Breaking the Spirit of Fear

Breaking the Spirit of Fear 2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV) For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. “Fear,” in the Greek, has to do with being fainthearted and loosing the moral fortitude to follow the Lord. In other words, our confidence gets stripped and we compromise. Ephesians 6:11-12 (CEV) . . . defend yourself against the devil’s tricks. We are not fighting against humans. We are fighting…

Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father . . .…

I Have Decided Part 4: A Life of Love

I HAVE DECIDED TO LIVE A LIFE OF LOVE 1 John 3:10-11 (TPT) Here is how God’s children can be clearly distinguished from the children of the Evil One.

A LIFE OF PURPOSE Proverbs 29:18 (KJV) Where there is no vision, the people perish . . . .

I Have Decided Part 1: New Life Through Death

New Life Through Death Romans 5:12-21; 6:1-3 (NLT) When Adam sinned, sin entered the world. Adam’s sin brought death [separation from the life God had for us], so death spread to everyone [one man got us in a mess] . . . . Adam is a symbol, a representation of Christ, who was yet to come. But there is a great difference between Adam’s sin and God’s gracious gift. For the sin of this one man, Adam, brought death to…
