Defined by Truth

ReDefined Series
Session Two

Our world is based on a broken concept of God, ourselves and others. It’s a system that is driven by fear, comparison, and selfishness. Before coming to Christ, we lived under the weight and impact of this broken world, but our new life in Christ is designed to free us from our former way of life.

Unfortunately, we tend to carry the lies that defined us in our old life into our new life and allow them to continue to have an effect on us. We live limited and defined by the things others have spoken over us or done to us, rather than by the truth of who Christ says we are.

These lies stick with us, no matter how hard we try to outrun them, outshine them or shake them, they rattle around in the back of our minds reminding us that we are never enough.
Not smart enough.
Not pretty enough.
Not skinny enough.
Not tough enough.
Not talented enough. The list goes on and on.

And the longer we listen to the lies, the harder it is to embrace the truth. Lies will limit our lives and keep us from trying new things, building strong relationships or taking advantage of opportunities to stretch and grow. All because of a few little words that walked into our minds were allowed to drop into our hearts.

What we believe will determine how we live… so what we believe about God and about ourselves is critically important.
