as his own experience of God's provision and faithfulness.

When we focus on the physical we’re going to miss the spiritual. Far too often we are so focused on our physical wants or needs that we forget God’s providence in the current and the past.  And in those situations, God has given us stories to reference His faithfulness when physical circumstances get tough.

As adults we take pride in our independence and in our ability to do life on our own. Unfortunately, this same pride makes us proud before God and we find it rather easy to do life apart from Him. Jesus offers another way; the way of humility and dependence and complete reliance upon a Good Father who loves us very much.

There are no accidents. God's timing and presentation are always perfect and always personal. Jesus gives you exactly what you need, when you need it. Because he knows you intimately; loves you deeply, and wants to experience the joy of his salvation more than you ever will.

We often try to clean up our lives and our hearts through external methods like exercise, reading, going to church, and even ministry. Jesus turns the tables yet again by saying nothing you do on the outside can fix what's inside, you can only fix the inside from within, through faith in Him.

How often do we forget about Jesus in our day to day, moment to moment routines? Probably more often than not. Jesus is still there, we may not see him or recognize him, but He is there, walking on the stormy waters our lives.

Sending Savior - Week 25 - John 13:34-35

Jesus commands us as His followers to love one another, not for our sake for but His, so that OTHERS may know that we His followers. In the context of the church, this means community and membership are paramount. So that we disciples of Christ can love those around us as He loves us.

The story of Jesus feeding the five thousand is about so much more than just fish and bread. Instead, this story shows us that Jesus is on a mission to use under-resourced and inadequate people like you and me to point the world to Himself.

You are either for Jesus or against Him. You are either helping forward the mission of God and participating in the expanse of His kingdom or you are NOT. There is no middle ground. Which side of the line are you on?

Sending Savior - Week 22 - Mark 6:1-6

What’s keeping you from experiencing freedom and fullness of life? Human reason, fear, and religion keep lots of people from receiving the grace of God that is provided to us in the person of Jesus. Jesus enters into our world and promises to set us free and give us the abundant life we so desperately long for. His only requirement is faith; will you trust and follow Him?

Arise - Week 21 - Mark 5:21-43

We celebrate Christmas because the Most High blessed us with the presence of His Son, the God Man, the embodiment of holiness, grace, mercy, justice. On this day, Easter, we look upon the cross that the same God who sent his Son as the divine emissary to Earth, that same God allowed His Son to be put to death, nailed to a wooden cross in the most spectacular display of grace, forgiveness, and love that could not have been imagined, so that we who were once destined for death may have eternal life.
