Forgiven People Forgive

A Biblical Response to Forgiveness

Jeff Miller

Some have said that forgiveness is the most difficult commandment we are given as Christians. And why is that? Perhaps it is because it strikes at the core of our pride that says we deserve better than we are getting. Or, does it seem that if we forgive, we are letting that person “win” in a situation that hurt us in some way. In this short booklet, Pastor Jeff Miller shows us where the rubber meets the road; at the very heart of why we want to forgive others. Forgiveness is hard, but it must be the very essence of who we are, and we are called to do hard things.

Understanding Temptation

The War Within Your Heart

Mark Shaw

We can find victory over sin and temptation when we know our own specific sinful tendencies, the power of the enemy, and what he uses to tempt us. Knowing our enemy’s plan of attack can prepare our hearts to map out a strategy for overcoming temptation. Jesus was tempted in the same three basic ways in which we are tempted:

  • We can do what we want (Lust of the Flesh)
  • We can have what we want (Lust of the Eyes)
  • We can be what we want (Pride of Life)

Here you will find the biblical antidotes for each of these powerful temptations, and learn to be victorious over the temptations of the heart.
