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.”

Defeating Pride, Part 2

He was the greatest person who ever lived. He was also the most humble. I’m speaking, of course, of Jesus, the only begotten Son of God, without blemish, without sin, who the Bible says humbled Himself to the point of death, even death on a cross. Today, Ron shares more about the example of humility Christ gave to us. But first, he points to another man, a man to whom Jesus Himself gave high praise during His life on Earth.

Defeating Pride, Part 1

God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble. Well, it was Satan himself, who at one time was the angel of God, Lucifer, who was kicked out of heaven because of his pride. And he has been appealing to our own sense of pride ever since. This is the first of the seven deadly sins. It’s also the deadliest, because it sets the foundation for all the deadly sins that follow. How can we overcome it once and for all? Answers come your way next, as Ron continues his teaching series, “Undefeated: Overcoming the Deadly Sins that Drag You Down.”

More Than Conquerors, Part 2

The greatest obstacles that stand in our way of living the victorious Christian life are the world, the flesh and the devil. But because of Christ, we are already more than conquerors over all three. Well, you may not always feel like a conqueror, but you are. Today, Ron offers us some biblical proof for that claim, reminding us of who and what we are in Christ.

“In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.”  That’s Romans eight, thirty-seven, and this is Something Good. Well, back in the Sixth Century, Pope Gregory the First came up with a list of seven deadly sins. Pride, anger, lust, laziness, gluttony, envy, and greed. For the next couple of weeks Ron will take you through each of them, in his brand new teaching series, “Undefeated: Overcoming the Deadly Sins that Drag You Down.”

The Day Jesus Rose from the Dead, Part 1

No one should have been surprised at the empty tomb. Jesus had predicted His own resurrection more than once.  Today Ron takes us to that glorious Saturday morning when God rolled away the stone, conquered sin and death, and paved the way for all of us to have eternal life. Along the way, he offers overwhelming proof that the resurrection was no hoax, but rather a fulfillment of biblical prophecy for which there is no viable alternative explanation.

The Day Jesus Died

Jesus uttered seven phrases as He hung on Calvary’s cross. He made a request to the apostle John, He offered salvation to a criminal hanging next to Him, and He said two things to no one in particular. But Jesus said three things directly to God, each of them a heartfelt cry from a son to his father. Today Ron takes a look at these three key phrases as he continues his teaching series, “What’s So Good About Good Friday?”
