February 23, 2023

Many attempt to channel false power through astrology, horoscopes, séances, Ouija boards, tarot cards, and occultic practices. But the simple prayer of faith unlocks the true power of God. In this message, we consider how all three members of the Trinity are involved in effective prayer. Only God can demolish strongholds.

Living With Your Passions
In a hyper-sexualized culture, sex is either reduced to pleasure-seeking or conflated with our identity. But God designed us as sexual beings for emotional and spiritual intimacy whose highest calling is to worship Him. In this revised edition, Pastor Erwin Lutzer draws on forty years of ministry experience to present a rationale for sexual purity. He gives an honest answer to the sexual pressures we face like extramarital relationships, self-gratification, same-sex attraction, and more. As desire-driven creatures, we don't have to pursue happiness at the expense of character. With our identity grounded in Christ, we can live victoriously with our passions.

If we’ve never dealt with the abuse in our background, it constantly interrupts all attempts at normal living. The trauma of abuse results in anger, guilt, bitterness, hatred, and shame.

People enslaved to their addictions feel hopeless. Apart from an encounter with God, we cannot ultimately break free from our destructive behavior.

Can we be set free from captivity in our minds?

The battle for our mind is an ongoing war. Our mind is like a fortress, under siege by two enemies: Satan and our sinful nature.
