Who Do You Aspire to be? | Karlyna Gelderman

Sunday, August 13, 2023


What do you want to be when you grow up?

  • We all heard this question when growing up
  • So often, we have no idea what we want to do or be...
  • sometimes this question frustrates or stresses us out

What do we strive for when we don't feel like we have a goal?

  • As Christians, we DO have something to strive for!

1 John 1:5-7 "This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all[a] sin."

  • God is LIGHT 
  • Walk in the Light!

How you act shows you what path you're walking on...

  • Do our actions line up with where we want to go?

Who do you aspire to be?

  • As Christians, we should all want to be like Jesus!

"I wanna be in the LightAs You are in the LightI wanna shine like the starsIn the HeavensOh, Lord be my lightAnd be my Salvation'Cause all I want is to be in the LightAll I want is to be in the Light" (In the Light, DC Talk)

Honestly reflect on your own life... make course corrections if needed...

Walk towards God - better fellowship with God and with eachother.

Refuse to settle to be Christians who just go with the flow!
