Closer to Self: How to love who God has made me to be
CLOSER TO SELF: HOW TO LOVE WHO GOD HAS MADE ME TO BE
Pastor Aaron Sutherland
Matthew 22: 35-40
"One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: 'Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?'Jesus replied: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."
1. ADMIT MY PROBLEM
"And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds..."
2. ACCEPT GOD’S SOLUTION
"...he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him..."
3. ALLOW FOR GOD’S PROCESS
"...if indeed you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard, which has been proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, became a minister."
1. Are there some areas where God could shake you?
2. What are some ways you can draw close to God this week?
3. What has felt like a death (hard situation, broken relationship, etc.) but was actually a pathway to life
