You can listen to this message right now by clicking here

This past weekend we talked about taking a God look at yourself. Below are the notes. The Bible is a revelation of God's thoughts toward you. I hope that these thoughts will help you consider who you really are according to God!

You will become what you BELIEVE.
“For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.” Proverbs 23:7 (AMP)
Understand what influences your perception of your life. They are influence by your...Your Parents, Your Past, Your Physique, Your Performance, Your Peers.
When you base the perception of your life on these factors, you are building on the wrong foundation. Matt. 15:10-11, 15-20, Luke 6:47-49

To change your perception of your life, discover what GOD says about you.
“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. 9 For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.” ISAIAH 55:8-9 (NIV)
"Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect." Romans 12:2 (NLT) *see also Psalm 139:17, Jeremiah 29:11, Ephesians 3:20

God Thought- If you have a limited view of God, you’ll always have a limited view of yourself.

1. The Word says you are WONDERFULLY created.
“I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.” Psalm 139:14 (NKJV)

“People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of rivers, at the circular motion of the stars, and they pass by themselves without ever wondering at all.” Augustine (399 AD)

2. The Word says you are created in the IMAGE of God.
“Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us... 27 So God created human beings[b] in his own image. In the image of God he created them male and female he created them... 28 Then God blessed them...”. Genesis 1:26-28
“... put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.” Colossians 3:10 *see also Colossians 1:15, Hebrews 1:3, John 14:9, 1 Corinthians 15:49, Romans 8:29

3. The Word says you were created with PURPOSE and DESTINY.
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2:10 (NLT) *see also Jeremiah 1:4-5 & 2 Timothy 1:9-10

4. The Word says that you are more VALUABLE than you can imagine.
“You have been bought and paid for by Christ, so you belong to him—be free now from all these earthly prides and fears” 1 Corinthians 7:23 (LB) *see also 1 Peter 1:18-19, Matthew 6:26; 10:31; 12:2

5. The Word says that what’s true of JESUS is true of you!
“Or have you forgotten that when we were joined with Christ Jesus in baptism, we joined him in his death? 4 For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.” Romans 6:3-4 *see also Romans 3:24; 6:23; 8:39,1 Cor.1:30-31, 2 Cor. 1:20; 2:14; 5:17, Gal. 3:26 Eph. 1:3-12; 3:6; 3:12, Philippians 3:9,1 Timothy 1:14; 3:13,1 John 5:14)

Life's Healing Choices, Part 6- Repairing Relationships

Week 6: REPAIRING RELATIONSHIPS- THE RELATIONSHIP CHOICE:
I evaluate all my relationships, offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me, and make amends for harm I’ve done to others, except when to do so would harm them or others.

“Happy are those who are merciful to others... Happy are those who work for peace.” Matthew 5:7,9 (TEV)

1. I can FORGIVE others because God has FORGIVEN me.
“To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable, because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.” C.S. Lewis

Lessons from a Hoarder (Luke 12:13-21)
13Someone out of the crowd said, "Teacher, order my brother to give me a fair share of the family inheritance." 14He replied, "Mister, what makes you think it's any of my business to be a judge or mediator for you?" 15Speaking to the people, he went on, "Take care! Protect yourself against the least bit of greed. Life is not defined by what you have, even when you have a lot."
