    When You Feel Like Giving Up, Part 1

    The Bible says there are two things that will hold you back as you run the race God sets before you. First, there are the things that weigh you down, such as unrealistic expectations or being stuck in the past. Second, there are sins, the things we know that are wrong but we do them anyway.

    Winning the Battle Inside Me, Part 2

    As Christians we are born again with a “new” nature through the Holy Spirit, yet our “old” sin nature still fights for control. The Apostle Paul reached a point in his walk with God where he was totally exhausted because of the intense war going on inside him. But, ultimately, Paul’s testimony offers us encouragement as we fight the same battle.

    You may feel totally defeated today. And you’re thinking, “I just want to give up!” Pastor Rick teaches if you’re ready to give up, that’s GOOD! You can stop trying to do everything on your own because it’s impossible. You can’t live life without Jesus. But Jesus can empower you with new life.

    Set Free From Me, Part 4

    Whenever we’re afraid, we need to turn our thoughts to God. This is how God’s Spirit sets us free from fear. The Bible says, “For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.” For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children.” (Romans 8:14-16 NLT)

    Making The Hard Changes in Me, Part 1

    The Bible says rebellion against God broke everything in life. Before sin there was no death, no sadness, no sorrow, and no difficulty in the world. It was only when everything got broken that sin brought death into the world. But God has not left us here without hope. He has sent us a Savior, in his Son, Jesus Christ.

    Imagine what it would be like if you tried to live a perfect life, but the way you keep things perfect is by avoiding any chance of making mistakes. You’d always be paralyzed by indecision. The Bible says the answer to this is Jesus Christ. You don’t have to be perfect because Jesus is, and that’s Good News.

    Making The Hard Changes in Me, Part 3

    Spiritual Transformation is a process of developing new habits over time. Habits become the building blocks of change and collectively shape our character. There is no such thing as instant maturity. It is a small, step-by-step, gradual, incremental process as the Holy Spirit guides us into deeper maturity.

    Making The Hard Changes in Me, Part 4

    Satan wants to establish a foothold in your life, and once he gets deep enough into an area of sin, he turns the foothold into a stronghold. Once that happens, it will be harder for you to take back control of your life. In this broadcast, Pastor Rick talks about strongholds and what we can do to protect ourselves against them.

    Why Is Life In This World So Hard? Part 1

    Why is this world so hard to live in? The Bible says it is because we all want to be our own boss, saying, “I know what will make me happy more than God does. I want to do live life on my own.” But here’s the Good News - God has not left us here without hope. He sent us a Savior, his Son, Jesus Christ. When we choose God, he will help you make it through the difficulties of life.

    Disappointment is a natural part of life – BECAUSE everything on this planet is broken and nothing works perfectly. But God doesn’t just leave us alone to sort it all out. The Good News is that God knows we’re in a mess and that’s why he sent Jesus to rescue us and to bring us home to heaven.

    Why Is Life In This World So Hard? Part 3

    When you get closer to God, his light reveals the reality of sin. We can see that it causes emotional distress and disappointment, relational distance and discord, financial difficulties, physical decay, deformities, death, and worst of all, a disconnect with God. But Jesus says we can take heart. He has overcome the world. He can fill the emptiness in your life and guide you through the tough times.

    God uses shortages to test our generosity and to grow our faith. It’s easy to be generous when you have a lot. But faithful people are generous even when they don’t have a lot.

    One of the challenges of living in a broken world is that it will fall apart on us at some point. If you think your life is beyond repair, you’re wrong. If you think that your best days are all behind you, you’re wrong. If you think it’s impossible for God to bring good out of bad, you’re wrong. No matter how broken your life may seem, no matter how badly things have fallen apart, Jesus can make you whole again.
