Cary Cox, from Romans 8:12-14. Paul teaches that the Holy Spirit always leads believers to go to war against the sin in our lives. But what does killing sin look like? How do we follow the Spirit into this pursuit?
Cary Cox, from Romans 8:4. Why are we declared righteous in Christ? For what purpose are we not condemned? Paul shifts his focus from justification to sanctification; from our positional righteousness in Christ, to our practical obedience in this life, by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Cary Cox, from Romans 6:19-23. In Romans 6, Paul lays out 2 (and only 2) paths of living. One is the path of sin that leads to death and destruction. The other path is the way of faith-fueled holiness, through Jesus Christ, which leads to eternal life. You can’t walk the path of sin and end in heaven. It matters how we live.
Jacob Bentley discusses true, God-glorifying repentance. It produces the fruit of holiness and sanctification in a church. From 2 Corinthians 7:2-13.
Cary Cox, from Hebrews 5:11-6:1. As the writer of Hebrews leads up to his infamous warning about falling away from the faith, he shows us what leads to apostasy. How do we live a life that is apostasy-proof?
Cary Cox, from Hebrews 5:11 – 6:3. The writer pauses his teaching on Christ’s priesthood to give a serious warning. He will warn against apostasy – turning finally from the faith. But first, he tells us what leads to apostasy: prolonged spiritual immaturity, which is caused by laziness in the things of God. When we fail to grow up in Christ we are walking on dangerous ground.
