When we don’t obey God, He doesn’t lose—we do! So, when we consider all the things that He’s told us to do and we’ve decided we’re not going to do them, we’re the ones that have always ended up in a mess. And that’s especially true when it comes to our finances. Learn more about how to get out of debt on today’s Treasured Truth.
Today we take a break from our normal programming lineup so Pastor Ford can answer your questions about the Bible and the Christian life. The topics he’ll be explaining include how to deal with infidelity in marriage and the importance of being sober in the Christian life, especially as marijuana is becoming one of the most commonly used “recreational” drug throughout America.
When we desire restoration, we first must recognize what’s wrong and then do something about it. Sometimes we encounter problems or issues, and we want to give up instead of resolving them. But the passage we’ll be studying today encourages us not to give up, but instead to grow up. Learn more on today’s Treasured Truth.
As we begin a study today from 2 Corinthians, and consider why God gives us challenges and liabilities that we must deal with in our lives, Pastor Ford will challenge us to consider this question—Is it conceivable that you have your disability not as a liability, but as a possibility?
Pastor Ford will explain today that we need to realize that we can’t fix what we can’t face and we can’t correct what we won’t confront. In order for us to be restored, God first wants us to acknowledge that we have issues, that we have sinned, and that we’ve broken fellowship with Him. When we do that, then the restoration can begin.
