Seven Ways to Care for Your Wife

In that extremely complex and, at times, hard to understand a section of the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Corinthians, we come across the comparison between the married and the unmarried (1 Cor. 7). In short, the Apostle insists that marriage is good (and the norm) but that it brings with it a division of attention. Those who are married have a preoccupation with their spouse. Those who are unmarried are free to more fully “care about the things of the Lord” while “the married man cares about…how to please his wife” and “the married woman cares about…how to please her husband.” This forces us to ask...

Hope for the Sexually Broken Part Five

Over the last several weeks we have looked at how God through Christ sets men free from sexual sin. Sexual sin is a serious threat to the local church. Men are being consumed by this sin on a daily basis. Many of these men feel out of control and helpless.

Fighting Sexual Sin with Joy in the Lord

Joy may not be the first thought you think of when it comes to sexual sin. In my experience with working with those who are addicted to pornography they often experience a lot of guilt and shame, not joy and freedom.

We don’t rejoice when someone is engaged in sexual sin, we put an arm around them, walk alongside them, and speak the truth in love. Finding joy in the Lord is critical to overcoming sexual sin.  Let’s look at how the Bible...

Hope for the Sexually Broken Part One

There is a war being waged for the attention, mind, and affections of men. It is a bloody war that does not care about the number of casualties it consumes and there will be no cease-fire until every man is conquered and made a slave. This is the war against the world, the flesh and the devil regarding sexual sin, particularly in the area of sexual sin and pornography. There is a vast amount of Christian men who are being consumed by this enticing sin as their families and loved ones suffer the consequences. These men need to be freed...
