June 9, 2022

Immoral relationships create deep bonds, even between people having “casual” sex. The more bonds we make, the tougher they are to break. In this message, we step into freedom with Christ through cleansing, fleeing, and communicating. There is a way out of the bondage of promiscuity.

Sex is more than a one-night stand. It creates a bond that unites us to another in purpose, desire, and relationship. What effect does a sexual relationship outside of marriage have on us? In this message, we examine the spiraling consequences of a soul bond. No matter how strong those bonds are or how far we’ve fallen, God is the God of new beginnings.

“If it feels good, it must be right. After all, I am entitled to my happiness.” With lies like these, we rationalize our disobedience to God’s commands, even about sex. In this message, we take an honest look at five lies about our desires. Our souls can be restored, but the lies must be stripped away. Are we ready to hear God’s truth about our deepest longings?

Driven by our desires, we are experts at self-deception. We will do whatever it takes to satisfy our urges, and then justify it by believing blatant lies. In this message, we expose five lies about our desires from Genesis 3. Facing the truth about ourselves is costly but there is a way for the soul to be restored.

All of us have had shameful thoughts and done shameful deeds. Since the original sin of Adam and Eve, people have been using others to gratify their desires, without any true commitment. In this message, we uncover God’s answer to the devastation of shame. Where is God amid our most shameful secrets?

Our culture is a sea of sensuality. Some have attempted to redefine marriage while others’ marriages are infected with infidelity and pornography. In this message on Creation and the Fall, we address God’s design for sexuality as well as the effect of shame. When we abandon God’s morality, our lives—even our souls—are left in turmoil.

Will our faith survive our circumstances? The heroes of Hebrews 11 include ordinary people like us who believed God despite no immediate response to their prayers for deliverance.

Where is God when we really need Him? Many lose what faith they have and give up on God altogether. Believers across the ages have experienced loss and devastating trials. In this message from Hebrews 11, we unpack four facts about faith in God in any circumstance. No matter what, we can trust Almighty God.

Most of us would choose comfort over risk. When our faith in God is genuine, we are ready for unfamiliar territory. In Hebrews 11, Moses risks everything—being alienated from the world—for an eternal reward. In this message, we learn how to decide between the world’s temporary pleasures and lasting joy.

Some people say they have faith, yet their lives show little evidence of it. Others who possess true faith are willing to take risks. In this message on Moses’ life from Hebrews 11, we identify his radical decision and powerful motivation, followed by a miraculous victory.

When God is not our priority, our self-absorption destroys both us and our relationship with Him. To ensure we understand the cost of Calvary, God gave us Moriah. On that mountain, Abraham, a picture of God the Father, laid Isaac down, the picture of Christ the Son. In this message, we find three lessons about Abraham’s worshipful sacrifice. Are we putting the Lord first?
