That and many other labels are where so many of us are stuck in our lives. Sunday at Element Church we started a new sermon series called “Labels: Living in our true identity.” In this series we’re going to break free from the labels people give us or the labels we give ourselves and live inside the labels that only Jesus can give us. The whole series is based on 1 Peter 2:9-11 and we’re looking at four labels Peter tells these Roman Christians that they are in Christ. The first label we looked at is “Chosen”. We said “God’s choice of me is not based on who I am it’s based on what He’s done.”

I preached from 1 Peter 1:1-2 and we asked the question, “What should I know about God’s choice?” Through the message we unpacked that God chose us inside of our shortcomings, in spite of our sins and to be set free! In the clip below is my introduction, where we introduce the idea of labels that we struggle with, combined with my closing where we talk about being set free. You can watch full sermons HERE!
