Transcript of 1 Corinthians 1:4-9

1 Corinthians 1:4-9
Our warped identities reveal hearts with Jesus amnesia.
1 Corinthians 1:4-9
Identity Crisis
In the Lost
Romans 1:18-19

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them.”
Romans 1:22-25

“22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. 24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.”
In the Believer
Understanding Grace
Titus 2:11-14

“11 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, 12 training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, 13 waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.”
Grace . . .
Enriched them with gifts so they were lacking nothing
Then confirmed salvation
Keeps them to the end
Called them into fellowship
Titus 2:15

“Declare these things; exhort and rebuke with all authority. Let no one disregard you.”

Our sense of who we are

Identity Costumes
Good Gifts Gone Bad
Powerful Purpose Made Small
One identity costume we put on spiritually is to make our gifts our identity.
Speech vs. 5
Knowledge vs. 5
Spiritual Gifts vs. 7
1 Corinthians 4:7-8

“For who sees anything different in you? What do you have that you did not receive? If then you received it, why do you boast as if you did not receive it? 8 Already you have all you want! Already you have become rich! Without us you have become kings! And would that you did reign, so that we might share the rule with you!”
Another identity costume we put on spiritually is to make life all about here.
1 Corinthians 15:12-13

“12 Now if Christ is proclaimed as raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised.”
Wait for Christ vs. 7
Sustained to the End vs. 8
1 Corinthians 1:4-9
Identity Rescue
A Living Illustration
Recovering Christ's Glory
1 John 3:1-2

“1 See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 2 Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is.”
Our warped identities reveal hearts with Jesus amnesia.
I am thankful I am a child of God because . . .
He meets all my needs
He accepts me
He makes me valuable
He loves me unrelentingly
He binds up my hurts
He gives me joy in the morning
He catches every tear
He hears every prayer
He puts strength in every stride
He never leaves me
He is not ashamed of me
He is made glorious in my weakness
