One of the hardest things for us to understand is what is good about us and what is bad about us.
Every human being is born with God-given dignity and purpose, and deserves love, honor and respect.
But every human being is also born "me-occupied", resentful that God tells each human what is right and wrong in His eyes.
In our natural selves, we buck God's authority over us, pursuing our own desires even if they contradict God's.
Romans 8:6 tells us that this is spiritual suicide (to quote William Barclay). For living life this way leads to death. But living life, with the Spirit's help, to honor God's desires, actually brings the fulfilling life we long for.
In Christ, everything changes.
Join us Sunday at 10am to get some vision on the promises of God.
