The Real You
Discovering Your Identity
Welcome to the Family
August 23, 2020 • Jon Thompson
Is Jesus really our brother? Many of us know Jesus as Saviour, Shepherd, Lord, King—but when's the last time you thought about the Son of God as your sibling? Understanding our relationship to Jesus after we're adopted into the family of God impacts how we see ourselves and our purpose.
Set Free to Love Freely
August 16, 2020 • Angela Mason
Jesus came to set you free from sin and death so that you may experience the fullness of life—both now and forever. Recognizing the significance of this freedom helps us cultivate gratitude that fuels our ability to love freely in the face of any challenge.
Risking Your Destiny
August 9, 2020 • Ben Hilson
We all want to achieve our full potential, but what if the cultural vision for your life can’t get you to where you actually want to go? God offers an alternative path, but following Jesus will cost you the compromise of comfort. As followers of Jesus, we are called to be people of his presence that help bring God’s kingdom into the present. It's a calling that changes how we view ourselves and everything we do in this life.
Live What You Believe
August 2, 2020 • Sunder Krishnan
To know who you are, you must know who you're not. The truth depends on distinctions—and knowing our limitations leads us into a deeper relationship with the only One who is capable of helping us become everything we're meant to be. It's time for us to live what we believe.
Reflect What You've Received
July 26, 2020 • Anne Miranda
How you define yourself matters. Our beliefs influence our behaviour—and the story of Ruth exemplifies how God weaves our decisions and actions into his unfolding plan of redemption. Simply put, God redeemed you for a reason: to reflect the lovingkindness that you first received. So ask yourself: am I ready to impact the world by living as a child of God?
Friend of God
July 19, 2020 • Nathan Veley
God wants to connect with you on a deeper level—so much so that He calls you His friend. The heart of friendship is to know the heart of the one who befriends you. God wants to transform your heart by revealing his own, but great friendships take time and effort. Learn how investing in this one relationship will transform how you relate to everything and everyone else—including yourself.
The Fruit of Favour
July 12, 2020 • Jon Thompson
What does it mean to be favoured by God? There's a significant difference between the favour we achieve through our own efforts and the favour we receive as a gift from God. One provides an edge, the other develops our character. God's favour is always about the bigger picture—are you ready to trust him during the process?
Found and Formed Through Faith
July 5, 2020 • Jon Thompson
Where do you find your identity? Many of us root our sense of self and sense of worth in what we own, what we do, and what others say about us—yet the Gospel reveals that our identity is based on what's already been done through Jesus. Who will we trust? God's inviting you to join the family—but this identity must be received, not achieved.
