God's grace is so often misunderstood. Are we entitled to it? Do we earn it? Are we unworthy of it? Should anyone be denied God's grace? This beloved parable of the 'Prodigal Son' answers these questions.
Temptation to sin is always with us. Ever since Adam and Eve fell to the serpent's lure, the human race has been enticed with sin. If we are to experience the freedom of overcoming, we must learn how to handle the temptations of the world, the flesh, and the devil.
What is God doing when he brings us into a time of affliction? Is it possible that he is actually seeking to accomplish something of great value in our lives? The apostle Paul told the Corinthians that it was for the purpose of getting him to trust God more and trust himself less. Affliction would appear to be both inevitable and indispensable for the child of God who wants to grow deeper in his faith and in his prayers.
In every area of life where overcoming is called for, God has provided us with a wonderful and powerful resource for achieving some success, and that is his Word. The living word of God abiding in the mind and heart of the believer makes one strong and able to overcome even the evil one.
Throughout our lives we find ourselves being overcome and defeated by issues and circumstances, and also wanting to prevail over those things that hold us back, keep us in bondage, and rob us of peace and joy. The Bible says that "we are more than conquerors through him who loved us" (Romans 8:38). If this is true, then why do we often feel more like the conquered than the conquering? This message introduces a new series that will explore what God's Word says about overcoming in the various areas of our lives, and how Christ is our only hope for victory.
