What Makes Us Unique?

1 Peter 2:9-10, Romans 8:14

Today I want to address the values that drive me. As your pastor, I want you to know where we are going, and why we’re going that direction.

Values are

*what is valuable to our church. (if we aren’t reflecting this value, we’re not a church)

*attitudes & qualities we never sacrifice. (I’ll resign before I give in on this)

*assumptions that guide our actions. (this is so basic to me, I almost do it without thinking)

*confirmed by our actions NOT by our words. (show me your day planner and your checkbook, and I’ll tell you what your values are)

Values enable us to

*formulate goals & set direction

*demonstrate our convictions & priorities

* reflect our distinctiveness

Values We Can Adopt From 1 Peter 2:9-10:

1. S ignificance Each of us is

*loved by God

* important to His kingdom

2. P otential Each of us is

* empowered by the Holy Spirit

* capable of fruitful ministry

3. I ntimacy Each of us is capable of intimacy

*with God

2)created to commune with God

*with each other

2) we are needed by each other

4. R elevance Everything we do

*is meaningful towards your growth

*makes a difference in God’s kingdom

5. I llumination To each of us

For as many as are led by the SPIRIT of God, these are sons of God.
