    The Aftermath of Sin: Condemnation or Conviction?
    In the aftermath of sin, do we allow condemnation from the accuser to take us deeper into the spiral of sin, or do we respond to conviction from the savior?

    The Right Thing in The Wrong Way
    One of the main strategies of the enemy is to get us to try to meet our God-given needs in ways that are not what God intends.  We see this in Genesis 3, and we have experienced it in our own lives.  As we understand and evaluate how we try to meet our basic needs, we will be more able to meet them as God intends.

    Your Enemy, The Liar
    There is a very real spiritual battle, and we have an enemy in the battle.  Through scripture, we see the truth about our enemy, the liar.  He wants us to get on the downward spiral of sin and temptation, and he lies to deceive us into destruction.   “Scouting” our enemy prepares us for defeating him, and it sets the stage as we move forward in this series to explore the ways out of the spiral and know more clearly God’s work in us.

    Days of Fasting

    We are days into our church-wide fast, and we may be wondering why “something” hasn’t happened yet.  In Isaiah 58, we find a great reminder that what matters most is not our days of fasting but instead our complete surrender and obedience to God in every area of our lives.

    Destination: Spiritual Maturity
    Spiritual maturity is an inner condition that produces external results.  Jesus used the image of a tree bearing fruit in discussing spiritual maturity.  In John 15, we see a daily “direction” that will lead us toward our desired destination.

    Destination: Healthy Relationships

    If we are going to reach our “destination” of having healthy relationships, we must consider who we are and what we contribute to our relationships – not just thinking about what the other person is or isn’t doing but looking at our own responsibilities.

    Direction Determines Destination
    As we begin a new series, we look to the basic principle in life that direction determines destination. We may have great intentions, but direction doesn't always match intention. Therefore, we must pay close attention to the steps we are taking because steps become a path that goes in a particular direction.

    King Herod felt that his power was threatened when he heard of Jesus’ birth, and he resorted to extraordinary measures.  We may not go to such extremes, but we often cling to control in our own lives as well.  Principles in Matthew help us learn how we can surrender and be free.
