Lust, Hedonism and Vain Glory
Sacred Living in a Secular World #3 • October 7, 2018 • Mike Stubbs
Sin hasn’t changed very much – it’s whatever appeals to our eyes, appetites and ego. The difference is in its power. While it once left us as slaves with no choice, we are now free in Christ to choose whom we will serve. We are free to live sacred lives in a secular world.

2018 Spiritual Warfare Series #3 • August 19, 2018 • Mike Stubbs
Prayer is intentionally bold and powerful disruption of the devil’s plans through the delegated authority of Jesus Christ.

Purpose is a strong motivational force. When it is lost, the individual feels equally lost. When it is found, it rejuvenates with life-force from the Creator.

Humility Comes Before Honor
July 8, 2018 • Mike Stubbs
Summertime brings with it a lot of connections with other people – family, friends and your fellow believers in Christ in a more relaxed, casual atmosphere. With it comes the opportunity to learn much more about others – some good and some not-so-good things.
