Where you can find strength to overcome any temptation

October 17, 2013           

“Man shall not live by bread alone,
            but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.”

Matthew 4:4

There was a minister a few years ago who had a huge falling out when some very dark sins came to light. He was fired from his job, and it shook the foundations of the church where he was the pastor.

I heard him talk about his experience recently, and he recounted a time when he realized how serious his problem was. He started quoting Romans 6, memorized the chapter, and recited it every time he faced temptation. But in the midst of that, his problems only got worse as he fell deeper and deeper into his sin.

I hear people all the time say, “When the devil comes against you, just quote Scripture.” But quoting the Scriptures alone isn’t enough… you have to live by it! You can go right down the tubes quoting the Bible the whole way!

So don’t just quote the Bible… submit your life to the Bible. That doesn’t mean you won’t face temptation. But it does mean that when temptation comes, you’ll be poised to face it head-on and win because of the spiritual strength and stamina that comes from living by the Word of God!

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013

Dear Friend,

While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.

That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.

This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”

The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.

Thank you!
