We're "RESETTING" our lives for 2013. GCC has already addressed the issues of TIME and RELATIONSHIPS, so before you shift gears into this weekend's topic (Resetting Your BODY) enjoy this amazing video our media team created for last weekend's services.
This weekend's topic is RESET YOUR BODY. We'll consider what the Bible says about the impact of physical reality in a Facebook-world of virtual relationships and on-line community.
Here's a question for you:
In a society that's happy to sing along with Brad Paisley's, "I'm So Much Cooler On-line," is there any reason to ever show up physically? Is there any value in putting your actual physical "BODY" in an environment, relationship or activity? Why not simply live a virtual life?
Romans 12:1-2 - So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.
