The Real You

Discovering Your Identity

Commissioned for Boldness

August 30, 2020 • Lucas Prado

How do we live with faith, courage, and freedom? You are commissioned to live out the gospel in the middle of suffering. This boldness has nothing to do with personality, and everything to do with God.

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.
