Sexual things/images—do you ever think they control you instead of you controlling them?
Here is an upcoming national workshop that is going to be held in Indianapolis, IN the first weekend of April. I attended this workshop fourteen years ago in CA, and found it to be a great resource that equipped me with the tools needed to win the daily battle of sexual integrity in my life.
Sexual things/images are being shot at us in every direction, so it seems. Quite often I find other guys that are wanting to win this internal battle, too, but like I used to think, they feel like they just need to try harder or pray more. Prior to attending “Every Man’s Battle”, I didn’t know and wasn’t using all the tools that God has available for those that are wanting to find true freedom. God created my sexual being as VERY GOOD, but the one problem was I hadn’t been taught or trained to use it for good, as our society primarily promotes it from “it’s all about my pleasure” negative worldly view. There is a lot more to my story that I’m open to discussing with anyone.
If you are interested in the “Every Man’s Battle” (EMB) workshop click on the link below. Any full time pastor can attend free of charge. If you have interest, but financially don’t know how you can make it work, give me a call or send me an email.
Satan desires for you and me to be in bondage-while GOD has put a plan in place for us to experience true freedom.
Is pride and fear keeping you stuck in bondage? In Christ you can break the chains as you step out of your comfort zone.
If you are wanting a deeper/richer sexual life with your wife that has a WOW factor, GOD has the plan. As for me, the awesome rewards thus far have outweighed the work that it has taken Renee & I to get from point A to point B. It’s a working art in progress.
To me it seems like the ”Church” has missed the mark as this isn’t an issue that is commonly talked about. Is that the reason why the foundation of marriage is failing? Can the divorce rates (according to the Barna Research Group that are just as strong for Christian marriages as non-Christian marriage) be changed? What can I/we do to protect our marriages and reverse this trend? Do you know who’s plan you are using, GOD’s or the world’s? I strongly sense we are being massively deceived into believing Lucifer’s craftiness as he continues his master plan of deception. Terrible things happen, relationships are damaged, wounds are deep – but God has a plan for healing, restoration and transformation!
Then Jesus called to the crowd to come and hear. ”Listen,” he said, ”and try to understand. It’s not what goes into your mouth that defiles you; you are defiled by the words that come out of your mouth.” Then the disciples came to him and asked, “Do you realize you offended the Pharisees by what you just said?” Jesus replied, ”Every plant not planted by my heavenly Father will be uprooted, so ignore them. They are blind guides leading the blind, and if one blind person guides another, they will both fall into a ditch.” Then Peter said to Jesus, “Explain to us the parable that says people aren’t defiled by what they eat.” “Don’t you understand yet?”Jesus asked. Anything you eat passes through the stomach and then goes into the sewer. But the words you speak come from the heart-that’s what defiles you. For from the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, all sexual immorality, theft, lying, and slander. These are what defile you. Eating with unwashed hands will never defile you.” - Mathew 15:10-20 NLT
The Bible is teaching me new things about good vs. evil.
It’s not the sexual images that makes me sinful or defiles me in of its self, it’s the process of how I allow my mind/heart/spirit to filter those images that then has the potential of either luring me towards sinful actions of lusting/acting out. It’s only when I willingly choose in each moment to strive to live not for my own physical pleasure that I then am able to be a mirror reflection of my Creator and bring a smile upon HIS (my Daddy’s) face and HE communicates to me “Well Done Robb, I love it when you willing choose good. The actions or your heart enables me to know that you love ME”.
Thanks for being willing to read and entertain my passions and convictions. Challenging thoughts are welcome . . .
