NEW NVP SERMON VIDEO FOR 2/24 - "BECOME WHAT YOU WANT TO BE."
Dr. Peale once wrote, "To find life full of meaning, live a bigger and better life. A tremendous text tells us this. Hang on to Mark 1:17, because it is worth its weight in gold. The text begins, 'Come with Me! I will teach you...' His words are very meaningful, for Jesus is working to teach us, to get people to become new creations, our true selves.
You have a self. I have a self. But the problem is, lots of people have never entered into their true selfhood. They have been only part of themselves, they have put on false, misleading pseudo-selves; they have tried to become somebody else. Trying to gain acceptance, many people put together a composite self made of often conflicting, self-defeating components.
But almighty God put in us this urge to be genuine, remade in His image. You are never going to be released and happy, you are never going to be successful, until you are yourself at its best, your whole self, bigger than you have ever been before. And the Lord tells us how to do it, 'Come with Me! I will teach you...'
Form a picture of what you want to become, what you want yourself to be, and be it.You may protest that there are so many circumstances playing on you, so many difficulties, so many adversities, so many resistances, that to think you could do these great things with yourself is just wishful thinking. But I wonder if it isn't possible to becomes, with the help of God, anything you want yourself to be."
Join us on 2/24 between 11:30am and 3pm for the film "Become What You Want To Be." It will be shown throughout the day. The Museum and prayer chapel will also be open all day.
