Descripción

If God has a perfect vision for your life, why does spiritual growth seem so difficult? Pastor and bestselling author John Ortberg has some intriguing answers to that question, and he has organized his thoughts and God's words into a straightforward and timely guide for living your best life in The Me I Want to Be. In this study you will learn how God's perfect vision for you starts with a powerful promise. All those who trust in God "will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit" (Jeremiah 17:7-8). Ortberg urges you to recognize your brokenness, understand that God is the project manager, and follow His directions. He also helps gauge your spiritual health and measure the gap between where you are now and where God intends you to be. The Me I Want To Be Participant’s Guide is a guidebook to the great task and joy of your life … becoming God’s best version of you. Designed for use with the video.

Discovering the Spirit

Your flourishing is never just about you. It is a so that kind of condition. God designed you to flourish so that you could be part of his redemptive project in ways that you otherwise could not. He wants you to flourish so that people can be encouraged, gardens can be planted, music can be written, sick people can be helped, or companies can thrive in ways they otherwise would not. When you fail to become the person God designed, all the rest of us miss out on the gift you were made to give.

[Your Response]

In The Me I Want to Be, Ortberg says that a wise man suggested answering this spiritual life assessment by responding to two questions:

• Am I growing more easily discouraged these days?
