The Great Exchange

By Taffi Dollar

Summary

Jesus came to give us resurrected lives; we now have an opportunity to walk in the redemption He provided for us. Because of what He did, we can take our lives to another level and supernaturally rise to new abilities. Jesus put right everything that had been wrong since Adam and Eve’s sin; He revoked the curses that held power over the people and replaced them with blessings. We escape our old lives and receive new ones when we get born again. Because of this new life He gave us, we must avoid holding on to thoughts from our pasts and instead embrace our new mindsets. Now that we have received salvation, there is no reason to go back to living like we lived before we were saved. We are free to undergo a holy transformation so that we can carry out our redemption.

Ten Steps to Change

By Taffi Dollar

Summary

The ability to adapt to change makes us flexible, and as Christians we should be constantly willing to change. The trait of being able to embrace change says much about our character. Another person’s willingness to make adjustments to what they believe is an important factor to consider in relationships. The beautiful thing about change is that it keeps us from getting stuck in something and allows us to move forward when necessary. Even when we cannot change ourselves, we are not stranded; keeping our hearts open to the Holy Spirit allows the Word of God to deeply transform us in ways we never could manage on our own. This transformation is so thorough that it becomes readily visible to others, making them want to change because of what they see in us. This frees us from having to do something to bring about change and allows us to simply be the change.

The Spirit of Grace

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Most churches stay busy giving people rules and regulations to follow, but when we get saved, it is important to fall in love with Jesus. Many of the issues with which we struggle are the same ones He has already dealt with. We struggle because we focus too much on all the religious “do’s” and “don’ts” instead of focusing on Jesus. It is impossible to live Christian lives on our own; the Holy Spirit has a huge part in bringing us a life of grace. We cannot live sinless lives through self-discipline, and we are deluded if we think otherwise. The church is not a collection of perfect people, but rather a place where we admit we need Jesus. When we want to change for the better but cannot do so by ourselves, the Spirit of grace changes us from the inside out.

Help, I’m Afraid to Give! (Part 4) NY

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Fear limits how much God can bless us, and therefore, as Christians, we must take care not to limit Him. Fear can rear its ugly head in any area of our lives, especially in financial matters. Jesus had much to say about money, and He taught that wealth is the least important thing in the kingdom of God. It is simply a tool that can be used for good or evil. How we manage money and whether we are afraid to give depends on whether we are under the influence of the spirit of mammon or the Spirit of God. God promises He will never let us down or abandon us, but this is a promise that mammon cannot keep. In light of this, we must decide for ourselves whether we will trust in mammon or in God.

Help, I’m Afraid to Give! (Part 5) ATL

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Fear in any area of our lives should not be tolerated. We must deal with it whenever and wherever we find it; it should not be allowed to govern our lives. Just like faith allows God to operate in our lives, fear allows the devil to enter in. Fear wants to produce unbelief, and the devil's goal is to bring us to a point where we are afraid to believe God’s promises to us. This is especially devastating when it comes to financial giving to support the church. We make a mistake when we trust God in all other areas of our lives, but stop short when it comes to money because we are too uncomfortable to give. Therefore, we must proactively guard against Satan’s attacks and develop a “No fear here” mindset.

God of the Surprise

By Taffi Dollar

Summary

God wants to be Lord over every area of our lives and He wants to make His presence known in amazing, astonishing ways. In order to do this, He is not above springing surprises on us when we least expect them. He did this with Mary when the angel announced she was to give birth to Jesus, and this completely changed her life. Likewise, when God reveals something surprising to us, our lives are also changed. He wants us to live in constant expectation and anticipation, and to be ready for miracles. This is the same God who redeemed us and bought us back from the bondage that resulted from Adam and Eve’s sin. Jesus paid the price to move us from sickness, poverty, and everything evil into health, prosperity at every level, and all that is abundantly good.
