The Freedom to be Imperfect

August 12, 2018 Pastor: Dr. Jeffrey D. Hoy Series: Freedom

Verse: Hebrews 12:1–12:2

Are you the sort of person that has to have things ‘just so,’ or it’s just not good enough? Do you fail to finish projects or ideas because they are never good enough? Or struggle to get started for fear it won’t be perfect? Do you tend to think in all-or-nothing terms—all ‘in’ or all ‘out’? Do you use the word ‘should’ a lot and set high standards for yourself and others? Do you tend to fixate on the things that messed up? You might be a perfectionist. It is a peculiar label because it may help land you a job or attract a relationship, but it also might cause you to lose one. In some ways, we probably all struggle with perfectionism, but for some it can be quite debilitating. Especially in our spiritual lives.

What does the Bible say about perfection? What does the Bible call us to pursue? In what ways do we risk getting bogged down or entangled by the temptation to be perfect? Is this the freedom that God wants for us? Join us at Faith Fellowship as we engage the truth of God about freedom and what the Bible has to say about the “Freedom to be Imperfect.”
