Reset: Life Changing | Part 3

How do you experience a life change that actually changes your life? Last week we looked at how to break free from the destructive habits in our life. But how do we actually experience the deep transformation that we long for? In the conclusion of Reset, we discover the necessary context for us to have, not just a momentary change but a sustained life change in Christ.

Teaching Notes

HOW DO YOU HIT THE RESET BUTTON ON YOUR LIFE?

 

Reset is possible because in Christ you have a new STARTING POINT.

Reset requires a rhythm of consistently setting your mind on THINGS ABOVE.

Reset means doing whatever is necessary to cut out DESTRUCTIVE HABITS.

 

How do you experience life change that actually changes your life?

 

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

 

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Colossians 3:12-17
