Regard No One According To The Flesh

[Message given at Momma Jo’s, at the Andre House in Phoenix, October 2018]

What I want to look at today is emotions—how do we take our emotions captive to the obedience of Christ?

The Power Of False Beliefs

Before Christ came into my life I was a lost and broken soul, desperate to hide, cover, escape, and control my shame.  I couldn’t accept love from another human being when I believed I was unacceptable; I didn’t know how to receive love, I didn’t know how to give love, and it was inconceivable to me that Father God could possibly have anything but disgust and disdain for me.

How can a young man accept love from others when he “knows” he is unacceptable–when he believes he is unlovable, undesirable, unworthy, dirty, and defective?  He searches for a motive–he wonders… Continue reading “The Power Of False Beliefs” »
