Jesus Take the Wheel

Jesus Take the Wheel

July 26, 2019

Greg wraps up his week continuing on the topic of how we perceive ourselves.  After driving a Mercedes for a week, Greg recognized some lessons to learn.  You will hear some encouragement about how to let go of allowing material things to be your identity.

How Do You Perceive Yourself?

How Do You Perceive Yourself?

July 25, 2019

Greg talks today about how we perceive ourselves.  Do you identify yourself by the clothes you wear or the car you drive?  Do you feel less of a person because you don’t have nice things?  Or do you feel more of a person because you do have more than others?  To God, it doesn’t matter.  He loves you either way.  He doesn’t care what kind of car you drive.  He only cares about what is in your heart. So, are you choosing your identity based on how you perceive yourself, how you think others perceive you, or how God perceives you?
