March 7, 2019

Paul was the Apostle to the Gentiles. He confidently traveled to cities in Greece and beyond. The power of the Spirit directed his energies and birthed faith wherever he preached. That power was on display atop a famous hill in a city known for its philosophers.

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.

Mars Hill in Athens is a mound of granite near the famous Acropolis with its temples to pagan gods. It was here that the Apostle Paul preached the Gospel with power to a group of philosophers who enjoyed argument. They were watching the beginning of a spiritual tidal wave.

The enduring power of the Gospel was felt in the world of the first century. The Holy Spirit began convicting of sin, causing a fearful jailer to ask, “What must I do to be saved?” In this message we learn of prison doors flinging open and faith being birthed anew in the hearts of men and women.

The Bible calls the Gospel “the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes.” That power was felt in the early church, and in this message, we’ll begin tracing the impact the Gospel made in the first century.

The heroes of faith in Hebrews chapter eleven include ordinary people like you and me. They believed God despite not seeing immediate responses to their prayers. We too can exhibit their kind of faith. We can believe God no matter what.

Some wonder what good it is to have faith in God when He never seems to answer their prayers. Many lose what faith they have and give up on God altogether. In this message we look at the heroes of faith who believed God no matter what.

When our faith in God is genuine, it causes us to make choices in God’s favor. We willingly take the risk of being alienated from those around us when we choose God’s way over that of the world. That’s what Moses did, as we read in Hebrews chapter eleven.

Some people say they have faith, yet their lives show little evidence of it. Others who have faith are willing to take risks to live out that faith. In this message we focus on this latter kind of faith, the kind that will survive when times of testing come.

We’re all susceptible to moral sin. And with the internet, we’re more vulnerable than ever. Our entire culture is sinking into a pit of moral decay. The issue is serious, and it demands a radical solution. Jesus himself offers us words on dealing with impurity.

There’s a good reason why the Bible tells us to guard our hearts. We must consider the mind of a sexual addict to see what leads someone there, and then prescribe steps we should take to prevent being addicted to explicit images. 
February 22, 2019
The Bible bluntly says, “Touch no unclean thing.” In the midst of our technological age which is filled with sensuality, we must take bold steps and make choices that honor God. It matters where we scroll, swipe, type, or click, and we must choose each day to avoid sexual sin.
