WHY DO I NOT SPIRITUALLY GROW?

    In the medical field they say that the first 24 hours following surgery are the most critical. It is within those first 24 hours that the individual is at their highest risk for complications to set in. Within this time period such issues as infection, inflammation, rejection are the most likely to set in. The same concern applies in the spiritual realm. Although not necessarily within the 24 hour period…but certainly within a short time following a spiritual experience…a spiritual surgery of kind. I am not speaking of literally becoming ill…but rather of loosing the effectual gain of…

EASTER...WHY THE CROSS?

Posted:  Sunday, 05 April 2015 11:44 Written by
    So why did Jesus really go to the cross? Seems most teachings focus on that He had to do so to pay for our sins so we could have the assurance of salvation. Many have a distorted view that submission to the cross gives Jesus the right to control us. Another less taught concept is so we can walk in His authority and power. But there is a much bigger picture behind the scene. The goal of His sacrifice lies in the reason for which He created us in the first place. God being love was longing to…

GRACE-NOT FOR DISOBEDIENCE BUT FOR IMPERFECT EFFORT

    Have you ever wondered why...when you get all filled up at a conference or after hearing a great sermon and are ready to take on the world…yet in a matter of a few days or even a few hours we have returned to our previous disposition? Where did all that passion go? One moment we were ready to pray deliverance on a street corner, the next we find ourselves on the couch watching TV. Was that which we experienced just hype or what? Could be...but more likely Holy Spirit really did do a work in us. Where did…

MY WILL BE DONE

  God would have us all embrace that our spiritual life is a life that is managed daily by our own free will. When we worship Him in spirit and truth, God does not take away the freedom of our will…rather we at that moment are in our free will state. It is each person’s free will that brings them into intimacy and that which keeps them there. The same applies to our influences from the world or the demonic realm. No one can make us do anything…we always have free will no matter how difficult the situation may appear.…

ABIDING IN AGREEMENT WALKING IN THE SPIRIT

  Abiding in agreement with God is essential  to walking in the spirit. Simply…you cannot abide if you are not in agreement with Him…and you cannot walk in the spirit if you are not abiding. Abiding is about spending quality time together. Some people may say…“Well, God is always with me. We are always together.” How many times have I heard wives say to me, “Oh sure, we go everywhere together, but it is as though he is not there.” And yes I am guilty as well… How much of our time is actually spent in meaningful conversation with our …
