The Approval of Man or God?
Paul wrote this to the Galatians, "It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery." We often fall back into slavery when we seek the approval of others. We are never...
Made Perfect in Weakness
When we're under the God's control we will not be under the power of sin. That is true freedom indeed. * I've heard others call in about overcoming and I found strength in 2 Corinthians 12:9,10 "But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for...

Words of Freedom
Tomorrow we celebrate the independence of America and people all over the United States will be celebrating this event. But the freedom we have in Christ is much more significant. When Jesus speaks the words of forgiveness to you and me those are true...
Freedom in Forgiveness
Because Jesus is alive, He can speak words of truth and freedom into our lives that change us. Jesus said the paralytic, "Son, yours sins are forgiven." And those are freeing words. He says that to us today when we come to Him. * Christ came to take a...
The Freedom to Know God
The true presentation of the Gospel introduces us to true freedom. And we find that we have to take off the mask, the hard shells, and just be ourselves in God's presence. It's a scary thing. But that's where the cross and the resurrection are so...
There is Freedom
Paul wrote this, "Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom." If we want to experience freedom in our souls we have to experience it through the Holy Spirit. Tomorrow we start a new topic for the month of...
Led by the Spirit
Paul had this to say, "For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God" in Romans 8:14 It is the most normal and natural thing for those in Christ to be led by the Spirit. We've been given the mind of Christ and the counsel of God...
Flesh or Spirit?
We've been talking all this life about the role of the Holy Spirit in our life. What is Paul talking about in Romans 8:5-8 "Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the...
Renewing Our Minds
Bob and Andrew talk about the STAND2014 conference that was this past weekend. One of the things we talked about is how the Holy Spirit teaches us to say "no" to sin. In Titus 2:11 we read, "the grace of God has appeared to all men..." * What is...
Grieving the Spirit
What does it mean to grieve the Holy Spirit? * How do I answer those who don't believe once we have salvation we can never lose it? * How do I answer those who don't believe once we have salvation we can never lose it? * What can we do to stop...
Our True Spiritual Gift

My Presence Will Go With You
As I think about the Holy Spirit and His role in our lives I always think about Exodus 33. Moses led the people out of Egypt and toward the promised land. In the desert Moses is talking to the God about the people being "stiff necked". Moses makes and...
The Work of the Spirit
We're talking about the work of God's Spirit in our live and that work is grace. For by grace you have been saved through faith. But there's more to the story than just the transition from death to life. Philippians 2:12,13 "Therefore, my dear...
The Fruit of The Spirit
Last week we talked about the Spirit led life. But what does that actually look like? How do we know we're being led by the spirit. Galatians 5:22,23 "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness...
