Betrayal is a fact of life, if you have anyone you are close to you are in jeopardy of being betrayed. How should we respond?
The one thing we always have to take into account when dealing with people is the culture through which they see the world. Thankfully, there are only two cultures we need to deal with…
The most common response to temptation is to run, and that isn’t always a bad thing! However, sometimes we won’t be able to run, we have to face temptation. When we learn to respond properly, we can overcome it!
The final message in our series, Renewal, this message focuses on the proof of our renewal; our actions.
Not only must we work to have our minds and spirits renewed and our hearts cleansed, we must also decide to change our attitude. Are you prepared to change your attitude in order to change your behavior?
Christians need a daily renewal of their spirit, unless they have achieved something even the Apostle Paul said he hadn’t achieved…perfection. In this message we look at why we need renewal, and what needs to be renewed.
One of the problems in our journey in the Christian life is to avoid conformity with the world. We do that by working in conjunction with the Holy Spirit to have our minds transformed, renewed. We just need to make sure we do that.
The process of changing, especially as it concerns our spiritual growth, is often difficult. It can, at times, seem like it is harder than something we can bear. It can be tempting to quit. However, we should never quit…
As we continue our look at spiritual growth we have been confronted with the need for courage, and now we have to look at how that courage is put into use, by taking a risk.
As Christians, we are called to grow. By definition, growth requires change. Change is never easy, and will always require courage. Thankfully, we have a source for the courage we need.
