Tired of doing the wrong thing?

June 20, 2024

Have good intentions, but still end up giving into bad habits or sin? You aren’t alone. Listen to this story from Angola and be encouraged by the power of God’s Word and His Spirit that can help:

“Your program is changing many things here in our community. Last week a member of the body of elders in our congregation came to us confessing that he used witchcraft to do his work in the church. He said listening to your teaching challenged him to give up that practice, so he obeyed and brought everything to the cross. He said at first it was hard, but the more he prayed and gave God the glory the easier it became. That was a great blessing in the congregation and many other people did the same and God was glorified.”

You don’t have to do it on your own. In fact, if you study God’s Word with us regularly, you know you can’t. So, what’s the secret? In our study of 1 Thessalonians 4 this week, we learned only when we yield to the Holy Spirit can we live a life that pleases God.

Today pray more people in Angola hear God’s Word, choose to follow Jesus, and allow His Spirit to do for them what they can’t do for themselves.

Want to learn more about how God’s Spirit can work in and through your life? Download our free 1 Thessalonians Bible Companion  and Dr. McGee’s digital booklet "Living the Christian Life God’s Way" (from Romans 8). And join us here tomorrow for more great stories of God’s goodness.
