Since I first grew out of the vine, I have spent years and years, and all I have done is just to rest in the vine. When the time of Spring came I had no anxious thought or care. The vine began to pour it's sap into me, and to give the bud and the leaf. And when summer came, I had no care; and in the...

In Romans chapter 7 Paul talks about this struggle with sin..my devotional this morning brought out the that Paul never names the sins he struggles with specifically.

Not all sexual desire is lust. God made sexual desire. It has its good place and it can, in fact, become an act of worship in the temple of marriage. But lust is sexual desire gone wrong.

In this all-out match against sin, others have suffered far worse than you, to say nothing of what Jesus went through—all that bloodshed! So don’t feel sorry for yourselves. Or have you forgotten how good parents treat children, and that God regards you as his children?

My dear child, don’t shrug off...

A friend of mine who recently got a copy of The Purity Driven Life asked me what my personal strategies were in dealing with sexual temptation. We started talking about the importance of the word of God, devotional time and memorizing scripture. Today as I was reading Proverbs Chapter 5 I was struck...

We prove ourselves by our purity, our understanding, our patience, our kindness, by the Holy Spirit within us, and by our sincere love...God’s power is working in us. We use the weapons of righteousness in the right hand for attack and the left hand for defense (2 Corinthians 6:6,7)

As a Christian ma...

Galatians 3:3 - Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort? I read this passage this morning.......and as I thought about my struggles with sin I recalled a verse I read this weekend. Romans 7:20 - Now if I do what I do not want to do,...
