September Sermon Series “The Five Cs of Christian Character”.
A character can be a person in movie, book or play. If we are characters in life, what exactly is a “Christian” character? Another definition of character describes a person’s mental or moral qualities. What kinds of attitudes should we have? What is it that makes us who we are? Do we have character, or are we just ‘characters’?
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Christian character is about the original and true Christian character, Jesus Christ of Nazareth. First we keep Jesus in mind because he is uniquely qualified to show us what kind of character human beings were designed to be. He’s the first one to ever get ‘being human’ right!
It’s also essential to keep Jesus, especially his death on the cross, in front of us as well. Firstly because it is a very somber reminder that Christian or otherwise, human beings are flawed characters. Yet amazingly, and by God’s design and grace, He both absorbs our sin on the cross and forgives it.
Thankfully that’s not the end of the story; in fact having received the Holy Spirit in our baptism, it’s really only the beginning of God working on us. There’s a lot more to learn about Christian character. Come join us for our sermon series on character, and you’ll even get to meet a new character throughout the sermon series from LLG (Laura-Li Gaide) Video productions!
