Home Team: Pt 1 You Have Made the Cut
Message Summary: With Jesus, you have made the cut, you’re on His team! No more condemnation. Jesus’ kingdom is where everyone is equal and invited to enter. It’s a choice you make to believe Jesus Christ died to set you free from shame, guilt, insecurity, and regret. Do you want God’s presence or absence in your life? He also wants you to let go of pride and live a humble life. He wants you to stop feeling so independent and be dependent on His Spirit, heavenly principles, and His church body. You were created for community. There is strength and power in community. We are stronger together as His body on this earth, when we are in community.
1. How do we remind ourselves that there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus?
2. What makes it hard for you to be part of a community?
3. What are the benefits of being in community?
4. This fall, how are you going to be an example of being in community?

1 Peter 5:5 NIV – All of you clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”
Galatians 3:28 NIV – There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male or female, for we are all one in Christ Jesus.
