Our new Friday teaching is "Hard Passages". No matter if you are a Bible scholar or new to reading the Word, there are passages that we have trouble understanding. Today we look at passages that people use to question eternal security. It causes us to question, "Have I done enough?" or "Is God so mad at me that he will remove my salvation." The key is to keep your eyes on Jesus and you will be secure in the Lord. We look at Matthew 7:21-23, Matthew 12:32, and Revelation 3:5 as they pertain to eternal security.

2 Corinthians 10:4 "The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds." We have truth that can demolish these strongholds. The Holy Spirit lets us see them for what they are and to bring every thought to obedience in Jesus Christ. We can experience true freedom.

  • Bob calls to share his victory over depression through coming to understand the grace of Jesus Christ.

Bob talks about the recent terrorist attack in England. It causes many to question, 'what would I happen if I died?'. Others will look to what we can do to protect ourselves and live in safety. These acts of terror disrupt our minds and make us think the worst could come at any moment. That's why we need to be anchored to truth and be prepared for death. And that's where the Gospel message answers and gives hope.

  • Myles wonders if a litmus test for the Gospel might be that of unconditional love since unconditional love is only found in Jesus Christ.

  • Paul finds himself in a constant state of anxiety. He asks "what do I think about", based on Philippians 4:8

How do we overcome emotional problems? How do we get out of those feelings of anxiety, or self-pity, or fear, or anger, or depression? All month we've been giving that prescription and that prescription is truth. Romans 1:24, 25 "Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen."

  • Arthur asks about self-help and higher consciousness.
  • Is it Biblical to take a medication for depression while not totally withdrawing from Him, but not praying and reading the Word as I did pre-depression?
  • What does it mean to "walk by the spirit"

Jesus promised the disciples the Holy Spirit. John 16:12-15 "I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you. All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you."

  • Davis asks what are the laws written on our heart?

There is no good news apart from the grace of God. The simple gospel is simply grace. The new life you have in Christ, the forgiveness you have in Christ, and the freedom you have in Christ are all gifts of grace, given freely and without conditions. His presence in you is grace. He freely chose to abide with you and to open the way for you to abide with him. The gospel is grace from start to finish.

  • Acts 20:24 "However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God's grace."

We all want peace in our life. But all too often we walk a different path. One of fear, anxiety, anger, self-pity, depression, and despair. But there is a better way. We can choose the godly perspective and live with renewed minds. Let the Spirit renew your mind and life will be completely different.

  • Diogenes wants to know if it's unreasonable to expect God to heal him of his stroke.

What we think about our life will determine how we feel. We can look at the life with a worldly perspective or a Godly perspective. If we look at it through a worldly perspective we'll have misplace dependencies and unrealistic expectations built upon wrong premises. If we're going to walk the pathway to peace we have to renew our mind with the God's truth. And that is through a walk of faith and a heart of thankfulness which leads to the peace of God which guards our heart and mind.

  • Clay voices his concern about the pop culture invading churches in music and prayer.
