Navigating Recap


A Recap on Part 2: Navigating from the sermon series You Were Meant For This at Clarity Church.

There is nothing more frustrating than knowing where you want to go, but not knowing how to get there.  We call this being lost.  But what if the problem of navigating from "where we are" to "where God wants us to be" is less obvious than we think? Let's take a look at what we discussed this past week.

How do we navigate the problem of “where we are” isn't where we want to be?


1. The PROBLEM may be that we don’t know what the PROBLEM may be.

I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.

-Romans 7:15


2. Navigating from “where you are” to where you hope to be is not found in a “DO” but in a “WHO

Who will rescue me...

-Romans 7:24


3. A life in CHRIST is free to live out God’s VALUE for your life.

Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!

-Romans  7:25


4. In Christ, what is true of CHRIST is true of YOU

Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?

-Romans 6:3


Hebrews 12:1b-2a

..let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith

When we allow God to set the value our lives we change our thinking about who we are.

When we allow Christ to be the Lord of our lives we change the spiritual condition of who we are. 

Already tried the "Jesus thing" out and it "didn't work for you?"  Did you "give your heart to Jesus" but it seemed to not make a bit of difference in changing your life?  In part 3 we will look at the single most significant thing you can do to succeed at living a growing life of faith.  In fact, it is impossible to have a growing faith without understanding what you were geared for.  But now I'm getting ahead of myself.  Stay tuned for part 3.
