Initiated or Baptised?

, ,

Where do we as ‘Jesus-friends’ get our identity and values from?
Our friends? Our family? Our music? Our culture? Our language? Our faith?

27 young men died tragically this week in cultural initiation ceremonies in Mpumalanga. Parliament is debating the issue of cultural practices today. Being a Christ follower is not always easy you may have noticed?

Sometimes there are moments when our friends/family/music/culture has values that are different from those Jesus encourages us to follow:

Western Materialism vs Generosity?
Male dominance vs Equality?
Ancestors vs One High Priest?

Read Galatians #v27-29 here:

Jesus, help us to identify which values align with how you lived and to leave behind the values which don’t.
