Free from Sin

 
??"For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace" (Romans 6:14, NKJV).

 

Why shouldn't sin have dominion over us? Because we no longer possess a sin nature, but we have entered God’s empowerment, possessing the nature of Jesus Himself. We are free from the power of sin!

The Message says, "Sin can't tell you how to live." God's Word, the truth, declares here that gossip, slander and lying no longer have dominion over you. Adultery, sex outside of marriage, homosexuality, pornography or any other impurity no longer dominates you. Hatred, bitterness, unforgiveness, prejudice and envy no longer control you. Uncontrolled anger, rage and outbursts of wrath have lost their authority in your life. Stealing, substance abuse and alcohol addiction are no longer a master over you. Disobedience to authority, stubbornness and insubordination have lost their dominion over you. And the list continues. read more

Talking Faith

Below are some examples of how some well-known Christians use their testimony to talk about Christ.

"I give God all the credit for my existence, for everything that I've ever become. This thing called grace and mercy, that my mother used to talk about all the time, is all I got." -Steve Harvey, comedian, author

"I think that because inside of every one of us we have something tugging at us, telling us to believe in something, to have faith in something bigger than ourselves. [Jesus Christ through His Word] is actually the answer that people are looking for. They just don't know it." - Denzel Washington, actor

"The Gospels are for everybody from the smallest child to the wisest sage and I fall somewhere in the middle." --Mel Gibson, actor

"I came to faith as a young boy at 12 years old. It was a Sunday school teacher that lead me to the Lord. As a senior in high school, I recommitted my life. I was actually going to grow up and be a pastor, but then I got a job making movies and videos. And that's where the Lord's led me."--Ralph Winter, producer

Leaders Predict Where the Church is Going

Five Keys for 2010

There are 5 strategic keys that will help propel you into your future and the destiny God has for you this year. Ask Him for specific insight and direction for you and your life, and allow Him to manifest in these areas throughout 2010.

1. God is sounding a wake-up call.

God is sounding a wake-up call to the body of Christ! There has been a lull and a spirit of slumber that has spread over much of the body in the last couple of years. We have become satisfied with "church as usual." Unfortunately, many people have settled into a place of comfort and complacency—but God is shaking and waking this sleeping giant once again! read more

Avoid the ‘Wouldas’ and ‘Couldas’

Charisma tracked down a few veterans in the faith to give young people sage advice about faithfully standing the test of time. Go to mentors.charismamag.com and get advice to avoid your own "wouldas" and "couldas."


Embrace Change

One of the most important lessons for any leader to embrace is that change is constant, and change is our friend. God has ordained a life of change, for our entire lives. David wrote, "Because they do not change, therefore they fear not God" (Ps. 55:19). It is during times of change that we realize our need of God. read more

A Cry for Intimacy With God

I'm part of a generation that hungers to know God. We want a real relationship with Him—the kind that's filled with the laughter, tears and honesty even when it hurts. We want a relationship with God that isn't tampered with by artificial additives that promise to make it sweeter, sourer or tastier than it really is. We want an organic relationship with God.Why organic? read more

The Generational Elephant in the Room

For far too long young people have experienced God from one side of the church while the "older folks" resigned to do ministry from a separate corner. Why is there such a wide generation gap in today's church? Below you can hear Charisma's roundtable conversation with leaders from within the body of Christ. We talk about the generation gap and discuss a remedy.  In the comment section below tell us if you agree or disagree. It's high time we start talking about this elephant in the room.
