Sermon 76 – Back to Basics

A young lady in our fellowship was clearly promoting herself and people were beginning to distance themselves from her. I spoke with her and asked her if she could see that she was being proud.

The twelve disciples served Jesus in love with themselves. They proved this when they told the children to go away; they proved it when they asked for thrones next to Jesus, they proved it when they wanted to call fire down from heaven; and they proved it when they deserted Jesus at the inquisition.

All Christians do the same until they Read the rest of this entry »

Sermon 38 – The SPIRIT of the WORLD – 1 Cor.2:12

As a child, if you blame the authority, with bitterness in your heart, for being unfairly treated and for your hurt feelings, you’ll initiate a spirit of resistance against authority. If you allow this hurt to fester, you’ll generate a permanent pattern of defiance with an inner heart of …
