One of the main reasons that Christians struggle with sin are legalistic in our walk. We have no spiritual direction and have no power of God in our Christian lives today because we either do not understand what an important and precious Gift we have in the Holy Spirit, or we are simply not walking in the Spirit.
If you have been around a church for any length of time you have probably heard the often quoted, "let your light shine before men," verse. It's great advice, but what exactly does it mean? Where does the light come from? How exactly do you let it shine?
Today Pastor Doss explains that our "light" comes from the Spirit of God, and it can only shine from us if we are walking with Him. But how do we do that? Listen in to find out.
Have you ever had a moment where you secretly asked yourself, "Is it all really true, or have I been misled?" If you say that you haven't, you and I both know that is not true. True faith can only be achieved through facing your doubts. I have heard it said by so many people through the years, concerning faith in Christ: “You only believe in Christ because you live in America. If you lived in Japan you'd be Buddhist; Iraq, you'd be Muslim; India, you'd be Hindu.” And I've heard answers from Christians when confronted with issues about their beliefs, make statements such as: "We are to accept these things by faith alone, " Or, "We walk by faith, not by sight."
What comes to your mind when you hear the word, Abomination in Scriptures? There are a number of things which I hear Christians Scripturally quote that word as a description of today, and usually they are not wrong, but we have an eye-opening discovery, especially in today's average Christian. This incredibly powerful word that God uses to express His feelings about some of the worst and most unnatural sins mankind could commit.
Whether you are curious about Christianity, a new believer trying to figure it out, or a long time follower of Christ, this message is for you! Today Pastor Doss walks us through not only historical evidence that supports our faith in God's word, but he demonstrates how no other religion in the world is as trustworthy as ours, as steeped in fact than ours, as accurately prophetic as ours. This is a great message to share with others, and to boost your own faith.
One bitter seed can influence all your decisions, all you actions, all your thoughts, and make them displeasing to God. While another seed can bring about the exact opposite. Which are you choosing to nurture and grow?
Today, I want us to address a mindset, a dark fear and anxiety, that has probably taken hold of most people here at some point in their walk with Christ. If this has not been a problem for you, it is only a matter of time before Satan attempts to use this tactic against you. Some of you, if you were honest, have been plagued by this issue for some time—having your joy, and maybe even your faith diminished greatly because of difficult events in our lives. Or sometimes, just because we watch the world around us, as we are trying to serve Christ. Many of us, if not all, experience times when we just don't think things are adding up the way they should be.
Written over 2500 years ago, Psalm 73 is just as applicable to followers of Christ today as it was to Asaph, its author, when it was written. Today Pastor Doss switches things up a bit and we spend the morning examining a single chapter from start to finish: Psalm 73.
Many of you probably know someone who is a, "Prepper". Someone who is preparing for economic, social, or military chaos in the future. In the world in which we now live, there is much logic behind this mindset. But as a Christian, the changes that are occurring in our society at this moment, and the increasing rate in which these changes are happening, will soon cause more of us to fall, in a much more serious way, than any event that prepping could prepare you to face.
preppers (plural noun)
