Romans 8:12-13 | Dignity & Desire

Dignity and Desire. People are often confused.

Dignity...everyone deserves it because they are created in the image of God.

Desire...we hear that to live life to the fullest, we must follow our heart, and that we detract from our dignity if we deny our desires.

But our hearts often desire self-preservation, self-centeredness, self-glorification, and self-indulgence...all things that God says de-humanize who He created us to be and separate us from life with Him.

So God put His Spirit in us, to help us say no to our self-centered desires. And when that happens, we are free to say yes.

YES to loving God and YES to loving our neighbors. And in that, we find a dignity and life that lasts for eternity.

In Christ, everything changes.

Join us Sunday to get some vision on the promises of God.
