SERIES NAME: MY RED-FLAGS
SERIES BOTTOM LINE: DEALING WITH PERSONAL PROBLEMS BEFORE THEY LEAD TO
Before a problem in a relationship becomes a problem, it tends to be a personal problem. Issues that are present in relationships are a result of one party not paying attention to an issue they have in their life which then affects both parties in the relationship.
We look for red flags in other people’s lives. Red flags are things that are unhealthy in someone that must be dealt with otherwise we will walk away. What if we stop paying attention to the red flags that are in other people and we start paying more attention to the red flags in us?
In scripture, the responsibility of change is first of all on the work of the Holy Spirit in partnership with the person that needs the help. We are the ones responsible for allowing the Holy Spirit to work in our lives so we truly experience transformation. However, the Holy Spirit doesn’t work alone, he works in partnership with us.
In this sermon series, the hope is that people will pay attention to things that are present in their own lives that can ruin the relationships they are in or may someday be in. We hope people can examine their lives to see where they need help and allow God to work in them so they can be a blessing to the relationships they are in or they will be in.
Anyone who has ruined a relationship because of the red flags they overlooked, can find hope in Christ because God takes the broken things and makes beautiful things out of them.
