Sunday message for November 18,2012

What is at the Core of our identity? In the world circumstances of race, nationality, income, language and culture can determine our identity. Measuring our value by our achievement betrays a philosophy of : I do,therefore, I am. This leads to insecurity or false pride. We know our true identity, according to the gospel, in our relationship with Christ: “I am loved,therefore I am.” By remembering God’s Grace,  that who we are is unshakable in  his love then everything we do flows out of gratitude. “Be imitators of God, therefore,as dearly loved children,and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.”   Ephesians 5:1-2
