Stone Wall Heroes - #6678
At Stonewall Jackson's battle, the troops were ready to run, but one man standing gave others the courage to do the same. If you'll be that person, you can have that same kind of effect. You have to stand under the pressure, stand under the attack, you refuse to move, you refuse to compromise.
One Wall That Keeps the Sharks Away - #6553
As each new day begins, open God's Word and you apply it to your struggles, your weaknesses, your failures. I need to rebuild my biblical wall every new day. It's also vital that key verses become a part of you; part of your personality. That means committing to memory verses that directly address your "shark."
Why Did God Create Satan?
God created all things in the beginning, including Satan. Why would God deliberately create something so evil and powerful?
Responding to Hostile Fire - #5979
It's amazing what can happen when hostility is greeted with gentleness, when harshness is greeted with tenderness, when anger is greeted with love and understanding. When someone is shooting at you, you've got an incredible opportunity not to shoot them down, but to show them Jesus.
The Biggest Mistake of All - #5977
I'll tell you, if you know that Jesus has died on the cross to pay for your sin, if you've been "into Jesus" to some extent and you remain unchanged, that is serious business.

The only response worthy of the sacrifice He made for us is to fall on our knees and give ourselves completely to the One who gave Himself completely for us.

Paul tells the Thessalonians that those who actively refuse the truth are being sent a delusion by God in order to make sure they are fully condemned.

Heavy On the Healthy Stuff - #5703
Just like cholesterol, you can't just be against the bad input. You need to be making a conscious, daily effort to load up on God's ideas and attitudes. Jesus said if you clean out one evil spirit and you just leave an empty space there, seven spirits worse will come back and fill that space. So, you have to fill the space in your thinking and your emotions that the dark stuff has been occupying.
Wrath of God in the Bible - a Christian perspective
Paul writes that the wrath of heaven is being revealed to all who are wicked and work to suppress the truth. He writes that God has been self-evident throughout history and that those who are inciting the wrath of God should know better.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Smacked With Your Back Pack - #5613
Now, what is going to attract people to your Jesus? Your hope it says. They're going to want to ask about your hope! They'll be curious about what makes you such a positive person, a joyful person. But they're not going to see hope if you keep hitting them with the negative stuff you're carrying. Maybe you're carrying a backpack full of stress and pressure and you're stressing out everybody; you're dumping your stress on them!
