“Seeing myself as God sees me and living my life accordingly”, that sums up the essence of the teaching series Selfie.
The aim of the series is both to challenge and to encourage. The topics each week:
Selfish – the spirit of the age
Selfless – the Spirit of God
Self-promotion – taking my place in the queue.
Self-image – seeing myself how God sees me) and week 5 (Self-aware – knowing God’s calling on my life).
The tension is provided by highlighting the current trend towards self-obsession and setting it against the selflessness of Christ. The thrust is not to simply deny the importance of ‘self’ but to bring balance to our understanding of the importance of self.
