Better - Week 2
Most of us want this year to be better. But “better” requires a bit of honest and awkward evaluation. So what are you holding onto that’s holding you back?

If we just do what we've always been doing, we're gonna get the same results year after year after year.
What are you holding onto that's holding you back?
What is weighing you down because you refuse to let it go?
What is slowing you down because you just won't put it down?
What are you holding onto that you kind of feel compelled to keep hidden?
What are you holding onto that's making a monkey out of you?
Let go of the banana and run away!
By holding on, you're holding off the people who love you the most.
Following Jesus will actually make your life better and it will actually make you better at life
Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey ---

Romans 6:16 NIV
whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience (to God), which leads to righteousness.

Romans 6:16 NIV
Sin in the New Testament is so simple to understand.

Sin in the New Testament is anything that hurts you. And anything that hurts the you beside you.
Sin kills.


Obedience makes things right.
Doing what's right when it's hard is what makes things and what keeps things right.
But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you have come to obey from your heart the pattern of teaching that has now claimed your allegiance.

Romans 6:17 NIV
We are to love because we are loved.
Do you not know that your bodies are temples

of the Holy Spirit who is in you.

1 Corinthians 6:19 NIV
First-century people believed a temple is where Heaven meets Earth.

The Apostle Paul says, "Exactly. God has done something radically new, ... something so radical that people have become more sacred than sacred sites. Because they're filled with the Holy Spirit who is in you."
You are not your own;
you were bought at a price.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 NIV
Economics 101


The perceived value of a thing is what it will bring.
You were purchased.

There was a price put on you, and the price determines your value in the eyes of God.

And the price that God paid for you and paid for me was His son.


What has the thing you're clinging to offered for you?
You are not your own;
you were bought at a price.
Therefore honor God with your bodies.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 NIV
We honor God by honoring those that God honors.
What are you holding onto that's holding you back?
What are you holding onto that's holding you back from being able to have a clear conscience with your Father in Heaven?
Ask someone.


Am I holding onto something that's holding me back?"
Don't be mastered by anything or anyone.


You already have a Master.
Take hold of the one who brought you back and bought you back and who will lead you to life that he describes as abundant, extraordinary, and as the
Apostle Paul would later write, life that is truly life.
What are you holding onto that's holding you back?
