Understanding Grace-Based Relationships

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

The key relationships that matter most are the vertical connections between us and God, and the horizontal connections between us and other people. Making Jesus the foundation of every relationship enables us to be friends with God and with each other. Relationships developed on natural criteria instead of on God will crumble; we need supernatural help in this area. Prioritizing correctly and keeping God first in our lives enables Him to show us favor in all our relationships.

Understanding Modern Day Idolatry (Part 3)

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Many things in the world aren’t necessarily bad until we idolize them. Most people no longer bow down to carved wooden statues, but are unknowingly worshipping at the altar of the god of self. Idolatry involves a tremendous amount of pride; practicing humility is the only way to subdue it.

Faith and the Gospel (Part 2)

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

If we want to get anything good out of life, we must know where to look. We could never earn our own deliverance, preservation, healing, success, or prosperity on our own; these things are only available by God’s grace. When we believe in Jesus Christ and depend on Him, this unmerited, undeserved favor from God gives us real power to receive from Him. We will always have adversity to overcome in some form or fashion; although the world struggles unsuccessfully with it, born-again believers have the ability to succeed and get results despite the situation. Everything we need is available to us in the spirit realm; our faith is all we need to move those things to the physical realm where we can access them. A strong faith depends solely on the Gospel of Grace. Genuine belief that everything we need has already been done for us and is waiting for us to receive it by faith brings the manifestations we are hoping for.

Understanding Modern Day Idolatry

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

An idol is anything or anyone that we give higher priority to than God. In these end times, everywhere we look we see people who have set up idols for themselves. God gives us life; therefore, it is always dangerous to replace Him and worship something or someone else. We stay safe when we make sure to put Him first.

Faith and the Gospel

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

There is a definite connection between what we believe and what the gospel says. When life throws challenges at us and worldly systems fail, faith in God’s Word and knowing how to rightly divide it gives us victory over adversity. The kind of genuine trust we need goes beyond religion and gives us a way to be practical in applying the Word to everyday situations. Using precision in our application of the Gospel of Grace—which is also the gospel of Jesus Christ—gives us an ability to succeed on every level that the world doesn’t have. Our faith is a powerful tool; however, for it to be effective we must use our words to put it to work. We do that by declaring the promises God made that apply to our specific situation. God already has a provision waiting for us that will address everything that happens to us; the finished works of Jesus have made available to us all the answers and solutions we will ever need.
