A Case of Mistaken Identity (Sex & Identity)

 

God gave us our sexuality, it’s a good thing. Yet so easily our sexuality can become the primary expression of our identity with disastrous results – we get caught in a case of mistaken identity. This message is about exploring the needs that would make a part become the person, and where our true identity should be found.

Sex is good, but it is not God.

(Judges 13-16, 1 Corinthians 7)

Rules That Release (The Ten Commandments)

God’s rules are always for our release, moving us day by day from slave to priest.

(Exodus 20:1-18)

When that staff strikes you, what will rise to the surface?

(Exodus 6:1-10:29)
