Matt talked about how Christ elevates certain gifts within us to set us apart and make us holy. These gifts are kind of like super powers!
If you could have any super power, what would it be?
Do you think there are any virtues (kindness, honesty, wisdom, justice, courage, etc.) inside you that God is elevating and making super? What would it look like to live out that super power to serve God?
It was another beautiful morning worshiping with you. We love the community forming in The Chapel!

The Chapel’s mission project is being moved from July 12th to July 26th. Mark it on your calendars and we'll have more information soon!
What if our faith is something that doesn’t just inspire us, but actually elevates us to new levels and give us supernatural abilities that we would not have had without the Holy Spirit?
As followers of Christ, we’re called to be set apart. We’re called to be different. We are extraordinary people by virtue of what God can do in us and through us. If you’re in a relationship with Christ, you are called to be holy.
Holiness is not something that we achieve on our own. In fact, that would be impossible. The way we can be made holy is through Christ working in us and elevating virtues in us in a way we could not possibly do on our own. He has the power to transform us and heighten within us gifts we may not even know we have.
Therese de Lisieux is an excellent example of someone who Christ has elevated. After having a vision from God, she realized that the deepest calling she has in life is to love. She didn’t feel like she was particularly good at anything, but she knew she could love.
Therese's elevated sense of wisdom, which came not from herself but from God, lead her to live in an incredible way. In her daily life she began asking this very important question: in every moment, what does love demand?
We all have the opportunity to be elevated by God. Start by asking that question in your own daily life: what does love demand in this situation?
1 Kings 3:9 says Give your servant therefore an understanding mind to govern your people, able to discern between good and evil; for who can govern this your great people?
Let bolded parts of that scripture become your prayer.
We hope to see you next week as we look at elevated justice.
