Romans 7 is often used as a proof text for a doctrine that says that we are all just sinners saved by grace. If the Apostle Paul struggled as he did over sin, so the theory goes, then it justifies our own struggles. But we can't throw out everything that Paul said in chapter 6, which is what we would have to do to come to that conclusion. Find out this week what Paul was really talking about and discover the freedom that Christ died to see you walk in.

Did you know that you died with Christ?  Is that just something we say or did something really happen?  What exactly died?  Listen this week as we plunge into Romans 6 to discover what really happened to us the day we said yes to Jesus.  Spoiler alert:  God rewrote your code!

Jesus accomplished way more in His death, burial, and resurrection than just to get you to Heaven some day, and our justification resulted in more than just being pardoned of our crimes.  We were actually restored to the image of God and made to be partakers of His divine nature.  Listen this week as we jump into 2Pet.  and explore these truths.

If I am truly guilty of sin, and the bible is clear that I am, and the judge acquits me, he doesn't actually take away my guilt.  He simply removes my punishment.  And this is where much of the church has arrived.  I am a sinner saved by grace, they say.  This week we press into Romans 5 to excavate some of the benefits, not our acquittal, but of our full justification.  You aren't going to want to miss this!

The world is a mess and that mess has gotten on the church!  Our attitude and the way we are currently approaching life is making us miserable.  It's negatively affecting relationships and ultimately our outlook on life as a whole.  Listen as Ps. Shawn challenges a judgmental mindset, which is bringing much division in the church and in our nation.

We are called to "see" other believers as Christ sees them, even when they aren't refined yet. Our job is to call them into their identity and out of previous ungodly patterns by coming alongside them in relationship.

When we were saved, our enslavement to sin was broken and we were set free, suddenly able to abstain from sin and empowered to walk in freedom.  Our job now is to learn how to walk in this newfound freedom.  The good news is that God has surrounded  us "family"  to help us on our journey and spur us onto good works.

We continue this week in Luke 16, a tremendous passage speaking to how we should handle.  This week's emphasis is on the reality that God considers money the least of ALL things!  God sets money as a starting point for more in the kingdom.  If we never have our financial house in order, we will never get our eternal house there either!

Money is such a good measure of where we are at in our maturity in the Lord, especially as it relates to the orphan spirit. If you want to know where you are at, just look at your finances! God calls us to step into the generous lifestyle as modeled by our generous Father, and to literally store up for ourselves treasure in heaven by impacting the lives of people around us.

Apostle Paul admonishes us to run in such a way that we may win. Here we find a key; the bible says that I can win! You will never run and buffet your bodies, as Paul suggests, unless you first believe that you can win. Listen this week as we continue to identify and break off aspects of the orphan spirit.

Did you know that the bible presupposes that we will be successful in making it to the other side of difficulty? We have all seen people who have been shipwrecked in their faith, so how then does it presuppose that we will be successful? Because the word of God gives us the recipe for success.

Through adoption we have been given new rights and new responsibilities.  Our past has been washed away and we are fully united to our Father.  All of our past has been washed away and we are fully united to our Father.  Holy Spirit is IN us upon adoption and we need to stay in step with Him and not revert to our old Orphan lifestyles or ways of thinking.

Jesus came to give us life in abundance, but the problem is that we were all born orphans, estranged from our heavenly Father.  There is nothing like the orphan mindset's ability to bring a blockage to you experiencing everything Jesus has for you.  It creates a false, self perpetuating reality that seems to validates its own existence.  Find out more this week.

Judas had been with Jesus for 3 years and witnessed many incredible things.  He looked like any of the other 12 and even participated in the miracles, seeing people healed, delivered, and set free.  He even quit his job and rearranged his life to follow Jesus and yet betrayed Him.  There was no question that he made sacrifices.  But God isn't looking for sacrifice, He's looking for your heart....your whole heart.

The crowd started following Jesus because they saw the signs of healing He was doing.  Later that same crowd sees the multiplication of bread and fish, but when they catch back up to Jesus He rebukes them, saying that they weren't following Him because they saw the signs, but because they got their bellies fed.  What happened between the first sign and the last sign that caused such a dramatic shift?  Find out this week!

Jesus said that if we don't take up our cross and follow after Him, we aren't worthy of the Him.  Have you ever considered what that means?  If you want to truly live, you have to first lay down your life!
