Paul tells us to “be angry, but do not sin” (Ephesians 4:26a). If you’ve not been angry recently, then you are disobeying the command to be angry. It reveals that you don’t care deeply about things that should enrage you. But the greater, more frequent problem is that you are angry, and you simply don’t know how to get over it. Whether it shows itself as rage, impatience, silence, or withdrawal, anger will eat you up. This message examines the core causes, and provides insight on how to deal with it effectively.
Make no mistake, sex is powerful. The advertising industry has known that for a long time. It’s about time the church recognise this truth as well. The key is how you’ll direct that powerful force. This message examines Joseph and his temptation with Potiphar’s wife to understand more fully how lust attacks, and more importantly, how it can be overcome.
Eating and drinking is such an integral part of life and such a pleasure in this life. But not many of us would call ourselves a glutton. Not many of us have explored the connection between what we consume and our spiritual lives. This message will explore how gluttony can be a temptation for all, how self-control is life-giving, and lastly what is God’s vision beyond self control.
Being busy is an easy goal. It can also numb us from meaningful engagement with our lives. Sloth is not simply being lazy. And the remedy for sloth is not simply being busy. Removing sloth from our lives means to connect more meaningfully with a life of intentionality and purpose. This message looks at balancing our time, and reviving our hearts for all the right things.
Envy is the greatest of the seven deadly sins. It is hidden and deceptive, but powerful. In fact, envy is the first sin after Adam and Eve’s first sin. But with contentment, there is great gain, the apostle Paul says. As we identify and root out comparison in our lives, freedom and joy can grow.
