Genesis 3:1-13 | Taught on 06 Nov 2011 | 39:41
We were created in the image of God and so created to be in relationship–to be radically towards one another in relationship and in community. There is no more intense, intimate picture of this than marriage. Pastor Dave speaks about marriage through the lens of being created in the image of God in Genesis 1:25-27 and 2:18-25.
Genesis 1:25-27 & 2:18-25 | Taught on 23 Oct 2011 | 43:22
How does God work into you and work out of you your new identity? And what is our role in all this? We are not passive in this endeavor but how do we work out what God works in? Pastor Dave concludes the Identity series with a look into Philippians 2:12-13.
Philippians 2:12-13 | Taught on 10 Jul 2011 | 39:56
If what you have, what you do, and what you desire don’t make you who you are, how does your new identity in Christ shape what you do, what you have and desire? Pastor Dave speaks on how our new identity in Christ affects how we see ourselves in our work, what we do, and what we desire in Eph 4:22-32.
Ephesians 4:22-32 | Taught on 03 Jul 2011 | 39:56
Once we place our faith in Jesus, the truest thing about us becomes this New Identity that Christ gives to you. Paul calls this new identity a new self. How does this New Self Emerge out of the Old Self? Pastor Dave teaches on the emergence of this new self in Col 3:10.
Colossians 3:10 | Taught on 26 Jun 2011 | 39:56
We are often pulled this-way and that-way by our own will or the will of others. In Colossians 3:1-4, the Christian is called new and has received a newness that allows him or her to set their eyes on things above. Where does your heart lie? Guest speaker, Francis Chan speaks on setting our eyes on things above.
Colossians 3:1-4 | Taught on 12 Jun 2011 | 42:00
From the moment we trust in Jesus and begin to follow Him, the mandate of scripture is to become who you are. The way Paul approaches this “becoming who you are-ness” in Colossians 3 is by using a “put off” and “put on” paradigm. The word that best embodies this idea is repentance. Pastor Dave teaches on how the life of a follower of Jesus should be one of repentance in Col 3:5-15.
Colossians 3:5-15 | Taught on 05 Jun 2011 | 36:20
How does the follower of Jesus become more like Jesus? Rules never work for lasting change and following the deepest desires of our heart often ends in chaos. How does God transform us? In part 5 of our New Identity Series, Pastor Dave teaches on this topic through Col 3:1-4.
Colossians 3:1-4 | Taught on 29 May 2011 | 36:56
If we neglect to live out of the core truth that we are loved by God through Jesus, and that love is neither earned nor deserved, we will begin to reduce Christianity to self-improvement. In part 4 of the identity series Pastor Dave teaches on what the righteousness of Christ says to the believer in Col 3:1-4.
Colossians 3:1-4 | Taught on 22 May 2011 | 35:37
Is Christ your life? This is a question that either completely destroys you with conviction or fills you with pride. Neither approach is helpful. Paul doesn’t frame it as a question in Colossians 3, but as a fact. An indicative. A truth. The truest thing about the Christian. Now what does that mean? Pastor Dave teaches on the Christian’s new identity.
Colossians 3:1-4 | Taught on 15 May 2011 | 35:37
Although we live in a throw away culture where we throw away things when they are used or broken, God doesn’t view things this way. Pastor Tarik teaches on how Jesus restores Peter because God is a restoring God.
