Remix: This is Us
Is your heritage important? Do your past experiences play any part in who you currently are and how you deal with life? Just as our genetics and our past experiences play a large part in defining how we react to life, our biblical heritage and our spiritual experiences also help us to better understand who we are. Our lack of a firm grasp of who we are in God’s eyes and what part we play in that story can help us to overcome some of the obstacles that our past presents. Next time you consider your heritage remember that it goes all the way back to the very beginning. God’s story is our story.
Questions to ponder:
What do you think was the main point of Matt’s sermon?
How does the story of entire Biblical story help us to better understand who we are?
What principles do we learn from this and how can we practically apply them to our lives?
What does this say about:
· Who He wants me to be?
Do something about it:
Understanding the Bible story is less about knowing the story as it is about knowing why the story is important to me. If it is not already part of your regular routine, make time to read and study God’s Word each week. Find ways to expand that understanding by discussing what you learn with others. Let your motivation be that knowing God and His story better will help you define not only who you are, but also who you were made to be.
