This video was made by our worship class for chapel on February 2nd, 2018. Too often as humans, we try to be something that we are not. We look to our faults as humans instead of celebrating who God made us to be.
This video led into a message that focused on who God says that we are through his word. Ultimately, we are each sons and daughters of the king and we can rest in the fact that we have a place in heaven with him because of the death of his son.
Too often we focus on our view of ourselves or how others view us. We want you to remember these truths that Christ tells you through his word:
- The world says you have to be in a relationship or have a significant other to be happy.
- God says I’m all you need.
- The world says we have to have a bunch of friends to be fulfilled.
- God says a relationship with Him fulfills your deepest needs.
- The world tells us, “You are alone."
- God says, “I will never leave you, I am always there for you.”
- The world says “Aging is a bad thing.”
- God says “Wisdom comes with age.”
- The world says, “Nobody loves you.”
- God says, “I always love you.”
- The world says, “You’re worthless.”
- God says, “I made you with a purpose.”
- The world says, “God could never love someone like you.”
- God says, “I have sought you out to be my child and you are perfect in my eyes.”
- The world says, “You’re not good enough, smart enough, talented enough.”
- God says, “I made you with your own unique gifts.”
- The world says, "Live for yourself."
- God says, "Live for others, live for me."
- The world says, “There is no hope for my circumstance.”
- God says, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 15:13)
- The world tells you that the family situation you are a part of is hopeless.
- God tells you He is your forever loving and eternal father.
Carry this truth with you today: "This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins." 1 John 4:9-10
