BP#8 – Where Sin Begins.

2 Corinthians 10:5 says Paul takes captive every thought and makes it obedient to Christ. Thoughts and thinking is where sin begins. Stopping evil thoughts when they happen and wrong thinking in general, locking it up and asking Jesus to to destroy it and replace it with being filled with the Holy Spirit and His […]

BP#7 – It’s all about the Love.

Philippians 1:9-11 Paul says, This my prayer : that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ- […]

BP#6 – Where is the love ?

1 Corinthians 13 says even if I am totally involved at church and seem super spiritual or if I give all my money away and seem like the most generous person alive and don’t truly love others, I am just making noise, am really nothing and I gain nothing with God. Because real love is […]

BP#3 – Are you a people pleaser ?

Galatians 1:10 Paul says, Am I now trying to win the approval of men or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men I would not be a servant of Christ.. It’s either/or. Paul used to be a people pleaser  before God saved him. He was […]

BP#2 – Our way or the highway?

2 Corinthians 5:7  For we live by faith, not by site… Some find it easy sometimes to have faith for salvation, but then hard to have to live by faith. But really they are one in the same. If we believe in Him it has to be for everything. Our eternal life and this life. […]

BP#1 Humility and Pride
