Be Strong — Part 2: Love God, Love His Word

One of the most important and eternal investments a man can make into his family is his personal love of God’s Word. It is one thing to force his kids to conform to the standard of God’s Word. But it is another thing entirely to teach them to love it. Forced submission will often end in rebellion, or it may go the other direction and end in legalism. We need to first LOVE Christ, then love His Word. We need to teach it AND example it.

Here is a sermon clip from Session Two of the BE STRONG conference.

Make WAR

We are excited to promote the SWO13 Purity Conference, “Make War, Not Love- A Violent Fight for Purity.” Plan to attend and register soon. Last year’s event sold out and this one is filling up fast.

The focus this year is from 1 Corinthians 15:1-2 — “Now I would remind you, brothers, of the Gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you – unless you believed in vain.”

The trend in purity events over the past twenty years has been centered around the commitments people make. The goal is worthy, but the focus must be the Gospel. Scripture is clear that our lives are defined by CHRIST’S righteousness; and the holiness we live in is by Him and for Him.

Our goal in this conference will be to drive students deeper into the truth of the Gospel and to point them toward the realization of purity through the power of the Gospel, not because they have the strength or the pressure to “commit” to purity. Christ is already committed to it. He is in me. That is the hope of glory. That is the hope of the Gospel. That is the hope for pure lives.

See you in February.
