Identity - Week 21

Most adults of working age are familiar with the terms Profit and Loss (P&L) and Return on Investment (ROI). In our dog-eat-dog society, profit always seems to be the bottom line. Success today is measured by profit. In many cases this profit obtained by any means necessary and often at the expense of others. Culturally, if we're not careful we can easily be driven by what we have left at the end of the day. At the end of the day what's the return on my investment? Is there a profit?

Followers of Christ have come to appreciate the personal investment that Jesus Christ has made in each of our lives. But the Bible is clear that He also expects a return on His investment. A profit! God expects us to live profitable lives. What does that look like? How will God measure a profitable life? We'll explore these questions today. We'll also take a look at key biblical truths that will hopefully make God's standard of measurement crystal clear to you and simple to follow.

What's left at the end of our lives will be presented to the Father and will be Christ's return on investment in us. Will there be a profit?
