8/1/14 “Many Problems Are Self Created” – Pastor Shane Idleman

Many of our problems are created by our own deception…we are “hearing” but not “doing.” A recent example came via email: “I’m at a loss. My ‘Christian’ husband is verbally and physically abusive. Ironically, he thinks that I’m the problem; he sees no need to change. He’ll quote Scriptures about submission while yelling and cursing. His anger is also destroying our children. A home once filled with laughter and joy is now filled with fear and depression. We walk on eggshells and cherish the times when he is gone. He also loves his porn more than his family. I can no longer bear it. I never thought of divorce, but now its a daily struggle.”

A significant number of people are switching churches and/or discarding relationships. I’ve found that judging instead of loving often plays a role as seen in a recent correspondence, “I continue to move from church to church. I can’t seem to find a place where I fit. I’m beginning to wonder if I’m the problem!” This is an honest question that deserves a closer look. Here are a few points to consider before leaving a church or discarding fellowship:

This Christmas, Embrace the True Gospel

As mentioned last week: If we truly want to experience the power of God, we must surrender pivotal areas of our lives.

The final area of surrender is found in Matthew 16:24, “Then said Jesus unto his disciples, if any [man] will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.”
