When you study the Word of God, don’t make the mistake of approaching it as a dead textbook. It is the living Word of the Living God. Don’t study it to simply learn more about the Word, read it and study it in order to connect with the One who IS the Word, Jesus Christ!
Sin is something we have all dealt with and fought against. At times, the fight against sin can seem like a losing battle. The bad news is that until we get to heaven, we will face the temptations of the world and the flesh… we will have to deal with the presence of sin in our lives.
But there is good news!
Just because we face the presence of sin in our lives doesn’t mean we have to succumb to the power of sin. Your fight with sin doesn’t have to be a losing battle.
“Christianity is the story of how the rightful King has landed, you might say in disguise, and is calling us all to take part in His great campaign of sabotage.”
We live in difficult times. On one hand, it is greatest time in history. Technology has made things possible that previous generations could only dream of. On the other hand, it seems that the nature of man continues to darken. We experience evil on a daily basis. For Christians, the question we must ask is this: How can we remain faithful to God when faced with evil. What can we do to accomplish His purposes on the earth and see the gospel of the Kingdom spread.
The world is asking questions that we have the answers to. But if we become just like the world, how will they ever hear us? In this message I share how we can remain faithful in the face of evil and how we can share the answers of Jesus Christ with a world searching for hope.
Powerful Truth #3
In this video, we look at the third truth that will ignite your life: You Are Under A Better Covenant, The Covenant Of Grace!
This “2 Minute Truth” video (which is almost 4 minutes long) briefly explores the powerful truth that you and I are under the covenant of God’s grace. When you grasp this deep in your soul, it changes EVERYTHING!
When we struggle to overcome sin, we often think more rules are the solution to keeping it in check. Yet the harder we try, the more we seem to fall. In moments of failure, it’s easy to feel hopeless like overcoming sin is an impossible ideal. Have you ever been there?
This is because many don’t understand how the Christian life is supposed to work. God did not give Christians His Spirit and grace so they can struggle to overcome sin in their own strength. God’s grace was given to us so that He can empower us to overcome sin and live godly lives.
“Are you satisfied being filled with good information about God, or do you long to burst into His manifest presence?”
