What does it mean to be created by God? In our culture, we don’t often view ourselves as created beings. Instead, personal choice, autonomy, and individualism are ingrained in our identities. Yet the Scripture speaks a deeper, more hopeful truth. As created beings, we are dependent on God for life, purpose, identity, and direction. God not only created us in his image, he also recreated us through the redemptive work of Jesus Christ. We hope you will join us in this new series as we explore what it means for us as believers to put our feet on the solid ground of biblical truth in an ever-shifting world.
These daily readings will help prepare you for the upcoming teaching you will hear this weekend at Grace Church. These passages will create some context for the sermon by showing you Scriptures the author might be quoting and some passages that contain related ideas. Our hope is that as you follow this reading plan, it will help you become more defined and directed by Scripture.
