How To Win the War Within You
June 10, 2013
For I delight in the law of God, in my inner being, but I see in my members another law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members. Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin.
I’m a huge baseball fan. And of course, one of the all-time greats of the sport is Babe Ruth. He had very humble beginnings… abandoned by his parents when he was seven and raised in an orphanage. But it was discovered early on that little George Herman Ruth had an incredible ability to hit a ball with a bat.
Well, Ruth became a baseball player, but his off-the-field (and sometimes on-the-field) troubles limited his career. He could hit the baseball like no other and he aspired to become a manager of a team. But he was never given the manager’s position because of his behavior.
Throughout his life, in spite of his outward success, Babe Ruth was fighting a huge battle on the inside… a war within his own spirit. And tragically, I don’t know if he ever won the war within.
Each of us faces a battle within. And while it may not be as severe as The Babe’s, we fight nonetheless. But for those of us who are in Christ, we can win that war over the enemy in our lives, over our flesh, and over the world. Submit to the Spirit in your life, not the flesh, and you’ll find victory over the war within.
FIND VICTORY OVER THE WAR WITHIN YOU BY SUBMITTING TO THE SPIRIT OF GOD IN YOUR LIFE!

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013
While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.
That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.
This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”
The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.
