Sermon Notes

Do failures define us?

  • Have you ever had an epic fail? 
  • Failures can be scary because they show our vulnerability.
  • Yet God uses us even when we fail.
  • God meets us when we are vulnerable and changes us.    
  • We then are no longer defined by failures, but by Christ. 

Taking risks lead us to discipleship and a deeper trust in Christ’s love.

  • Failures become opportunities that lead us to become who God intended us to be. 
  • Our bold risks and movement towards Christ can impact others.
  • Taking risks creates deeper trust in God’s grace. 
  • By acting in love we show who God has called us to be. 
  • We are called to be brave and get out of our comfort zone so that others know God’s love. 

Take a risk, move forward, for Christ is with you!
