Why is Change So hard?

February 28, 2016

John 21:2-6 His disciples were together. Peter said to them, “I am going fishing.” They said, “We will also come with you.” That night they caught nothing. When the day was now breaking, Jesus stood on the beach; yet the disciples did not know it was Jesus. So Jesus said, “Children, you do not have any fish, do you?” They answered, “No.” And He said to them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat and you will find a catch.” So they cast, and then they were not able to haul it in because of the great number of fish.


Laying Down the Law in a New Way

August 23, 2015

Romans 7:4-6 Therefore, you also were made to die to the Law through the body of Christ, so you might be joined to another, to Him who was raised from the dead in order that we might bear fruit for God. For while we were in the flesh, the sinful passions, which were aroused by the Law, were at work in the members of our body to bear fruit for death. But now we have been released from the Law, having died to that by which we were bound, so that we serve in newness of the Spirit and not in oldness of the letter.


The Process of Becoming Obedient

Romans 6:12-14 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so you obey its lusts, and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law but under grace.
