    How Do I REALLY See God Seminar – Jan 27, 2018

    9:00am to 12:30pm

    ˜™Seminar topics covered are:

    HOW WE SEE GOD

    In our infancy and childhood, mothers and fathers model a picture of God for us. We “see” what God is like by how they act and what they do. We interpret each succeeding experience through the lens of judgements we make and the expectations we develop as a result of what has happened in the past. The more judgements we make, the more our view of life and God is distorted. By the time we reach adulthood, our minds may have been taught that God loves and desires to bless us, but our hearts say, “Oh, yeah? He’s just like Dad (or Mum).” We are not capable of seeing life as it really is—experiences with our parents have given us ‘tinted spectacles’— until confession, repentance, forgiveness, death on the cross to the old way of seeing, and the gift of a new heart and mind enable us to see God clearly.

    IDENTIFICATIONS OF LOVE

    On our own, we are not capable of loving as God loves. When we try to love in our flesh, we limit love’s expression. God wants to bring our versions of love to death on the cross. This teaching is about identifications of love. These identifications are ‘packages’ of specific words, gestures, actions and attitudes that we deem to be love. Formed from childhood, these ‘packages’ are idols that define and limit our idea of what true love is; they almost assuredly deny us the full joy of giving and receiving it. When we demand our identifications of love from those around us, we defile the very relationships we value most. God desires to bring freedom to both receive and express His love in its many forms.  Heb 12 v 14-15
