INSTANT TAKEAWAYS

1 | YOU ARE A UNIQUE CREATION

God has designed you with intentionality and purpose. He wove you together in your Mother’s womb and He knows every hair on your head; He knows you better than you do! Will grew up searching for an identity and trying to identify what masculinity meant to him. The beautiful thing about that is, we’re found in Christ. Culture will tell us we have to act a certain way, participate in certain things, and look a right way. But He doesn’t care about any of that. He has designed us to love and be loved, and that’s what He cares about. There’s no need to put this undue pressure on yourself to reach cultural norms. Embrace who you are, who God designed you to be.

2 | WE’RE MEANT TO ADAPT

God doesn’t want us to stay in our comfort zones. He hasn’t promised us an easy or a quiet life. That’s not to say he’s intentionally making things difficult for us, but there is no growth without a little bit of discomfort. God places us in all kinds of situations that are for our benefit, regardless of how we feel internally about it. He wants us to adapt, grow, and become more like Him. Think about the different relationships you’ve built in your life and the opportunities you have to build others with those around you now. Don’t limit yourself to what feels safe and secure. Embrace the unknown and the uncomfortable because He has promised He will bring us through it.

SHOW NOTES

Welcome to another episode in our Identity series here on Uncharted. Today we have a very special guest, our very own Marriage Pastor from Mission Hills, Will Cunningham. Will is a true modern-day renaissance man in every sense.

He is a gifted storyteller, a well-read Christian student, a loving father, grandfather, and husband as well as a brilliant camp counselor, among many other things. Listen in today as Tyler and Neil dive into Will’s upbringing in the Ozarks, his love for the great outdoors, and his unique perspective on mentorship and discipleship.
