Identity Matters: Living in the Truth
Aug 22, 2021 | Brian Weaver
Keeping up with the Jones has led to an elaborate effort for generations to maintain a façade of the struggles and brokenness that we all know to be true in our lives. As disciples of Christ we are called to authenticity, genuine lives, not because it’s the trendy thing to do in our culture, but because its how we grow as His disciples and in love for one another. What impact could you have on your “newsfeed” with more honesty about the struggles you face versus having it all look perfect and put together? The more we show the world the freedom that comes with an authentic life in Christ – freedom from guilt, shame, and brokenness – the more we can change the culture in the truth of Christ.
In a world run by, and consumed on, social media platforms, it is increasingly harder and harder to see a person’s true identity, or even to understand our own. This 5-week series will dive into some of the struggles that disciples of Jesus face in a world that is social media-based and how the truth of God’s promise throughout time, and His love shown on the Cross, can transcend the realities every generation faces and help us live our true lives and self in the love, grace and truth of our Savior Jesus Christ.
