• The process of change

    “But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.” (Galatians 5:22).  How do we get these character qualities?  God does not one day zap us. There is a process.

    God has a part and we have a part in the process.  In a physical workout you develop or tone the muscles God has given you.  Paul urges us to cultivate our spiritual lives.  God provides the power.

  • Decompartmentalize

    Decompartmentalize. I realize that this is not a word, but rather it is a description. To the believer it is a calling and a directive of how life should be lived. To the one who is seeking something greater and better in life, it is a statement and an invitation to a life of purpose and belonging. To fully understand the necessity and calling to decompartmentalize, we must first understand the real threat of compartmentalizing our lives.

  • Help with the stress

    We would all agree that we are living in stressful times.  The threat of terrorism added to living in this technical age results in stress on every side.  Many people endure life, while many others are living a joyous life.

    Paul’s words to the Philippians gives us some steps for managing stress and having joy in our lives (4:4-8). ”Rejoice in the Lord always” (4:4). Is this possible?  Listen to Paul’s strategy.

  • Suffering: Avoid or Embrace

  • A pattern for sucess

    When we want to learn about success, we try to find someone who has done it.  We had rather have a model of success than a manual of success.   

    Next to the Lord Jesus Christ, Paul is the best model for successful Christian living we can find.  Paul was an incredible man who lived life to the full and made his life count.  He encouraged the Philippians to “pattern their lives after his” (3:17).

  • God's Desire for you

    God is in the life changing business. He takes a life that is bent and straightens it; a shattered one and puts it together again and a dirty one and cleans it.

    There are two basic opinions as to how God changes a life. One is the passive approach where God does it all. The other opinion is the activist approach where it is all up to us. But I think it is a combination of the two where we  both have a part.

  • Every Christian’s Desire

    God’s will for every Christian is that we grow spiritually.  The writer of Hebrews challenges us, “... let us ... go on to maturity” (6:1).  God wants us to be like His Son. As Christians our standard for measuring our growth is not another Christian, but the Word of God.

    Life means problems; therefore, we spend much of our days facing and solving problems in the right attitude.  As long as we remain in this body we will face problems.
