I AM the Bread of Life, Part 1

Throughout His earthly ministry, Jesus made several “I am” statements. I am the way, the truth and the life. I am the vine.  I am the door.  But the first of these statements, from John chapter six, was “I am the bread of life.” Today Ron takes an in-depth look at these words as he moves forward his series, “Why Jesus? Seven Reasons Why He Is Still The One And Only.”

Defeating Gluttony, Part 2

Self-indulgence is the enemy of self-denial, and the enemy of Christian discipleship. Those aren’t my words. They’re the words of Dr. Ron Jones, lead pastor at Atlantic Shores Baptist Church in Virginia Beach Virginia. Well, the world preaches self-improvement and self-indulgence. Jesus taught self-denial and self-restraint. Today, Ron sets the table for us on how to overcome the deadly sin of gluttony.

Defeating Gluttony, Part 1

You may think of gluttony as being addicted to eating too much. But there’s far more to it than that. The Bible has plenty to say about gluttony. And when it does, it always includes words of caution about drunkenness. In fact, gluttony is a word used to describe excessive eating, excessive drinking, or both. Ron digs in to the subject of gluttony today, as he continues his teaching series, “Undefeated: Overcoming the Deadly Sins that Drag You Down.”

Defeating Laziness, Part 2

A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest, and poverty will come on you like a robber, and want like an armed man.” That’s Proverbs twenty-four, verses thirty-three and thirty-four. Being lazy may seem harmless enough … certainly not as destructive as anger, pride or lust. But there’s a reason slothfulness finds its way into this list of the seven deadly sins. Ron tells us all about it next, as he continues his teaching series, “Undefeated: Overcoming the Deadly Sins That Drag You Down.”

Today, we come to the fourth of the seven deadly sins, laziness. At first blush, laziness doesn’t seem to be all that problematic. Certainly not at destructive as pride, anger or lust, the first three deadly sins. But as you’ll see in the next few moments together, perpetual laziness brings with it some rather severe consequences.

Defeating Lust, Part 1

Consider these words of Jesus from the Sermon on the Mount: “You have heard it said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart." Well, Jesus gave a lot of hard sayings during His life and ministry. The one you just heard was perhaps one of the hardest. What did He mean?  What are the implications for you and me? Answers come your way next, as Ron continues his teaching series, “Undefeated: Overcoming the Deadly Sins That Drag You Down.”

Defeating Anger, Part 2

That which begins in the heart can only be overcome when we have a change of heart. Anger is like that. It begins in our hearts and, if not kept in check, can lead to angry words, angry actions, or both. To help us overcome this deadly sin, Ron takes us to the words of Jesus as continues his series, “Undefeated: Overcoming the Deadly Sins That Drag You Down.”
