What we do with our bodies matters to God. That is why, in today’s sexualized culture, we need to be reminded of the clear biblical guidelines God has provided, and the boundaries He has put in place, to protect our bodies, preserve our physical and emotional health, and help us remain true to our identity in Christ.

What we truly believe should determine the way we live. But when we are honest with God, and with ourselves, we admit that we are not always sensitive to the things of God. We need to seek His forgiveness, and be restored through His grace and His love, so we can return to the right side of the Cross.

We live in a celebrity-loving culture that values fame, reputation, and name recognition. As we seek to serve on God’s team, we must recognize that the values that truly matter – servanthood, accountability, trustworthiness, and justice – may make us subject to criticism and even ridicule.

If the culture seeps into the church, it is like a poison that undermines its very foundation. To prevent this, we must have a clear understanding of who we are in Christ, what we are to do, and how we are to live. Three powerful metaphors explain what we are to be as we grow and mature in our walk.
Scripture: 1 Corinthians 3:10 - 3:22

God makes available to us, through His Holy Spirit, the very mind of Christ. Imagine what that is like, and how this can transform your daily walk, your vocabulary, your habits, and your relationships. What an amazing gift is ours when we have the wisdom of God, which is the very mind of Christ.
Scripture: 1 Corinthians 2:6 - 2:16
