The Power of Sin

Two Stories. “I think I am going to leave my wife and get a divorce.”  I was surprised to hear this because this couple had been a part of church for years.  I asked him why?  He went on to say, “We tried it and it didn’t work.”  I was still confused so I asked about ‘it’?  What do you mean that you tried ‘it’?  He said, “We have been attending church and our marriage hasn’t gotten any . . .

The Dangers of Pride and The Rewards of Humility

Today we continue this series looking at one of the biggest, and sneakiest forms of spiritual kryptonite out there.  I know right? Another big one!  We will also look at the counter to it, which is also pretty interesting because it is often misunderstood.  This is a big one because today we are talking about pride and humility and I want you to know right on the front end.  Pride is difficult to deal with, because…if you deal . . .

How to Break Depression, Sin and Control

When you give your life to God, you have spiritual strength, God places it inside you. For the Kingdom of God is not just fancy talk; it is living by God’s power. NLT 1 Corinthians 4:20 God has given you His grace to wash away all sin, guilt and shame [Galatians 3:3]. When you walk with sin and shame and guilt, it’s exhausting and defeating. But, when you bring it to God, God washes it all away to . . . Read More »

The Dangers of Entitlement

So here in 2019 we started a pretty big series entitled “What is your kryptonite?” and here’s the idea.  There is a way that we should be living our lives as Christians.  As we read scripture it is pretty clear that our lives should be described a certain way.  Through the course of this series I have really been using three very specific words on what the life of a disciple of Christ should look like.  Those three . . .

I’m Just A Little Set In My Ways…

Modern Day Idol

We are in a series called: What is your Kryptonite? Like Kryptonite to Superman, sin steals our strength. It steals our spiritual strength and it blinds us from seeing who we really are. Let’s quickly talk about our spiritual strength, what God has given us. We just can’t talk about this enough. God has given us His grace to wash away all sin, guilt and shame [Galatians 3:3]. When we walk through life with sin and shame and . . . Read More »

When Is Enough Actually Enough?

I have got to tell you something, I am really excited about getting into this message today.  We are going to be talking about temptation and sin, and how to overcome this stuff…and I have to say, this message excites me because it gives us great handles, and practical tools to deal with things.  Things that we all deal with…now we may not like to tell people in church we deal with things like this but and Paul . . .
