Coffee, photos, email—all are things that can be enhanced with the right filter.
Did you know your life can be enhanced by a filter, too? You can live a greater, purpose-filled life by replacing your default filter, a filter we all share. This filter is shaped by our brokenness due to fear, pain and shame.
Many people—even great leaders—struggle with the fear of failure and rejection. Painful memories and past failures also work against us emotionally. Then shame enters the picture. Shame uses these feelings against us—it tells us that instead of sometimes failing we are always a failure.
God has called us to be much more and to do more for His glory, so we must break this filter! But, how?
A New Filter
Believe it or not, we’ve had the answer for thousands of years. Christ gave us a new filter to live free: faith, hope, and love.
This is the filter we should view our lives through. It allows us to shake off the shackles of oppression and live truly free!
And, the larger truth in all of this is: We aren’t just free from something, we are free for something. We are free to set more people free.
If we want our ministries to grow and attract more people to Christ, we must make sure we are living truly free. As the Church, let’s commit to living free through Christ this year. Our mission is too great to continue to live with our default filter.
