What Sentence Are You Serving?
LISTEN NOW! Greg, John, and Pat discuss mindsets, strongholds, and ideologies that have crept into our nation. They have affected the way many have thought about many areas in their lives. Often they are serving a “sentence” in their minds. Some of these sentences can be so harmful that call good bad and bad good. This is so powerful because it has been said that it only takes 10% of a people to change the direction of a nation. The ideologies they embrace make the difference. The Bible clearly teaches us in 2 Corinthians 10:4-6 that “The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. And we will be ready to punish every act of disobedience, once your obedience is complete.”
As believers we can be renewed in our mind by demolishing any ideology and/or argument that tries to come against the knowledge and truth of God’s word. You don’t have to serve a “sentence” the rest of your life. You can be set free by God’s truth and fight the good fight of faith.
Givers and Takers; Which one are you?
John, Pat and Chris share that from the time a child is born to the time they mature into adulthood parents teach their children the importance of sharing and giving. When children are toddlers they think that everything belongs to them and are very possessive however, every good parent knows that the child must grow out of that. They discuss how sometimes children as adults remain possessive of things and money and have never known the blessing it is to be a giver. In life people can fall into two camps; they are either “givers” or they are “takers”. One of the greatest ways we can emulate God and follow His example is to do what He did. God the Father gave His Son, and Jesus gave his life and in turn we give our lives to Him. When we truly give our hearts to God we are empowered to give him everything because our focus is no longer on ourselves but on God.
