Living in Light of Redemption & Restoration

Romans 12:1-3

  • God saved you for a purpose for your life
  • Surrender your life to Jesus
  • It takes time to change

Do you want a restored life?

1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.
2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
3 For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.

Unique Giftings

Eph 4:11-13

11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
We are wired to make a contribution for individual gifts. This happens when we are redeemed and restored, tapped into God’s resources.
Exodus 33 & 35 – God’s talking about how the Tabernacle, Arc of the Covenant and priestly garments were made… God gave Passion and skills to certain people to build and design God’s kingdom.

1 Cor 12:4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them.

  • Ask God to reveal “What am I created for”
  • Be ALL IN!
  • I want to be about God’s purpose
  • Make a difference in the world

Embrace HIS purpose for your life!

    There needs to be a redemptive solution, one that embraces the gospel of grace and the living Redeemer who enters into situations and relationships wracked with sin to bring reconciliation and healing.
