The End of Self-Help (2012)

The apostle Paul indicates that to be chosen by God, you must be sanctified by the Holy Spirit. In other words, you must be holy in reality. But how is this to happen? Is it by “progressive sanctification,” or “entire sanctification”? Many in the church today are trying to “grow into” holiness, or to “gradually...

May 2018 Offertory

Good afternoon, brothers and sisters! We're in the midst of our offertory week, and the enemy is raging. Due to technical difficulties at the radio station, we weren't able to go on live today (Wednesday, May 30). And, we weren't able to get a usable YouTube video for the first day of offertory. We pray...

No Longer Hostile to God (2005)

What does being hostile to God look like? First, and most commonly, it is living to survive. If I do everything I can to fix life's problems, I show that I don't love and trust God. Instead, I'm guilty of the same sin Adam and Even committed. It is fearing my circumstances instead of fearing...

The Day of God’s Judgment (2012)

As we live in this fallen world, we can choose one of two paths. One, we can suppress the truth of God by making unrighteous choices. Or, we can suppress–or cast off–wickedness by choosing Jesus first. All the actions of our life will flow out of one of these choices. Then, at the end of...

How They Prayed in the Upper Room

How did the 120 pray in the upper room? The book of Acts doesn't say much. But, Catherine Booth's stunning sermon, “Filled with the Spirit,” gives key insights. Notably, the disciples met several indispensable conditions in the upper room. These conditions apply equally to us today. First, the 120 went through deep self-abasement. Second, they...

Real Love in the Church

Love is one of the most common topics in Christian teaching today. Often, this love is reduced to tolerating sin, and in some cases, abuse. But what is real, Christian love in the church? Primarily, this love is an identification with Christian brothers and sisters as part of oneself. For example, if I love my...

Bring My People Out of Egypt

In the new covenant, God calls every Christian to be a “Moses.” We're to bring his people out of Egypt, meaning, out of the slavery of sin and the world. However, to bring sinners out of the world requires just as much divine power as liberating the Hebrew nation from slavery required. God's promises to...

Moses’ Baptism in the Holy Spirit

Moses, adopted by Pharoah's daughter, was next in line to be king over Egypt. However, he chose to leave Egypt behind to deliver the people of God from slavery. But, he did not wait on God for power to do so. Moses' attempt to deliver the Hebrews by killing the Egyptian parallels the attempts of...

Walking with Jesus (2012)

In the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus Christ felt an agony of prayer for the lost. So how are we to experience this burden of prayer? Simply, this burden comes from 1) reading Scripture, 2) reflecting on what we read, 3) obeying what we read. Through Scripture, the Holy Spirit will reveal the desperate state of...
