Selfie: #anewself

Most of us get excited about the idea of new. We want new. We hunger for new. We’ll stand in line for new. We anticipate new. And we will make an investment in new. That’s why we approach church the way we do here at Connect. We believe that church should look like a party, not a funeral. When the church gathers, God shows up. And that gets us fired up, because God makes everything new. If you get excited about new stuff, then there is nothing more exciting than God because that’s exactly what He does. He makes everything new.

Selfie: #selfdenial

As a disciple of Jesus, my comfort is not my first priority. My security is not my first priority. My preference is not my first priority. An easy, carefree, problem-free life is not my first priority. Because I am not my first priority. Following Jesus means denying myself. It means that He is my first priority.

“Humility is not thinking less of yourself but thinking of yourself less.” Both selfishness and humility begin in our heart, but they both spill out into our lives. All you have to do is watch what a person does.
