The Pursuit of Holiness

 

Christians that are growing daily in their relationship with God will begin to overcome sin, temptation and attacks from the enemy more and more consistently. Holiness is something that we can use as a measure in how well we are doing in overcoming the world.

The Prodigal Father

 

One of the most well-known of Jesus parables is the ‘Parable of the Prodigal Son’. And yet the word prodigal is defined as “having or giving something on a lavish scale, in a recklessly extravagant way. In light of that this parable should actually be known as the ‘Parable of the Prodigal Father’, because the most startling act of extravagant and unrestrained love is exhibited in the way in which the Father responds to his two sons when he realizes that both of them were estranged from his Father-heart.

The Groan Zone

 

Have you ever been in the “groan zone” – it’s where you sigh more than you speak; when your inner agony is so deep that you’re literally at a loss for words, you can’t even express what you’re actually feeling; when you cry and ask “Why?”; when you’re so confused that you just don’t know which way to turn; when you’re tempted to give up praying all together.

Growing in Consistency

“If only my ways were committed to keeping your statutes…” We can relate to the writer of Psalm 119 in that there are certain commands that God has given that you find are easy enough to do, maybe you’re good at those things or strong in those areas. But when you think about ALL God’s commands you realise that there areas that are not great at all.
If only we were more consistent in all areas of our spiritual lives, if only we were more consistent in following all of God’s Word.

Entitlement

 

 

When we live in a way that we believe we deserve certain privileges or standards of living we actually knock God out of the center of our lives and rather place ourselves there. Entitlement means being self-centered and when we don’t get what we believe we deserve this can lead us to questioning the goodness of God.

“In Essentials, Unity; In Non-Essentials, Liberty; In All Things, Charity.”

The Church is filled with people who come from various levels of faith. Some have been Christians for many years. Some are in a state of exploring. Some have just recently accepted Christ and still have a lot to learn. For the most part, and with regard to the essential issues there is agreement, it’s in the disputable matters that we find the tempest in the teapot.

Sadly many Christians can be very critical, negative, and condemning. That is, if you don’t believe exactly as they believe then you won’t make it to heaven. And that’s not what Christianity is all about!

Take Up Your Cross

To take up your cross, to carry your cross, is to be willing to die in order to follow Jesus. While there were those who gave their literal lives for Jesus, as many of the disciples were said to have done. Carrying your cross meant more than that, it meant dying to self, surrendering all aspects of your life to Jesus.
Many of us understand that we need die to self in terms of sinful behaviour but there is another way in which we need to die to self…

Rejection

Rejection has a way of destroying a person’s life in a way that few other things can. In fact the number of people who are affected by rejection is staggering. One highly experienced deliverance minister notes that spirits of rejection are among some of the most common demons that he has encountered throughout his ministry. It seems that almost everybody is affected by rejection to some degree. It’s vital for us who are in a living relationship with Jesus, to understand, as well as work through this if we want to be all that God has created us to be. Overcoming rejection and the effects of a mistaken identity is absolutely essential.
