God is worthy of endless praise for his strengthening work and infinite wisdom.
We can accomplish far more for the Lord together than we can individually, but we each must play our role.
Life is not about pleasing yourself, but about serving others for the glory of God.
Be careful never to allow the exercise of your personal freedoms in Christ to cause another Christian to stumble.
The gospel should affect the way we view our personal freedoms in Christ and keep us from being judgmental toward those who might have different convictions.
Love is not just a warm feeling; it is doing what God requires, and he requires that we urgently keep his commands.
God wants every believer to be subject to the government in both attitude and action.

The Gospel transforms the way we conduct ourselves toward believers in love and in peace toward the world.
Effective ministry in and through the church is advanced when everyone humbly uses their God-given gifts to serve one another.
Discerning God's will doesn't have to by a mystery. He has provided a way for us to discern his good, acceptable, and perfect will.

How do you overcome indwelling sin? This message explores how the Spirit secures our position in Christ, which sets us free from the power of sin and death.
True freedom from sin will never be found keeping the law (even though the law is good), because of the gigantic gap between the demands of the law and the sinfulness of the flesh. Only the cross of Christ can bridge that gap.
Being free from sin does not depend on keeping more rules, but on properly understanding the relationship between law and sin.
Paul shows us what it practically means to find your identity in Christ and then to walk in newness of life.
