Christian Living

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:

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:

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.

All Christians are Slaves - But to What?

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are over 6.7 billion people in the world. According to Romans 6, all of them are in slavery.

Good to Great

There is a good business leadership book called “Good to Great”- it has been on the bestsellers list for past 2 years or so.  The study of truly great companies showed that they focused on working with their team to “get the right people on the bus, let the wrong people off the bus, and helping everyone find their right seat on the bus” before taking the bus on a journey.  This is something I am working through right now with the leadership, and it will not happen overnight, but it is essential for us to take this community from “Good to Great”!

‘Fireproof’ Demonstrates Strong Demand for Christian Media

The new movie Fireproof, from the makers of Facing the Giants and starring Kirk Cameron, is demonstrating once again the strong demand for media with a Christian perspective.

Use Podcasts to Grow in your Christian Walk

As a young Christian as a teenager, I grew tremendously in my walk with Christ and knowledge of the Bible through listening to audio tapes. Today, many Christians are discovering the world of podcasts and how they can get “God on their iPod” to grow and be encouraged throughout the week.

Fighting for Aslan: The Christian’s Journey

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

2 Corinthians 10:3-6
