IMPACT195 School of Ministry Pastor, Scott Wessell, continues his series "Lies that Christians believe" by talking a pervasive idea that God wants you to be the best you that you can be. It's as if God does home improvement for our souls. He puts a fresh coat of paint up, reorganizes the furniture to make us better. But the Bible teaches something different. Galatians 2:20 "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me..." and 2 Corinthians 5:17 "If anyone is in Christ he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold all things have become new." The truth is that God doesn't want to improve you; he wants to kill you! You and I were so messed up that God's answer was to crucify us with Christ and cause the old us to pass away and die and he replaces it with the new life of his son. God doesn't want to make you the best you that you can be, he wants to make you the best Jesus that you can be. Stop trying to be an extraordinary you and start being an extraordinary Jesus to those around you. For more information on the School of Ministry click on the SCHOOL button on the top of the page.
