New Series: Committed
Our ID identifies us. It is who we are. Our society shows us lots of ways to find our identity. It might come from our house, our car, our spouse, our children. For most of us our job is a part of our identity. What we do becomes a part of who we are. In this series we are going to learn about what Scripture says about who we are. In Baptism, we are given a new identity. We are baptized into the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. What would it look like to let this new identity shape the way we live?
After learning about our new identity in Christ, we turn our attention on to ways we can live out our identity and point others to him. This week,we are going to talk about "recreate." Both resting and creating. When we understand our identity in Christ, we should be able to let go and rest, and we should also have the freedom to create like no one else.
Bible Reading Plan/S.O.A.P. Journal
In 2017 at Grace Valley, we are working on sowing generously, and living courageously. But we won't do it very well, if we aren't sure of who we are in Christ. So as a way to continually remember who God is, and who we are in Him, many of us are once again reading through the Bible in a year. In addition to reading we are also using a tool called "SOAP Journaling" to help us listen well and process what we are learning about God. You can learn more about SOAP here If you want to download the reading plan, you can find it here. This weeks readings are also listed below.
