    Identity // Healthier Relationships

     

    Matthew 22:36-40 NIV

    36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” 37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

     

    1) What is STEWARDSHIP of SELF?

     

    Stewardship - noun. the responsible overseeing and protection of something considered worth caring for and preserving.

     

    1 Corinthians 13:4-7 NIV

    4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

     

    Mark 12:28-31 NIV

    28 One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?” 29 “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.

    Matthew 7:6 NIV

    6 “Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.

     

    Ephesians 5:31 NIV

    31 “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.”

     

    James 5:16 NIV

    16 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

     

    3) What/Who Really is Your SOURCE?

     

    Jeremiah 17:5-6a NIV

    5 This is what the Lord says: “Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who draws strength from mere flesh and whose heart turns away from the Lord. 6a That person will be like a bush in the wastelands; they will not see prosperity when it comes.

     

    Philippians 4:19 NIV

    19 And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.

    2. What is Healthy SHARING?

    3. What/ Who Really is Your SOURCE?

     

    Questions:

     

    1. What is stewardship of self? What does it really mean to love yourself in the Biblical definition?

    2. Do you feel like you have a slant toward unhealthy sharing (it could be over sharing with people that haven’t earned trust or isolating and not sharing at all.) If so, what is one way you can work on being healthier at sharing?

    3. What or who is the source of your life? How do you know? How will you keep this in check?

    Identity // What’s In A Name                                                                                                                       

     

    Genesis 2:19-20 NIV

    19 Now the Lord God had formed out of the ground all the wild animals and all the birds in the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. 20 So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds in the sky and all the wild animals.

     

    1. We have the power to name.

     

    Genesis 2:18 NIV

    18 The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”

     

    EZER - someone who comes when you cry for help. Deliverer.


     

    2. There is power in whose names we accept.

     

    Genesis 2:18-22 NIV

    18 The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” 19 Now the Lord God had formed out of the ground all the wild animals and all the birds in the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. 20 So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds in the sky and all the wild animals. But for Adam no suitable helper was found. 21 So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh. 22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.

     

    Genesis 3:20 NIV

    20 Adam named his wife Eve, because she would become the mother of all the living.

     

    3. There is Power in His Name.

     

    John 1:11-13 NIV

    11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God — 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.

     

    John 14:12-14 NIV

    12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

     

    Exodus 3:4-6a NIV

    4 When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, “Moses! Moses!” And Moses said, “Here I am.” 5 “Do not come any closer,” God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.” 6a Then he said, “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.”

     

    1. We have the power to name.

    2. There is power in whose names we accept.

    3. There is power in His Name.

     

    Questions

    1. Is there something in your life (past or present) that you need to reframe and rename? What is your plan for doing that?

    2. What are names that have been given to you? Whose names are you needing to reject and whose names for you do you want to embrace?

    3. What does “in the name of Jesus” really mean and how should we be living this out?

    Proverbs 18:20-21 NIV

    Matthew 12:34b-35 NASB

    34b For the mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart. 35 The good man brings out of his good treasure what is good; and the evil man brings out of his evil treasure what is evil.


     

    2. Our Cognition

     

    Genesis 3:1-5 NIV

    1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?” 2 The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 3 but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’” 4 “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. 5 “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

     

    Genesis 3:6-11 NIV

    6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. 7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for  themselves. 8 Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the Lord God among the trees of the garden. 9 But the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?” 10 He answered, “I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.” 11 And he said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?”

    Genesis 3:6-7 NIV

    6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it.
