Introduction:
Gender fluid is a fast growing term used for people who move from one gender to another and back again. These people feel on the inside an affinity to both sexes at different times. Other people have what is called Gender dysphoria - they feel that their gender is different from their biological gender. i.e a male trapped in a female body.

Then we have the life long issues surrounding the battle of the sexes; feminism, what it means to be male, female and equality.

These are all real people with real feelings, they are sons and daughters, brothers and sisters. They’re people who may have been sitting in the chair next to you. Each one of them is an image bearer of God, imbued with endless dignity and eternal worth.

So the question is how important is gender? Does this really matter? The bible tells us that Jesus is meant to be our image not our gender, so gender should not define us, or give us identity, but does that mean we should just throw it out all together or change it?


Key Verse:
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them (Genesis 1v27). There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's offspring, heirs according to promise (Gal 3v28-29).

 

Some Thoughts:
What does it mean to be made male and female? How does this reflect Gods image. How can we celebrate the sexes without falling into stereotypes? How can we maintain our belief in Gods creative plan whilst loving those who are different?

Strong Foundations - Genesis 29-31 - What kind of Christian?

Being a Christian isn’t always easy… If we truly want to live for Christ - it costs, we need perseverance, we need to be willing to let go of our life, and as Jesus said - we need to loose our life, if we want to truly find his. I have been asking myself - What Kind of Christians is the church producing today? Are we anything like the picture God had in mind? We want to portray the true gospel, and see real authentic Christians being disciples and looking to make other disciples, who are willing to come and be a living sacrifice and whose delight is Jesus....

Strong Foundations - Genesis 28 - Unseen God

Have you ever gone though life wondering where God is? It might not be that is was particularly a bad time of life, but you just couldn’t really see what God was doing?
