Resources For This Week

Passage- Genesis 1:26-27 (ESV)

Key Points:

  • Your identity is: God made you, and Jesus saved you!
  • Man is fundamentally a creature of God.
  • Your life does not belong to you, it belongs to God.
  • You were created on purpose for a purpose. 
  • Vertical identity is rooted in worshiping God as Creator.
  • Every single human is beautifully unique as a testament of Gods creative glory. 
  • The church should be a safe place for people to be able to work through every identity issue. 
  • The biblical worldview begins with God creating gender distinctions, male and female. 
  • Manhood and womanhood are directly linked to our biology and genetics. 
  • All other gender identities are a distortion of the image of God and the good order He established when He created them male and female. 
  • We have been made by Jesus for Jesus and we can only know ourselves in Him!
