The “faithfulness” aspect of the “fruit of the spirit” is grown by believing God’s promises, and this fruit from God enables us to overcome many difficulties of life while remaining hopeful of a great eternity! Nolan points us to many of these reminders here!
We are warriors for a “heavenly kingdom” that’s at war with actual enemies in a fallen, worldly kingdom. We’re not playing defense, we’re on the offense, “tearing down strongholds” and “taking captive our thoughts”. (2 Cor 10:3-5) We lay down our lives for our enemies’ salvation, but we also must protect the flock from wolves who seek to devour us as well. Being a well qualified “warrior” for this kingdom takes great wisdom, training, and Godly character. We’ll discuss it all here in this category – everything from how we battle selfish desires, like porn, that would destroy us, to false profits preaching bad doctrines. For a complete description of our categories, check out the Categories page.

We’ll send a carrier pigeon with a summary of the week—free as grace!
God has plainly told us that “bad company corrupts good character” and yet we can be really passive about the company we keep the most of and the friendships we form. Let’s look at ways we can evaluate our friends, counselors, and company with Biblical wisdom.
One of the easiest ways we get caught up in flirting with the world is through our use of social media and other forms of media. We may need to consider some serious questions about how and why we do this. This isn’t a “take a break” thing, but a daily consideration.
The “Gospel” of Prosperity says you were created for greatness, but the Gospel of Grace says you were created to behold greatness. Teaching anything else is a destructive and misleading teaching.
We continue the series of “When We Love Christ But Flirt With The World”, and we practically examine our morning routine and discuss how this routine can affect our entire day’s mindset and focus. Jump in and share your thoughts!
We begin a series of posts that help us practically examine our lives and the realities that cause us to veer into “worldliness” even though our mouths, and hopefully hearts, would claim to love Christ. This begins with what we’re doing, or not doing, in regards to feeding our minds and souls daily.
God’s reach of grace is not hindered by your past, nor is it shortened on account of your sin…even for terrorists. It’s understandable to hate, fear, and pray against what ISIS is doing. But, what if we as believers were praying FOR the people of ISIS? What could that do?
Some messages are #SuperSermons because of their timeless value, then some because of their absolutely “dialed-in” timely message. This is one of the latter. If you’ve seen clips of this message recently, watch the whole message for both an education on preaching, and a challenge on convictions.
One of the greatest needs, and struggles, for men is purity, and not just sexually, but more so our ability to keep our heart and mind pure. This affects how we act, what we say, and everything else about us. So let’s talk about how we keep pure, together…
Let’s look at the fruit of kindness and it’s importance in our daily lives. Why do we need it and what might it look like? This one “fruit of the spirit” can do a lot to set us apart as men of God in a rough world.
Men are taught and modeled many wrong things about being manly. From a woman’s perspective, here’s what having a manly heart should be all about – complete with an epic story of a truly manly man.
An amazing and super challenging message from a tell-it-like-it-is man of God, Paul Washer. This is emotional and convicting, and will leave you saying, “Why do I not think and live in such a way!?” just like a #SuperSermon should!
We all hear, “Patience is a virtue!” but what is patience? It’s easy to say we have it, but do we? Is it actually Godly? How does patience look? Does it help anything?
Peace is something many of us seek in this world. How does God promise us peace? Where can we find it? Where does peace come from? As a fruit of the Spirit, we are given peace unlike what the world can experience.
In a world full of court rulings, ISIS beheading videos, and our own indwelling sin, the Church needs to hear the message of Hebrews afresh. The author of Hebrews gives us many arguments for why we should feel encouraged to persevere!
Luke 6:43 – “No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit” Galatians 5:22-23 is one of the most memorized scriptures in the bible. This scripture speaks of the fruit that comes out of being part of Jesus and having the Spirit within. It lists many different flavors of the “fruit” that should be produced
As a former DJ and a musician, Andy gives us an honest, insightful, and deeply challenging look at the music we listen to and how it both reflects what is in our heart as well as enforces what goes into it. You cannot read this without being challenged!
The greatest commandments. The first fruit of the Spirit. Love. But are we loving as God actually commanded us to? What does it mean to truly have “love” as a fruit of the spirit? How does this play out in our lives? Nolan examines some key Bible verses that help us begin to understand what this really looks like.
What is the role of a pastor during the week? First and foremost, the life of the minister is the life of an Intercessor. Ministry starts on our knees.
Since we’re talking, – just you and me – and I want to be really honest with you, I need to tell you that we gotta talk about some stuff.
Stuff like nudity, sex, hook-ups, pornography and all that stuff. Yea, the stuff your “christian friends” call “lust”.
