SERMON: September 17th, 2017 “I.D. Reality”
God is in our DNA because He created us and because He knew us before the foundation of the world. Today Pastor Dave spoke about who we are. We are a child of God – that is our identity. He used this quotation as spoken by Nelson Mandela as written by Marianne Williamson.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?” Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
Pastor Dave concluded today by asking, “How are we at being God’s representative?”
