If we are to experience gender equality the way the Word of God describes it, we must be willing to set aside all stereotypes we have of males and females. Although men and women may not be seen as equals in the eyes of the world, they are in God’s eyes. The Bible goes to great lengths to teach us about true submission not just for women, but for men as well.

When we spend time with other believers, the message that we should die to sin is something we hear so often that it can become a cliché. We should definitely deal with this issue, but the problem is that the more we focus on not committing a particular sin, the more we find we are still sinning in that area. When we are in Christ, we are already dead to sin. The spiritual battle we fight is waged in our minds, and our entire lives are influenced by what we think and believe. To support...

When we are born again, not only are we changed, but we also exchange everything we are not for everything that Jesus is. He is wisdom, righteousness, redemption, and holiness. We become these things when we are in Christ and he is in us. Each of us must decide to let him live through us by submitting and turning ourselves over to him, and acknowledging that we are not successful in our own ability.

Many people constantly struggle with the “I am a Christian, but what about sin?” issue. If we have been born again, we are free from our old, sinful nature; but to be free from sin actions, we must renew our minds and learn to think differently. Jesus Christ died for us while we were still sinners, so that His grace would be available to save us from our sins. The righteousness He has for us allows us to live victoriously. This gift is offered to us by God’s favor, and all we need to do to...

When we look at godly relationships between men and women, it is with an eye toward operating in biblical equality. This equality does not just apply to marriage, but to all aspects of life, including the ministry. Service to God is an open opportunity for everyone, regardless of gender or marital status. It is wrong to allow worldly traditions to contradict the Word of God in this area and set up parameters on who is qualified to preach. Whether male or female, we must all yield ourselves to...

In the Bible, there is a clear distinction between the old covenant before the cross, and the new covenant after the cross. Under the old covenant, the children of Israel would only receive God’s blessings if they perfectly obeyed His commandments. By comparison, under the new covenant, we are blessed because we are in Christ Jesus. Righteousness is a gift we receive by faith in Him. The cross changed everything for us, including how we pray.

Done properly, prayer is not just communicating with God, but it is also communing with Him. This loving communion should be constant, not just for a few minutes each day. We must approach our heavenly Father as a real person, not as a religious symbol. With this kind of attitude, we can magnify Him over any issues we face, and acknowledge that His name is above all other names. Coming before God because we want to, not because it is religiously mandated, empowers our prayer life. To...

Our beliefs are so powerful that most of the uncomfortable issues we face are the results of wrong-believing. What we think determines what we do, and we spend a large amount of time trying to live right without first believing right. Our prayer life is an example. We are supposed to get results every time we pray. When we pray in faith, and not simply recite words, we will see the manifestations.

As Christians, one of the key issues in our lives is whether or not we know who we are in Christ. If we do not understand that we are a spirit possessing a soul and living in a physical body, then we will go through life thinking that we are our body or our soul. Our body is what gives us authority in this world, but it is not the real person. We tend to be more familiar with our physical house than our genuine self, but when we are born again and become a new creation, the old self dies. We...

Jesus accepts us as we are, regardless of the emotional baggage we may be dragging around with us; but His intention is to transform us. Christians must understand that transformation should happen in our lives, but we will not experience any change until we understand our true identity. Our beliefs affect our entire lives, and wrong-believing is behind every fear, addiction, shame, and other struggle we have.

When we hear the phrase, “come as you are,” in relation to church attendance, sometimes we assume we can remain as we are. God’s love and grace allow us to come to Him as we are, without having to be qualified to be in His presence. No matter what state we are in when we come to Him, He will cause something in us to change. To support the ministry financially, text "CDMPodcast" to 74483 or visit www.worldchangers.org.

As Christians who have been born again, we should see real life transformation, but many people are still waiting to experience it. This delay can only happen if we have been lied to about being born again. Wrong-believing puts us in bondage, because it causes us to live wrong. We make the mistake of focusing on living right without paying attention to believing right. Believing in Jesus and what He has done frees us from fear, shame, guilt, addictions, and whatever else afflicts us. To...

When God created the garden of Eden and everything in it, and put Adam and Eve in charge, everything was perfect. They were created as one, they had an equal partnership, and both had direct access to and unlimited fellowship with God. The ideal situation existed with both partners exercising dominion over the earth together. The serpent opposed God’s plan of male-female equality and tried to destroy the woman and her seed; but God still had a plan to restore mankind. To support the...

When we study the topic of prayer, we must understand that it is God’s will for our prayer lives to have impact. In other words, we are supposed to receive answers when we pray. There is a right way and a wrong way to pray, and during His ministry, Jesus identified the wrong ways to pray. When we know what prayer is not, we will be less likely to fall victim to religion-based prayer instead of grace-based prayer. Prayer that is acceptable to God comes from the heart, and the attitude of our...

The essence of something is its very nature, and when we study the essence of prayer, we must take into account how powerful it really is. Prayer is communicating with God, not simply a recital or a constant repetition where we do all the talking. If we have reduced our prayer life to this level, it has become merely words that we say. The purpose of prayer is for fellowship and communion with God. This truly connects us with Him. To support the ministry financially, text "CDMPodcast" to...

If we are not careful, pride can sneak up on us, and we can find ourselves operating in it without ever being aware of it. It can manifest itself either as pride and arrogance, or as timidity and shyness. Proud people disregard the Word of God, choosing to exalt themselves instead of Him. Pride causes us to be self-centered, and when we find ourselves there, we are trusting ourselves instead of God. To support the ministry financially, text "CDMPodcast" to 74483 or visit...

As Believers, it is important for us to be able to authenticate our trust in God. When we trust Him, we lean on Him confidently, but if we have confidence solely on ourselves, we will not last very long. If we do not realize that we need God, we will end up in failure. We must begin developing this trust in Him long before trouble hits, and we can do that with the little things in our everyday lives. This step leads us to faith, and it will empower us.

When we strike a balance between faith and grace, we learn that trust is the currency of the kingdom of God. This trust teaches us that God is faithful, and He will do exactly what He says He will do. When we examine the word “trust,” it must go beyond the simple cliché most people utter when they say they trust God. For many, this is just a word, but it actually boils down to what we practice beyond the cliché. As Believers, we must take the steps to ensure we are leaning on Him. To...

As Believers, we do not have to chase after the power of influence, because God has already given us the ability to influence people’s lives. This is something the enemy does not want us to understand. What impacts others the most are our words, actions, attitudes, behaviors, and our choices. We know that Jesus was the greatest Influencer of all time, and the Bible is tremendously influential. When we study this living book, we learn important lessons on how to produce a godly effect on...

Influence is defined as the ability to produce an effect on others without any apparent exertion, and in our soul-winning efforts, the power of our influence is important. Jesus set the example for us during His earthly ministry, and the Holy Spirit provides the opportunity to continue that ministry today. When we depend on Him, our lives become a living testimony to God To support the ministry financially, text "CDMPodcast" to 74483 or visit www.worldchangers.org.

If we are to see manifestations in our life, we must develop our faith, and we do that by digging deep into the Word of God. Whether we need healing, deliverance, prosperity, wholeness, or anything else in our lives, Jesus has provided it for us because He loves us. Believing that we have a right to all He has made available to us through the shedding of His blood is an important part of our faith.

We could labor on our own for years, but one moment of God’s favor turns things around and causes restoration and change in our life. Favor cannot be bought or earned, but through Jesus, we have an introduction into it. God bestows favor on us as a gift and a token of love, and this favor can be defined as friendship. We are to abide in this special place, which produces uncommon results and changes the outcome of situations in ways we could never imagine. To support the ministry...

When we are highly developed in something, manifestations will develop quickly, and our faith is no different. There is a link between grace and faith, and also a difference between works of the Law and works of faith. The will of God is for all the spiritual promises made to us in the Bible to be manifested in our life, and our faith is the bridge that connects the spiritual to the physical.

Sometimes we may wonder whether works are necessary now that we are under grace. If we choose to depend on the Law of Moses to justify us, then that means we are declaring ourselves righteous by self-performance. Grace means we no longer have to perform according to the Law to get God to bless us or show us favor. But we must not get confused between the works of the Law and the works of faith.
