“How can I control sinful impulses?”

spiritual battleImpulse control is never easy. All of us struggle with overcoming sinful impulses. James says, “Each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed” (James 1:14). Part of the human condition is to feel impulses, and part of the Christian life is to control them.

Impulse control has been a struggle for us since the fall. Eve saw that the fruit was “desirable” (Genesis 3:6), and she chose to take it rather than control her impulse. Today, we still struggle. Often, impulses seem so strong as to overpower all scruples, commitments, and common sense. We feel that giving in is our only option. We have impulses to make frivolous purchases, to overeat, to have illicit sex, and to do many other things we know we shouldn’t. Full Story

Capturing Your Family StoriesCapturing Your Family Stories - There are so many parts to your family story. Your children need to know where you and your parents and grandparents grew up, what your childhood was like, interesting events you witnessed or participated in. They also need to know the spiritual stories-the ones about God's teachings, provisions, blessings, answers to prayers, and His saving grace. As believers, you and your family have a story, and it's invaluable.

 

In Remembrance
In Rememberance Of: Thomas Waters | September 23, 2014 - February 23, 2014Thomas Waters
September 23, 2014 - February 23, 2014

Thomas accepted Christ and was baptized at Morning Star Baptist Church of Christ under the pastoral leadership of Rev. Dr. George Jacob Garnett. He was an active member of the church serving as Superintendent of the Sunday school, however it was under the pastorate of Rev. Dr. Samuel Ray that he became a Deacon, a position he was most proud of. He belonged to other organizations including the Sanctuary Choir, Samuel Ray Revival Choir, and Men’s Chorus. In days past, Thomas sang on the Senior choir #2 where his tenor voice could be heard singing the solo to the anthems “Let Mount Zion Rejoice” and “Sanctus”.

 

Bible Study
Peter the FishermanPeter the Fisherman - Peter is often spoken of in disrespectful terms as though he was foolishly outspoken or always putting his foot in his mouth. I even heard a sermon in which he was called a fool for getting out of the boat to walk on the water. However, I think Peter showed a lot of courage and faith and simply wore his heart on his sleeve. He had the courage of his convictions and was not afraid to show his emotions.

 

Health & Wellness
Heatstroke: Symptoms and TreatmentHeatstroke: Symptoms and Treatment - Heat stroke is the most serious form of heat injury and is a medical emergency. If you suspect that someone has heat stroke -- also known as sunstroke -- you should call 911 immediately and render first aid until paramedics arrive. Heat stroke can kill or cause damage to the brain and other internal organs. Although heat stroke mainly affects people over age 50, it also takes a toll on healthy young athletes.
