So many of us never want to recognize or claim the baggage in our lives. Most would rather carry it around, learning to live with unresolved expectations, unfulfilled dreams, and unrepented sin. We think we can handle it until it continues to pile on. If you are feeling overwhelmed this Holiday Season this series is just what you need. This Christmas we are here to help you deal with the baggage, claiming it and then releasing it from our lives.

When it comes to guilt, many of us naturally lean in one of two ways: we wallow in it by reliving the past, or we deny it by making excuses. In either instance, guilt is causing us to carry a heavy bag.
The apostle Paul reminds us that, because of Jesus, guilt is not a bag we need to carry anymore.

Carrying baggage as we travel for Christmas is better as a team sport! It’s overwhelming to be left standing alone with all of the luggage, right? In the same way, it’s a struggle to carry the baggage of our souls alone. We need help! We start with our first helper: surrender. The more we choose to surrender to God, the more He will lead us to peace with ourselves and others.

In This message, Pastor Josh helps us explore Proverbs 4 as we talk about the struggle of letting go of the baggage that burdens us.
God has given us people and systems designed to keep us on track and avoid picking that baggage back up.
