Finding True Value

October 2, 2020

Dear Cathedral Family,

For by Him all things were created…
all things have been created through Him and for Him.

Colossians 1:16

How are you doing on this journey we’ve been taking over the last couple of weeks? Are you MIND BLOWN yet?

When I think of the way God has woven Dr. Glen Schultz into our lives and the ministry of Cathedral, I could not be more grateful. God truly does work all things for our good!

I hope that you’re beginning to see life more clearly through the lens of a biblical perspective and that your worldview is starting to align more with the truth we find in God’s Word. Don’t be surprised if the shift begins to show up in your actions and attitudes without your even realizing it. Remember, this journey is not about information; it’s about transformation! And that excites me!

The truth that Dr. Schultz laid out last Sunday, that…

“every person has inherent (essential, permanent) value and intrinsic (genuine, real, true) worth because each one is an image bearer of God”

…has the potential to transform life as we know it!

It addresses the way we see ourselves, the way we see others, and, in turn, how we treat one another. Imagine how different our entire world would be if we lived out of this reality! Loving God and loving people would be our new normal!

Struggling with a sense of your own value and identity? That same truth applies.

That same truth exposes the lie that we could ever find purpose or significance in what we do or what we have. If you wonder why you’ve made it this far and still don’t feel fulfilled, why you don’t feel a sense of substance, and why you don’t feel your value or your worth, and you keep searching for it outside somewhere – take a moment to let this wonderful truth sink in:

Your value has been given to you by your Creator.
You were created in the image of God!

You have value! Period. End of story. Well, actually, it’s the beginning.

I can’t wait for you to hear what Dr. Glen Schultz has for us this Sunday! If you missed either of the first two messages in the MIND BLOWN series, be sure to watch or listen before this weekend. We’re continuing to build on a foundation as we move forward in this life-changing, perspective-shifting series.

We’ll be worshipping together on Sunday in-person at 9am and 11am and via Facebook live and Livestream at 11am.

Wherever you are today, I encourage you to keep saying “YES” to the journey. I’m confident that God is equipping us to BE THE CHURCH that brings Him glory in astounding, culture-changing ways.

Let’s do this!
