Why don’t we experience more victory in the Christian life? We have neglected the spiritual disciplines and opted for comfort and mediocrity. So now what do we do to find victory?
Because Christ has set us free we’re no longer slaves to the power of sin. It’s a difficult concept but that’s what grace is all about.
Life is made possible by His empowering us to live above the drag of the flesh. Such a concept could cause some to think that the Christian life is a “cloud nine” delight, full of nothing but “glorying,” uninterrupted peace, pleasure, and prosperity. To keep things realistic, Paul introduced the other side of life—the “groaning.” They are indissolubly linked—welded together and inseparable.
It’s hard to imagine what heaven will be like. But the Bible does say it’s a real place and there’s nothing you can do to earn your place there. You just need to accept God’s free gift of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.
Despite the hymns we sing, many people think they can earn their way into heaven if their good deeds outweigh their bad deeds. Replace your good deeds with the Good News—your salvation was accomplished on the cross. It’s simply a gift. All you have to do is accept it.
Living happily ever after isn’t usually God’s plan for us, but what He does have in store for us is a great adventure. Walking with God is the most exciting and rewarding of all experiences on earth.
Not having things go the way we want when we want is one of the toughest things in life we have to deal with. Prayers aren't answered right away, loved ones pass away, and bad things happen to good people.
People are sometimes uncomfortable with the notion that God is sovereign and in complete control. We prefer to think we're in charge of our own destiny. But in this message, Chuck Swindoll assures us that the sovereignty of God is our greatest comfort.
Honouring one another is essential for healthy relationships. Take time to show your loved ones how much you value and cherish them. You’ll never regret the time you spend nurturing these relationships.
Even though relationships aren’t easy, life would be pretty dull and lonely without them. In spite of our high-tech world, people remain an essential ingredient in life.
