    01-01-17-Personal-Change-The-Truth-Will-Set-You-Free

    The secret to personal change is not willpower. The secret is to know and face the truth. You must know and face the truth about yourself, your relationships, and your own nature if you want to change anything in your life.

  • Be Confident in Whose You Are

    When Jesus said, “I am the light of the world,” he was defining himself. He was saying, “I know who I am.” At least 18 times in the Bible, Jesus said, “I am” and then gave a description. He described himself as the door, the bread of life, the way, the truth, the resurrection, and the life. Over and over, he defined himself. Jesus knew who he was (and still is) and, as a result, he was not under pressure.

  • How the Cross Proves Your Value

    12-29-16-Identity-How-The-Cross-Proves-Your-Value

    God says that not only are you accepted; you’re also valuable! How much do you think you’re worth? I’m not talking about your net worth; I’m talking about your self-worth. Don’t ever confuse your valuables with your value as a person. You can be rich or poor, but it has nothing to do with your value as a person.

    Most of us spend our entire lives trying to earn acceptance. We want to earn it from our parents, peers, partners in life, people we respect, and even people we envy. The desire to be accepted drives us to do all kinds of things. It can influence the kind of clothes you wear, the kind of car you drive, the kind of house you buy, even the career you choose.

    You don’t have to stay the same! In conversion, we’re given a new identity. Look at Jacob in the book of Genesis. Once he confesses his manipulative behavior, God gives him a new identity.

    It’s hard to think of another time during the year when our lives are more rushed than the holidays. We hit the holiday parties, visit the relatives, buy gifts, and basically run ourselves ragged.

    Yesterday, we began looking at what it will take to find real, lasting peace with God, with yourself, and with others this Christmas season. You need to take three steps to find it. First, you need to reach a moment of clarity.

    You’ll hear the word “peace” used all the time during the Christmas season. It’s a powerful word, in part because it’s something all of us want. We long for peace — peace with God, peace within, and peace with others.
