Making God Disappear

…when deciding to sin we must take God out of the picture, we must assume even just for that moment that God is not “at hand”, that God is “afar off”. We make ourselves believe that somehow, while sinning we are hidden from Him, that He cannot see us.

Look Up & Step Out!

Our weakness and fears will not stop God from calling us to serve Him. Our weaknesses don’t matter, because God is sending us out in His unfailing strength. And, our fears are of no concern, because He has given us all we need to triumph over the adversities we will face. The only thing that does matter is our OBEDIENCE! How will we respond to God’s call?

Redemption (Part 3): Disobedience Disables.

If we are ever to live victorious Christian lives, we must first seriously seek to live obedient sacrificial lives. It’s not more ‘churching’, it’s not louder singing, it’s not even better preaching that’s going to transform us. We will be transformed when we “offer ourselves as living sacrifices” to God: when we sacrifice our will to live in obedience to God’s will.

The Wrong Approach to Sin

No matter how much we deny, distort or disguise the evidence of sin, we can never change the fact of sin… Only God can remove the stain and penalty of sin. The longer we hide from Him the longer we have to live with the cancer of sin eating away at our lives… Nobody forces us to sin and God does not put us in a situation where we must sin. We are NOT powerless. We CAN choose to resist the influence of others. We CAN rise above our circumstances.
