Why is Life in This World So Hard? – Part 1
Why is this world so hard to live in? The Bible says it is because we all want to be our own boss—we say, “I know what will make me happy more than God does. I want to do live life on my own.” But here’s the Good News: God has not left us here without hope. He sent us a Savior, his Son, Jesus Christ. When you choose God, he will help you make it through the difficulties of life.
Making the Hard Changes in Me – Part 4
Satan wants to establish a foothold in your life, and once he gets deep enough into an area of sin, he turns the foothold into a stronghold. Once that happens, it will be harder for you to take back control of your life. In this broadcast, Pastor Rick talks about strongholds and what we can do to protect ourselves against them.
Making the Hard Changes in Me – Part 3
Spiritual transformation is a process of developing new habits over time. Habits become the building blocks of change and collectively shape our character. There is no such thing as instant maturity. It is a small, step-by-step, gradual, incremental process as the Holy Spirit guides us into deeper maturity.
Making the Hard Changes in Me – Part 2
Imagine what it would be like if you tried to live a perfect life, but the way you keep things perfect is by avoiding any chance of making mistakes. You’d always be paralyzed by indecision. The Bible says the answer to this is Jesus Christ. You don’t have to be perfect because Jesus is, and that’s Good News.
Making the Hard Changes in Me – Part 1
The Bible says rebellion against God broke everything in life. Before sin there was no death, no sadness, no sorrow, and no difficulty in the world. It was only when everything got broken that sin brought death into the world. But God has not left us here without hope. He has sent us a Savior, in his Son, Jesus Christ.
Set Free from Me – Part 4
Whenever we’re afraid, we need to turn our thoughts to God. This is how God’s Spirit sets us free from fear. The Bible says, “For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, ‘Abba, Father.’ For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children” (Romans 8:14-16 NLT).
Set Free from Me – Part 3
We can become so focused on what NOT to think about that we end up thinking about it even more! The Bible teaches that the thoughts we resist, tend to persist. In this broadcast, Pastor Rick teaches how Jesus helps us to shift our thoughts from negative to positive.
Set Free from Me – Part 2
You have the ability to say no to sin. Do you hear that? The Bible says we do not have to sin. Pastor Rick explains how we can make the right choices as we respond to the Holy Spirit at work within us.
Set Free from Me – Part 1
The only way to make real change in your life is to let God change you from the inside out. You simply can’t make lasting changes on your own. Pastor Rick explains that the Holy Spirit is there for us, to help us overcome the self-destructive things we do that keep us from really changing.
Winning the Battle Inside Me – Part 4
Pastor Rick continues to teach from Romans 7, where the apostle Paul explains why we face temptation, how much temptation costs, and how to win the battle by doing what God tells us to do.
Winning the Battle Inside Me – Part 3
You may feel totally defeated today. And you’re thinking, “I just want to give up!” Pastor Rick teaches if you’re ready to give up, that’s GOOD! You can stop trying to do everything on your own because it’s impossible. You can’t live life without Jesus. But Jesus can empower you with new life.
