Christian Motivation - THE TRUTH IS DIFFICULT - This Will Change Your Life. For the message of the cross is foolishness to those indeed perishing, but to us being saved it is the power of God. Speaker: Stewart Loy
Bill Winston (January-17-2020) Sermon: Fearless Faith - Living the Higher Life. Many Christians think that living by faith is hard when the truth is the exact opposite. Faith is the easiest, simplest and most productive way to live. The life of faith only becomes difficult when you try to mix it with works. Our faith is a requirement for receiving anything from God. It's Gods' desire that we live on a higher level of faith.
Joyce Meyer (January-15-2020) Daily Devotion: How to Win in Life.
Most of us are happy when we get what we want. That’s human nature. But when we walk with God as we should, other things become more important than seeing our desires fulfilled—things like seeking God’s desires for our lives, hearing His voice as we make decisions, and being obedient to His leading in every situation.
Dave and I once saw a picture in a store in the mall, and I wanted to buy it. Dave didn’t think we needed it, so I threw one of my silent temper tantrums; I simply became quiet because I was angry.
“You okay?” Dave asked.
“Fine. I’m fine, fine, just fine.” I responded with my mouth while my mind was thinking, You always try to tell me what to do. What can’t you just leave me alone and let me do what I want to do? Neh, neh, neh—.
I continued pouting for about an hour. I was trying to manipulate Dave. I knew that with his peaceful, phlegmatic personality, he would rather let me have my way than fight with me. I was too immature in the Lord to understand that my behavior was ungodly.
I began to push Dave to buy the picture, and we finally bought it. As I placed it in my home, the Holy Spirit said to me, “You know, you really didn’t win. You got your picture, but you still lost because you didn’t do it My way.”
The only way to win in life is to do things God’s way. Then, even if we don’t get what we want, we have the great satisfaction of knowing we have obeyed His voice—and that outlasts the satisfaction that comes with any earthly possession or achievement.
Prayer Starter: Father, I want to do things Your way. Please continue to change me so my thoughts, words, attitudes and actions reflect Your character in everything I do. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

TD Jakes (January-04-2020) Sermon: Your Path to Resurrection Power & Life.
Do you feel that you are stuck at a crossroads and unsure which direction you should choose? God can liberate you from the distractions of bondage. He can lead you into the freedom you need to understand you purpose!
You have an ultimate purpose that God has destined for you, something greater than where you have been. All past accomplishments pale in comparison to this purpose, because none of them have quenched the thirst fulfilled only by becoming who God designed you to be!
Bishop T.D. Jakes shares a powerful lesson on how to choose a path at a crossroads, knowing how God desires you to proceed. You will learn that the destiny created for you far exceeds your expectations! Thank you for partnering with us in sharing this message of hope with people around the world.
