Spiritual Renewal

Stuart Briscoe

There is an ongoing decline in morality in our contemporary society, and every day you can read about another situation where faith is being pushed out of public life. Behavior and choices that were once unthinkable are now being celebrated, and those who live by God’s Word are often labeled intolerant.

The church has an opportunity to be a spiritual and moral leader and counteract this downward spiral, but often it remains ineffective. Yet is there a role for us as individual believers?

In this series from Colossians 3, Stuart teaches how truly understanding and embracing our faith and identity in Christ can help not only reawaken and revive our churches, but also make a positive impact on today’s culture.

Messages From This Series:

It is generally agreed that the Western world is in need of spiritual revival. Historically, cultures have been revived when the church has been renewed. But the church is renewed one believer at a time. So let us pursue personal renewal beginning with a renewed focus.

Scripture: Colossians 3:1-3:4

The orientation of much modern spirituality is inward. That of Christian spirituality is upward and outward. Not that the inward is neglected but it requires a focus on "things above" to motivate and empower us to discipline what we find within ourselves.

Scripture: Colossians 3:5-3:8

Robert Burns, the Scottish poet, wrote, "Oh that God the gift would give us, to see ourselves as others see us." This can be helpful—and devastating! But what really matters is that we see ourselves from the divine perspective. This view yields a true self image!

Scripture: Colossians 3:9-3:11
