Headship: Radical Servanthood

By Taffi Dollar

Summary

Jesus is our example of how a servant’s heart is necessary for headship. Jesus came to offer all of what He has to everyone, male and female, and allow everyone to partake of His fullness. He overcame the enemy when He died on the cross, went to hell, and was resurrected. He wants all His children to benefit from this victory. He has the advantage over darkness, sin, and the Law, and now He wants to give us this advantage. As the head of the church and our ultimate servant-provider, Jesus is the source of all our growth. He did not come to dominate us, but to provide for us by serving us.

Your Sanctification Has Moved Inside You

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

When we are born again, not only are we changed, but we also exchange everything we are not for everything that Jesus is. He is wisdom, righteousness, redemption, and holiness; and we become these things when we are in Christ and He is in us. We cannot live a Christian life through our own efforts; we can only do this in Jesus. Each of us must decide to let Him live through us by submitting and turning ourselves over to Him, and acknowledging that we are not successful in our own ability. The day we get saved, our sanctification moves inside of us.  Our sanctification is a Person, and His name is Jesus.

Biblical Equality

By Taffi Dollar

Summary

Biblical equality means that Believers stand on equal ground before Christ.  In the book of Genesis, God created Eve as an ezer to rescue Adam. The contemporary relationship between men and women should be along the same lines, specifically, to complement and benefit each other. Biblical equality does not entitle a Believer to any particular ministry based on gender. Instead, in the body of Christ, we all have an opportunity to operate in the authority and the gifting God places on our lives. In some areas of the world, strict caste systems are in place to separate and limit people, but the Word of God bypasses that and ministers to everyone in all kinds of circumstances. The Holy Spirit intends for everyone to operate in their gifts, regardless of hierarchy.

Under Grace, But What About Sin?

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Many people constantly struggle with the “I am a Christian, but what about sin?” issue. If we have been born again, we are free from our old, sinful nature; but to be free from sin actions, we must renew our minds and learn to think differently.  We need to remember that grace has made available everything we will ever need in life, and we receive all of it by faith. This includes the knowledge that we are the righteousness of God, regardless of what we do or what happens around us. Jesus Christ died for us while we were still sinners, so that His grace would be available to save us from our sins. The righteousness He has for us allows us to live victoriously.  This gift is offered to us by God’s favor, and all we need to do to receive it is accept it.

Equal to Serve

By Taffi Dollar

Summary

When we look at godly relationships between men and women, it is with an eye toward operating in biblical equality. This equality does not just apply to marriage, but to all aspects of life, including the ministry. Service to God is an open opportunity for everyone, regardless of gender or marital status. It is wrong to allow worldly traditions to contradict the Word of God in this area and set up parameters on who is qualified to preach. This affects the body of Christ, our ability to connect with each other through personal relationships, and even our ability to reach the next generation. God can, and does, use women as well as men to fulfill His plan as He sees fit. Whether male or female, we must all yield ourselves to Him and put aside our own selfish interests.

Sanctification

By Creflo Dollar

Summary 

The Bible tells us that those who are in Christ are new creatures, that old things have passed away and all things have become new. Something supernatural happens to us when we are in Christ, and the concept of this vital union with God is so important that the New Testament has more than three hundred references to it.  Being born again gives us a new identity in Christ, but it is imperative to understand that when we are saved and make Jesus the Lord of our lives, the changes that occur do not take place in the physical realm. Our bodies and our souls are not affected, but rather our spirits. In the same way that God’s Spirit gave life to Adam after God created man, the spirit is the part of us that gives life.  Being born again molds God’s Spirit with ours, and His Spirit gives us a radically new and different life. As Christians, we should then focus on bringing our minds into agreement with what has already taken place in our spirits.
