freedom from sin - cross in the sunset

20 Aug Freedom in Christ: Part 2 – Sin

For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ!  ~Romans 5:17 (All verses are in NIV) In Part 1 of this series, we discussed how one element of God’s plan in sending the Messiah, Jesus, was to free us from the law. This freedom from the law brought about freedom from sin at the same time.  The law was brought in so that the trespass might increase. But where sin increased, grace increased all the more, ~Romans 5:20 Out of context, this verse may be slightly confusing, but the point the Apostle Paul is making here is that sin existed before the law.

21 Oct The Freedom of Forgiveness: Cutting The Tie

If you’ve ever heard Christian teaching on forgiveness, you may have come away feeling a little confused as to why we are to forgive one another, and how we should go about it.

06 May Video: What is Sozo?

Key points discussed in the video, “What is Sozo?” below. Sozo is a Greek word that was used in the New Testament over 110 times. It actually means to be “made whole”. Translators translated the word in three different ways, “saved”, “healed” and “delivered”. Sozo finds the wounds and lies, [and] finds the roots of issues that stop people from being able to deal with life and deal with issues coming into their life. Sozo helps you find, develop and heal the reasons why you don’t have a good relationship with each member of the Godhead. (Father God, Jesus, Holy Spirit) Sozo is not counseling. It is not just a “prayer” ministry (where someone prays FOR you). It is a team of people helping you make connection with the Godhead, and thus have a place to go to deal with all of the issues and crises that have happened with you. Sozo is a deliverance...
