I‘ve been a pastor for the last 25 years, and of all the messages I’ve given over the years, there’s one topic that I keep coming back to, and it’s why I’ve launched Train Yourself Ministry.
I think one thing that needs to be shored up in the faith-walk of many a follower of Christ is a commitment to growing in personal and spiritual discipline. I say that because as I look around the church I see way too many believers whose Bibles are gathering dust, who give in too easily to things like porn, who can’t name one friend of another skin color, and the moment culture comes and bullies them about something, they cave in.
TYM zeroes in on the sanctification side of faith. Though all is of grace, grace demands a response, or it can be received in vain (2 Cor.6:1). Though faith alone saves us, real faith produces works, or it is dead (Eph.2:8-10, James 2:26).
