RADIUS LAB 2015 : THE FOUR G’S
Have you ever felt like you needed to be in control? Have you ever feared man more than God? Have you ever tried to accumulate more stuff in order to be satisfied and happy? Have you ever felt the need to prove yourself through your grades, sports, achievements, or religious activity? Do you wish you knew how to fight sin better and become more like Jesus?
We believe that underlying every sinful response or negative emotion is a failure to believe one of four foundational truths about God. We call them the “Four G’s.”
God is great – so we don’t have to be in control.
God is good – so we don’t have to look elsewhere.
God is glorious – so we don’t have to fear others.
God is gracious – so we don’t have to prove ourselves.
The daily struggle of every disciple of Jesus is a struggle to believe that God is who he says he is. Behind every sin is a heart that is believing a lie about who God is. We must get to the lie beneath the sin and confront it with the truth of the Gospel. These four liberating truths offer an amazing tool for exposing our idols and addressing sin in our lives and in the lives of others. Ultimately, God has proven himself to be great, glorious, good, and gracious through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus.
These sessions remind us of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and learn how to preach these truths to our hearts every day. The messages show how the Gospel of Jesus gives us a foundation for believing these four truths, and how believing these truths roots our hope in the enduring approval we have from God through the finished work of Jesus.
