We are Beloved - Beloved Passion

When we embrace our belovedness we also need to demonstrate the same passion as Jesus did for the marginalized. Scripture: John 2:13-22 Key Points 1. Part of being beloved is recognizing the sacred value of our bodies and honoring them as such. 2. Passion, then, must be an inherent part of belovedness since our belovedness is the expression of God’s deep love within us. 3. Recognizing God’s passion within us will allow us to live out the call- ing in our lives for others. Self-Reflective Thoughts for the Week Ahead 1. Knowing your body is a temple for God, how can this shape your view of yourself? 2. How is having passion and knowing you are beloved connected in your life? 3. What would it look like if you lived your life with passion as a be- loved disciple?

Listen to Him! It is a message from God that as Disciples we are called to be listeners in this world. When we listen we clearly hear are calling to love and worship God. It is also in listening that we will hear the Gospel message and go and share that message with the world. Key Points Disciples are called to listen to Jesus. Listening to Jesus leads to us knowing we are beloved. Listening requires being still, unplugged, patient, and giving Jesus control.

How do you listen to Jesus and what makes this listening a challenge? How many times does God tell you that you are beloved before you can hear this news? Scripture: Mark 9: 2 - 9
