Wellness Habits: A Road to Personal Wholeness -  Part 1 of 5  

Hebrew Text: Jeremiah 18:1-11, Greek Text: Luke 14:25-33

Sermon Title: Wellness Habit #1 “Start Letting Go”: “Pack Light & Travel Light” 


The state of personal wholeness is not an end point, a place or a destination we arrive at and be done with. It’s an ongoing journey that has no ending - a state of being and becoming. Along the way, we are being moulded and changed. The Prophet Jeremiah describes this on-going series of personal transformations with the relationship between the potter and the clay. The desire of the Potter is to shape the clay into most wonderful and beautiful work of art. So, the potter’s wheel never stops turning as his hands continue to mould the clay. God is the Potter and we are the clay. It’s best to let God shape us into someone whom he has conceived from the beginning; beautifully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139). God knows best. So, let God shape us! Let it go! A road to wholeness requires us to consistently live out a habit of letting go. Jesus said, “let it go” and “follow me.” We are all embarking on a long journey towards wholeness. “Pack light, --- so you can travel light.”
