The Key to Winning the Battle Against Sin
June 11, 2013
For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure has come. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that Day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing.
2 Timothy 4:6-8
Years ago, a seminary professor by the name of Dr. Jeff Ray was teaching a class on preaching. Dr. Ray was 85 years old at the time, and was lecturing this particular day on the subject of the ethics of ministry. So the class got into a deep discussion on the morality of the pastor of a church.
During the discussion, one of the students piped up and said, “Dr. Ray, how old do you have to be before you stop struggling with lust?” Dr. Ray stopped and though for a moment, scratched his head and said, “I don’t really know, but it’s somewhere beyond 85!”
The struggle against sin is a battle that goes on all the days of the believer’s life. Whatever your particular sin struggle may be, there’s never a point in time where the enemy looks at you and says, “Okay, boys. He’s had enough. Let’s move on to someone else!” Satan doesn’t give up that easily.
The enemy you face has an unbelievable resolve. Yet in Christ, you have everything you need to fight well, finish the race, and keep the faith. And when your race is finished, you’ll experience final and definite victory over the sin in your life!
WIN THE BATTLE AGAINST SIN BY FIGHTING THE GOOD FIGHT, FINISHING YOUR RACE, AND KEEPING THE FAITH!

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?”
