Message: Bury The Cycle
This week we got to experience Baptisms at all of our MetaChurch Venues! Baptism is the ultimate statement of identity.
Romans 6 says:
“4 Therefore we were buried with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too may walk in newness of life.“
In what areas of your life would you like to see something new?
What habits tare you still struggling with at the conclusion of this series? (We ALL have habits that we are working on!)
Much of our focus in the Triggered series has been on breaking our negative Habit Cycles. Baptism shows us that we can go a step further by BURYING them!
How does knowing that Jesus paid for your new life on the cross change the way you view your identity?
What would living with a sense of "newness of life" look like in your day-to-day experience?
Each week, we look to apply one aspect of the sermon to our lives.
This is how we see real change in our world! We cannot just gather on Sundays to talk about making a difference - our lives ARE the difference that shows the world, Jesus!
Here is your application question for this week:
What is ONE WAY you will remind yourself of your new life in Jesus each day this week?
You could set a reminder on your phone each morning, start a group thread of encouragement, write Romans 6 on your mirror, or even put a picture of your baptism the screen-saver on your phone for the week!
Only you will know how to effectively do this. Baptism helps us see the picture of who we were meant to be. If you can SEE it, you can BE it!
Spend some time praying over the people who were baptized on Sunday. Ask God to protect them spiritually, emotionally, and even physically. Pray that they would begin to find opportunities to be a witness to the world around them who may not know Jesus.
Next Sunday we begin the series that will take us all the way to Easter! Begin praying for the people that God is going to ask you to invite to one of these services!
