Conflict serving redemption

9/5/2018
More
Throughout scripture, beginning with the Fall, there is a conflict between good and evil. Today, Christians are in a battle against "the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms" (Ephesians 6:12). Far from hindering the gospel, there are times when God uses conflict to further his redemptive purposes.9 November 2009

Salt and light

8/22/2018
More
The Lord Jesus emphatically declares that Christians are different – they are the salt and light of the world. Yet he also warns that if salt loses its saltiness, it is "no longer good for anything". We must not lose our distinctive, influencing, Christian nature. If we live in conspicuous obedience to Christ we will stand out and fulfil our calling, "that [men] may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven" (Matthew 5:16b). 2 November 2009

Perseverance

Suffering

Suffering is surely something that no Christian can escape, yet there is much confusion on this subject.

Duration:01:27:08

Personal discipline

4/25/2018

Duration:01:27:03

Prayer

4/18/2018
More
