For marriages to win, two people have to be willing to put in the work and fight for the right things. But so often, arguments between a husband and wife aren’t fair, and they end up causing serious damage. How can marriages emerge victorious from the inevitable arguments they will face? In this message, Pastor Ed and Lisa Young reveal the commandments of a fair fight. Because to get the most out of marriage, we have to be willing to fight, and fight fair.
Success in anything requires more than just desire. It takes a willingness to work. It’s true in the business world, the sports world, and even the relational world. But when we are willing to do the work, we will experience some amazing results. In this message, Pastor Ed and Lisa Young unpack the reality of God’s design for relationships and marriage. They help us discover the keys to success, what we need to work on, and how we can all become relational winners!
The story of the children of Israel’s journey from Egypt to Canaan is a well-known and often-repeated story. But in this unique message, Pastor Ed Young lifts the story from the pages of the Bible and communicates it in a way that can connect with everyone – young and old. By using some of the most popular candy bars and treats, Pastor Young helps us all connect with the trek to Canaan-dy Land, and helps us discover the sweet surprises God has in store for us on our own journey when we obey Him!
Candy Land is an enchanting place. It’s something children dream of, because it is filled with all they could ever imagine. But it isn’t just something reserved for imaginations. In a very real way, we’re all on a quest for candy – the kind of candy God has in store for us. In this message, Pastor Ed Young takes us back to the first game of Candy Land with the children of Israel. When we come to understand how they played the game, what they did right and what they did wrong, we can discover just how God wants us to pursue our own quest for candy!
Our world loves to talk about compromise. But when it comes to standing for our convictions, compromise is the furthest thing from God’s plan. Because when we stand for what we believe, the blessings are unbelievable!
In this message, Pastor Ed Young continues his look at the Old Testament prophet Daniel. By studying Daniel’s refusal to compromise what he believed, we discover the focus isn’t about fighting against culture. Rather, it’s about being resolved to focus first and foremost on God. When we do that, we will experience the blessings of God no matter what happens in the world around us.
The prophet Daniel was one of the most self-aware characters we encounter in the Old Testament. Because of that, he had opportunity after opportunity to make a lasting impact in the world. But things weren’t always easy for him. Sometimes, he faced challenges that forced him to make difficult decisions. In this message, Ed Young unpacks one of the most well-known biblical accounts, Daniel and the lions’ den. Through an in-depth look at the decisions Daniel had to make in the midst of that time, we discover just what it takes to make the right decisions today and experience the kind of impact God wants us all to have.
Throughout the Bible, we encounter characters who serve as models for us today. Some of those characters teach us what to do; others remind us what not to do. Belshazzar, the king of Babylon, was one character no one wants to replicate in today’s world, because the mistake he made cost him everything. In this message by Pastor Ed Young, we look at this rebellious ancient ruler in Daniel 5 and discover just what it takes for us to read, understand, and avoid the writing on the wall.
We all want to know, deep down, who we truly are. Yet so many people have a misconception of their true identity, because they look to the wrong source of that identity. In other words, we are self-unaware. But through this message by Pastor Ed Young, we realize that the true source of our identity is the One who made us. And when we tap into God’s power of self-awareness, we discover the power and potential we were truly meant to have.
The Word of God is illustrated by many things, including a light, a sword, or a hammer. In this message, though, Pastor Ed Young unpacks us one of the most powerful and potent of all illustrations. He shows us Jesus’ teaching about how the Word of God is seed. And while everyone who hears the Word may hear the same words being spoken, not everyone responds the same way. It all comes down to the kind of soil our heart is.
For our hearts to function properly, they need to be whole and complete. This is not only true physically, it is true spiritually. When a heart is broken, life ceases to exist. This, too, is not only true physically, it is true spiritually. In this message, Pastor Ed Young unpacks the powerful truth that we all have a broken and segmented heart. But it is not something we can fix on our own; God is the only One who can repair it. And when we come to understand His plan for our lives and accept the work He has done to repair our broken hearts, we discover the amazing reality that we never have to live again with a broken heart. We can live whole-hearted!
Known by many names, the Bible is the most popular book in the history of the world. From the time it was first penned, its message has been read and rejected, protected and persecuted, championed and chastised. But in all the time that the Bible has existed, it has never changed or wavered from its claim as the very Word of God. But is this ancient book still relevant? In this message, Pastor Ed Young opens Scripture to reveal what it says, who it reveals, and what its powerful and providential truth means for each of us today.
The heart is one of the most complex and vital organs in the human body. So goes our heart, so goes our health. But it’s not only crucial to our physical survival. The health of our spiritual heart is vital for our eternity. But too often, we don’t understand the true condition of our heart. In this message, Pastor Ed Young unpacks a powerful section of Scripture and challenges us all to let God, the ultimate physician, examine our hearts. Because when do, we experience the path to true spiritual health.
