WHO AM I?

SERMONS ON IDENTITY : SUMMER 2022

Am I of any worth, or just a collection of atoms here by chance? Does my body have purpose, or can I do with it what I will? Are my thoughts and feelings trustworthy, or should I be more cautious about myself? Is my sense of self fixed, or might it change? So many questions find their answer in what God has revealed about our identity and our place before him. This term we will consider these things as follows, and under three major headings:

 

I AM ROYAL

I'm made in God's image: Gen 1v26-27
I'm made with purpose: Gen 1v28-31
I'm made a glorious servant: Ps 8
I'm made as God decided: Ps 139v13-16

 

I AM RUINED
I'm prone to rebellion: Gen 3v1-7
I'm prone to deception: 1 Jn 3v7-10
I'm prone to confusion: Eph 4v17-19

I'm prone to coercion: Ps 1

I AM UNDER RECONSTRUCTION

I'm chosen: Eph 1v3-6
I'm redeemed: 1 Pet 1v17-21
I'm adopted: Rom 8v14-17
I'm being glorified: 2 Cor 4v16-5v5
