The sermon presented the concept of ‘self-focus’ at length.
Here are the three descriptions of self-focus presented in the sermon:
1. SELF-FOCUS operates when sin causes us to insert ourselves into the center of our world.
2. In SELF-FOCUS, I try to manipulate situations, locations, and relationships for my pleasure and comfort and preference.
3. SELF-FOCUS causes us to have a greater allegiance to our own kingdom than God’s Kingdom.
Why is trying really hard in my own strength to cast off self-focus not a viable solution?
How should we battle this joy-thief with Gospel truths and Spirit power?
Replacing Self-focus with Christ-centeredness in RELATIONSHIPS
How does self-focus lead to conflicted relationships?
READ Philippians 4:1-3.
Reflect on some conflicts you have witnessed among Christians.
