The Transformation of the Inner Man

(This is based on a teaching I have given in a bible study) Text: Philippians 2:12,13 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in…

I write this article today in response to a “hyper individualistic grace” message that believes “high commitment service orientated” churches and preaching is a mixture of the law and gospel; they seem to think that an emphasis on serving in the church can confuse people into thinking that salvation is mixed with works. These same…

Twelve Signs that Show Whether You Are Headed for Breakthrough or Burnout
