The Key to Living in Victory - Part 1

Have you made New Year's resolutions that you haven't kept? Have you ever repented of something, and prayed in earnest, "God, I'll never do that again!", only to find yourself committing that sin again? You are not alone, and this is something every Christ-follower experiences.

Even the Apostle Paul experienced this. Read what Paul writes in his letter to the Romans:

Study the End Times and be Blessed!

On Sunday my pastor taught on the end times- a rare sermon at my church. I have observed that when it comes to studying the End Times (a.k.a. "Eschatology", or the study of last things), that Christians are usually at one or two extremes.

Victory over Sin by Saying Yes

The Apostle Paul writes something interesting about his own spiritual journey in Romans 7: "For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do. If then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good. But now it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. For I know that in me, that is, in my flesh, nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find.

The Key to Living in Victory - Part 2

After we have recognized what Paul wrote about in Romans 7 - that we are wretched and incapable of living holy lives in our own power - we are ready to find the key to living a victorious Christian life.

Paul continues in Romans 8:

The Journey of a Christ-Follower

What is a "Christian"? People around the world think different things when they hear the term. Throughout history some horrible things have been done by so-called "Christians", and today movies and T.V. shows often paint their own portrait of what they think a Christian is.

The word Christian simply means "Christ-follower". Sadly, many today who call themselves Christians are not really following Jesus Christ at all.

To better understand what it really means to be a Christian - a true Christ-follower - we must turn to the words of Jesus Himself:

Christian Communicators Impacting the World

Things Aren't Right

I love this video by Hillsong United. As Christ-followers, our hearts should break with what breaks the heart of God.

Eating the Dirt

Last night I was at a dinner for Christian leaders, and one of the most prominent pastors in the world was at my table. It was a delicious 3-course meal, and my steak was cooked perfectly.

Affairs on Facebook - A Warning to Christians

From a few real-life stories I have heard lately, Facebook is apparently a good place to start an affair.  A big part of Facebook is reconnecting with people from your past, but often for Christians, some of the people in your past are not people you should be reconnecting with.  Sometimes what seems like innocent flirting with an “old flame” can lead to the destruction of a marriage and the breaking apart of a family.  I have recently heard about 3 such cases of Christian marriages being critically damaged as a result of affairs started on Facebook.

All Christians are Slaves - But to What?
