Series: Outta My Mind
Topic: Part 4 – Inner Critic
Speaker: Steve Cuss, Guest Speaker
Date: October 2, 2022
Overview: In this message, Steve talked about the different gospels, or belief systems, that can affect our perspective and way of thinking. Often times, these “gospels” distort our ability to keep our focus on the Gospel— the truth that God loved us to the point of sending Christ to die for our sins on the cross. So what is the truth that we are believing about ourselves? Steve discussed how our “inner critic” offers insight into which truth we are truly believing. What is your inner critic speaking to you? Is it a belief that you have to earn the love and grace of God, or is it the truth that God has freely given this to you? As we wrap up this series, lets remind ourselves of the truth of the true Gospel.
- What are some different truths that you believe about yourself? How do the different people and situations in your life influence what you believe about yourself?
- What are some of the truths that God speaks about us through Scripture?
- How do the truths that God speaks to you compare to the truths that you are actually believing? Why do you think it can be hard for you to always believe the truths that God speaks about you
- What steps can you take to replace the false truths that you are believing about yourself with the truths that God speaks to you? As your parents, how can we help remind you of God’s truth?
