To Be List Sermon Series

We exist in a physical body so that we can interact with the material world around us. Our bodies have been specifically designed by God to take in information from the environment around us. We see, hear, taste, smell and touch the world around us. Our bodies enable us to interact with a physical experience. How we relate to our physical body is extremely important. When we do not take care of our physical body, there can be many consequences related to this.

There is also a non-physical aspect to our being, what some would call our MIND. Our thoughts, feelings and emotions are more than neurochemical changes and electrical discharges in our brain. The functioning of the brain is integral to the existence of our mind but that is not sufficient to explain it. Mind and body are intimately connected and each affects the other

The scriptures teach us that we have a third and even more amazing level of being, a SPIRIT. God created us as a three part being, much like himself. In our inmost being, we are spirit, the very breath of God. As a being with a spirit, it is possible for us to be in an intimate, spiritual union with our Creator who is also spirit.

Our lives are encompassed in various frameworks of RELATIONSHIPS. God lives in the full expression as Father, Son and Spirit. We too are called to live in relationship with him and with those around us. Healthy relationships strengthen our body, mind and spirit.

Motivation for doing the series: To offer something with a practical focus that can help to remind us of the following:

  • Scripture teaches that God designed us as multifaceted – with a body, mind, spirit, heart, and soul that make up our whole
  • Scripture shows us that all of these parts of us are made to love and serve Him .
  • We are called into a relationship with God that is rational (our minds), spiritual, emotional and
  • Worship isn’t just the “spiritual” things like reading our Bibles or It’s surrendering all of ourselves to God’s best for our lives.
  • Since every part of us has been given to us by God – our body, mind and souls are to be used and cared for wisely. We are called to ‘love others as we love ourselves’ – caring for our whole selves is part of the great commandment – we have a responsibility to maintain a good stewardship over our ‘whole-selves’.
  • Due to the inter-connectedness of our created selves, when we experience struggle/ challenge in one area of the self it can impact other aspects of the
  • The aim of the series is to be as practical as possible – offering an understanding of why a whole-health perspective is important and encouraging people to give thought to where they may want to pay attention in their own particular
  • Members should be encouraged to follow the sermon based notes as this is where there will be reflections/ activities to help with personal life-application.

The emphasis on ‘To Be’ is because God’s desire is for us to be journeying towards greater wholeness in all these areas. It is an intentional journey which we need to keep coming back to.
