Some Things Just Aren't Negotiable - #6407
It's time that we returned with humility to an open Bible and say, "God, how do You feel about it? And whatever You say, that's it! I'll do it."

The Battle For Your Life - #6060
The Life-Giver, Jesus Christ, is fighting for your soul this very moment. He paid the price for your sin on the cross. And now you're in the middle of a tug-of-war on which your eternity depends; Satan trying to keep you on his path to kill you, and Jesus inviting you to give yourself to Him so He can give you life.

Why a Life Collapses - #5998
Christian meetings, Christian people, they're all good, but they're not enough to build a life on. Christ has got to be your identity, your strength, your passion.
