We kicked off a brand new teaching series at The Hills Church called, Sacred Selfie. In this series, we are reflecting on what we see when we look at our own selfies. When you look at your own image, what do you see? If you’re like most people, you see things that need fixed. You see the blemish and the bruises. You see the bags under your eyes. You see the extra few pounds you gained over the holidays.
Perhaps, if we’re honest, you see so much more than that though. Perhaps you see what’s going on behind your eyes. Perhaps you see the guilt and the shame of your past mistakes. Perhaps you see the pain and the trauma caused by betrayal, abuse, or neglect. Perhaps you see the sorrow of loneliness or depression. Whatever it is you see, if you’re like most people, you aren’t particularly fond of what you see when you look back on your own selfie.
But, what does God see? That’s the question we reflect on in this first installment of this four-part series. Thanks for checking it out. I am committing myself to doing better at posting each message and other encouraging words and reflections on this page through 2019. I welcome and appreciate your feedback.
