Title: Be True to Yourself
Scripture: Genesis 1:26-27
Speaker: Tim Spanburg,

I. You should be true to yourself
>> First, God was personally involved in creating you.
>> Second, You are made in the likeness of God.
II. If you are only true to yourself, you will never love yourself
1. We do not know what we want.
2. Our culture dictates what we want.
3. There will be no lasting affirmation.
"You can’t ultimately say to yourself, I don’t care that everyone I know thinks I’m a monster. I love myself and that is all that matters. That would not convince us of our worth, unless we were mentally unsound. We need someone from outside to say we are of great worth, and the greater the worth of the person telling us so, the more powerful that recognition is to our identity formation. So if we try to authenticate and validate ourselves, we place ourselves in an infinite loop of delusion that will lead to either narcissism or self-loathing." - Tim Keller
III. Be true to your maker
1. Your desires are given context.
2. Your identity is received, not achieved.
3. You can know you are loved.
