    John 5:37-39 And the Father who sent me has himself testified concerning me. You have never heard his voice nor seen his form, nor does his word dwell in you, for you do not believe the one he sent. You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These more

    We are so focused on the sensual and emotionalized the spirit of God, that we have distracted our attention from the real issues of the church and we have allowed our hearts and actions to be paralyzed.

  • Love: A Fruit Of The Spirit Series

    Contributed by Patrick Nix on Jul 9, 2010

    The battle that every Christian fights is not won or lost by whether we get more of God (we’ve already got all He’s going to give: 100%), the real issue is whether or not God will get more of us!

    The Bible is clear: if you are Christian, then you have the Holy Spirit living inside of you… buried below layers of body and soul (Romans 8:9-11). He’ll always be there – never leaving or forsaking you (Hebrews 13:5). In fact, the Apostle Paul even sarcastically reminds a church that has more

    Genuine joy comes after we do what Christ bids us do, and is grounded in our relationship to Him. In fact, the real issue is not our joy but His.

    If you want joy! What a ridiculous premise! Of course you want joy. Of course we want to be happy. Of course all of us want to feel deep satisfaction with life. We want joy. That's just self-evident. The trouble is, we don't know how to get that joy. We don't understand where joy comes from, more
