go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you. And He, when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment;                          —John 16:7-8                                                          1. I never knew He was______________________________________   I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever; that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.               — John 14:16-17                                                 “para”=...

           There is a “treasure principle” that seems to be inherent in the Kingdom of God that is designed to direct our mindset in the issue of money    “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.  But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.  For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:19-21   One of the reasons Jesus gives us this perspective on money is...

“The most important part of a man is his knowledge of God.”  How we view God shapes the type of person we are going to become.  If we see God as harsh or legalistic we have a tendency to become that way ourselves.  If we see Him as kind and compassionate, we tend toward those qualities as well.  When we see God as a giver not a taker, generosity becomes a hallmark in our lives. God is a bountiful giver.  Throughout the scriptures we see Him providing for individuals and nations out of the abundance of His riches.  And no one...

What makes us generous people?  How do we become one of those Christians that lives to give to help others?  Paul gives us one clue when he referred to the church of Macedonia, Greece in the first century.  He said, “in a severe test of affliction their abundance of joy and their extreme poverty have overflowed in a wealth of liberality on their part”  (2 Cor. 8:2).  The way God’s grace had produced the generosity of the church was not in making them rich in money, but by making them rich in joy.  The motive for giving in any ministry is...

In our culture there seems to be a pressure to conform.  People want to “fit in” by attempting to be like everyone else.  Society gravitates toward average because those who are different are often ostracized or rejected.  And yet, those who we honor as heroes usually depart from the norm.  They radically live in order to make a difference in their world.  We admire Gandi, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandella, Mother Teresa and others precisely because they chose not to conform to cultural expectations. Our greatest example of radical living was, of course, Jesus Christ.  He grew up in obscurity, chose...

“God did not come to make bad men good, He came to make dead men live!”  The problem with the human race is not that we simply have evil in this world; it is that we are surrounded by spiritual death.  In fact, ever since Adam and Eve sinned in the garden, the Bible says that death has reigned in the hearts of men (Romans 5:12-14).  This is the source of all the darkness, depression, abuse, addiction, and hostilities that have spread across the planet.  We have all been touched by this and have all suffered pain due to this onslaught...

One of the greatest enemies that we face in our day is this enemy of lust.  It is nothing new—people have been wrestling with this since the beginning of time.  But now we live in an age where it is possible to be so saturated with lust that it can become an obsession and a destructive force that can tear apart families, bring abuse to children, destroy trust in authority figures, and bring financial ruin to millions of people.  Welfare roles are filled with people who have lost the battle against lust.  Unwanted pregnancies, STD’s, broken hearts and fragmented families are...

     One of the most destructive emotions that creeps into the human heart is that of jealousy.  One reason that it is so dangerous is because it is usually unnoticed by the victim.  Most of us are unaware when we are jealous of someone.  It’s hard to admit because it seems so juvenile.  But relationships are severely hampered by such an emotion.  When we are quick to criticize, reluctant to facilitate someone else’s success, threatened by talented or popular people, or even measure our own success by other people’s failure,  it’s usually an indication that envy has crept in.      Think about...

Today we will look at the enemy of greed that so treacherously captures the human heart.                 “Greedy people believe they deserve every good thing that comes their way.  Not only that, but they believe they deserve every good thing that could possibly come their way.  Their mantra is, “What’s mine is mine because I’ve earned it—and I’ve got a lot more coming.”  Consequently, it’s hard to get a greedy person to part with money or stuff.  Why?  Because it’s theirs.  And they’re scared. And they have a story to tell.  For example, being raised in a home with little...

One of the most powerful emotions in our lives is the dynamic of anger.  Anger can be a positive or a negative motivation that fuels our behavior in various ways.  Righteously, anger can stir us to action against  the injustices of the world.  Ungodly anger can cause us to be bitter with those we love or even with God himself.    The root attitude of anger is one of “You OWE Me.”  It stems from the idea that you have taken something valuable from me;  my reputation, my job, my relationship, my money, my affections or whatever else people do to...
