Monday Teaching Recap

Monday, February 14, 2011
Wrapped up The Social Network yesterday by talking about the three lies we can believe about ourselves that can ruin our relationships - what is fake versus what is real.

Jesus faced the temptation to believe the same three lies himself, and the story is told in Matthew 4:1-11.

Lie 1: I Am What I Do - the PERFORMANCE lie

In fact, God judges us not on our own performance but rather that of Jesus - we get credit for his if we are in relationship with him.

Lie 2: I Am What Others Thing - the POPULARITY lie

In fact, the opinion of the Creator matters more than that of anything created being, and His opinion is that if we are in relationship with Christ we are fully accepted and loved.

Lie 3: I Am What I Have - the POSSESSIONS lie

In fact, what matters more is whether or not God possesses our heart.

The stakes are so high that we get these lies beaten in our life because as Colossians 1:15 says we are what others form their opinions of God by!

Looking forward to launching a new series next week - The Real Jesus.
