Taking Responsiblity

This is the sixth message in a mini-series called Growth Busters

“The word of the Lord came to me: ‘What do you people mean by quoting this proverb about the land of Israel:
The parents eat sour grapes,
and the children’s teeth are set on edge?’
As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, you will no longer quote this proverb in Israel. For everyone belongs to me, the parent as well as the child—both alike belong to me. The one who sins is the one who will die.”

Ezekiel 18:1-4 (HCSB)


Inordinate Affection

This is the fourth message in a mini-series called Growth Busters

“So if you have been raised with the Messiah, seek what is above, where the Messiah is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on what is above, not on what is on the earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with the Messiah in God. When the Messiah, who is your life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory. Therefore, put to death what belongs to your worldly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust (inordinate affection – KJV), evil desire, and greed, which is idolatry.”

Colossians 3:1-5 (HCSB)


Thinking More Highly

This is the third message in a mini-series called Growth Busters

“Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God. For by the grace given to me, I tell everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he should think. Instead, think sensibly, as God has distributed a measure of faith to each one.”

Romans 12:2-3 (HCSB)


Being Double-Minded

This is the second message in a mini-series called Growth Busters

“Now if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives to all generously and without criticizing, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith without doubting. For the doubter is like the surging sea, driven and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. An indecisive man is unstable in all his ways.”

James 1:5-8 (HCSB)


Selfish Desire

This is the first message in a mini-series called Growth Busters

“What is the source of wars and fights among you? Don’t they come from the cravings that are at war within you? You desire and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. You do not have because you do not ask. You ask and don’t receive because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your evil desires.”

James 4:1-3 (HCSB)
