IF you maintain your point of reference - you will stay on course
What is the reference point for your life?
Christ Jesus as a reference point
Why do we bounce back and forth between Christ and culture as our reference point?
CHRIST vs. CULTURE: Faith a slice/piece of our life

CHRIST vs. CULTURE: We misunderstand how to use and apply the Bible correctly
CHRIST vs. CULTURE: We “cherry pick” from the Bible and culture to help fulfill our dreams and desires

CHRIST vs. CULTURE: Current life circumstances and state of mind guide us
CHRIST vs. CULTURE: We want to avoid conflict and suffering

CHRIST vs. CULTURE: Christian sacrifice is hard
"The Jesus Way”

WWJHUD: “What would Jesus have us do?”
Applying “the Jesus Way” can be messy
How do we navigate the mess by living out “The Jesus Way?”

Constant course correction required while using the right tools

Know how to use and apply the Bible correctly
APPLYING BIBLE CORRECTLY: Turn to the Sermon on the Mount often (Matthew 5-7)
APPLYING BIBLE CORRECTLY: Know and understand the difference between living in the Old Self verses New Self
Crucified with Christ and I no longer live but Christ lives in me (Galatians 2:20)
APPLYING BIBLE CORRECTLY: Avoid mixing Old Covenant with the New Covenant
LLJ Principle: Love Like Jesus

What does loving like Jesus require of me?
God’s Spirit always push us towards kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness and self-control
Christ or culture? What’s your reference point?
