Headship

By Taffi Dollar

Summary

As Believers who all stand on equal ground, we cannot allow inferiority or negativity to creep into our thinking. We must not see ourselves as powerless, but instead clothed with the Spirit of might because of our union with God. The biblical concept of headship is something many do not understand, and countless marriages are affected by this lack of knowledge. God is no respecter of persons, and He shows grace equally to both men and women. Many husbands and wives do not understand the biblical concept of submitting one to another, and they mistakenly assume that it is only the woman’s responsibility to submit. The dictionary’s definition of “head” is someone who is a chief, a leader, or a boss, but these descriptions differ from the biblical definition of this word. When we study the Bible to renew our minds in this area, we learn that the head of the church is Christ, and He is the One Who connects us, nourishes us, and causes us to grow and reach our true potential in Him.

The Gift

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

There are traditional reasons to celebrate Christmas, and then there are the real reasons. There is nothing wrong with the trees, lights, gifts, and family traditions, but, if we are not careful, we can find ourselves not feeling “the Christmas spirit.” We who have been born again can sense this Spirit every day of our lives, because He lives inside us. We celebrate Christmas because, until Jesus came, we were all in bondage and destined for hell. The Law of Moses was given because of sin, but man could not keep it and was headed for eternal death. When God sent His Son in fleshly form to set us free, He presented to us the greatest gift of all.

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.
