It would seem in our current Western
culture that the Christian faith is often
treated like a team jersey: Something
to put on to show your support on
game day but unsuitable for all
occasions. The idea that faith in Jesus
affects a person’s day-to-day choices
seems increasingly naive and outdated
in today’s hyper-individualized society.
Developing a sticky faith in Jesus
requires that we believe and trust
that Jesus is who the Bible says he is
and that he did what the Bible says he did.
But how do we develop and nurture a faith in Jesus that is sticky? It begins with a sticky identity. We know what the Bible says about Jesus, but what does it say about you? “Who am I?” is one of the most important questions a person will ask -- and they may spend their entire life trying to answer. If you want to develop a sticky faith in your own life and help others around you do the same, you must come to “grip” with your identity -- who you are in Christ Jesus.
Join us this Sunday and discover the Bible’s answer to your question, “Who am I?”
