I Like Big Buts!

IMG_0019Just one “t” in that word by the way and that one word, “but,” was a BIG word in our sermon on Sunday at Element Church.

We concluded our sermon series called “Labels”, based out of 1 Peter 2:9-11.  We’ve been talking about how when we clearly know who we are and whose we are, we can live in the freedom of our true identity.  In this series we looked at the labels that we are “Chosen” by God, “Royal Priests” (Adopted into God’s family), “A holy nation” and finally “Strangers” in this land.

I preached from the story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in Daniel 3:7-30 and we said, “Being a stranger doesn’t mean you have to be strange; it just means you need to stand out.”  We asked the question, “What does it take to stand out in this world?”

In this clip here, I talk about the importance of knowing Who you are standing in!  The three young men in this story knew their true identity and it was something the king could not take away from them.  You can watch full sermons HERE.
