Today we are having a family service at LifeBridge before we kick off the summer schedule. Keep your kids in service with you for this week and don’t worry if they are a little squirmy, noisy, or both at the same time. The Backyard room is open for babies and wiggly kids so feel free to take your kids in there for a bit if needed. Audio from the service will be playing in there so you won’t miss a beat.
The life app for this month is confidence: living like you believe what God says is true. So today we are going to talk about having confidence in what God says about who you are.
Big Idea: Build your identity on the foundation of Jesus
When we build our identity on Jesus we experience the safety and the confidence to be who God created us to be.
Ephesians 2:19–22 19 Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. 21 In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. 22 And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.
Galatians 2:20 20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
