Leading from values so others will walk passionately with God to grow and bear fruit.
Our society has tried to cleanse itself from guilt by removing the Ten Commandments from our public schools, building and courts so that no one will be reminded of breaking them. Those who sin try to rationalize all kinds of behavior by blaming it on their background, circumstances, a parent or a spouse. Furthermore, society says, "It's not your fault."
Yet psychiatrists' couches are filled up with so many guilt-ridden people. Why? Because we are all born in bondage to sin and guilt, and only God can break those bonds. Only He can break the chains of bad habits and addictions.
Nick Smith, a 17-year-old who participated in a "Right From Wrong" campaign understood this principle. By attending the meetings, he prepared himself ahead of time to make godly decisions. While he was at an out-of-town track meet, he discovered several teammates glued to a less-than-wholesome movie. He had two choices: to follow the biblical guidelines he had learned or to go along with his friends.
Not only did Nick resist the temptation, he also influenced another young man to do the same. Together, they both walked away. If you turn your temptations over to God and trust in His power, He will help you step out of that pile of chains.
Paul writes in Romans 6:22, "Now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves to God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life." In Jesus we can live freely and joyfully.

Look at the beauty and intricacies in your corner of the Earth; marvel at the genius of the design. How comforting it is to know that the God of creation is concerned with my well-being.
Some might give their lives for good people, but God sent His Son to die for sinners, including the ones who put that Son on the cross. No higher demonstration of love is possible.
