Defining Lies

“For as he thinks in his heart, so is he” Proverbs 23:7.

Recorded live on KWXC 88.9 Christian Talk Radio – Grove, OK 

The challenge that comes from conversation with Janie and Sharon is to define the lies that you have believed about yourself, your relationships, and the world in which you live. A lie believed as truth will affect your life as if it were true – even though it is a lie. This is the key principle that is defined with the lies many have believed, such as; “money provides security and happiness”, “I must be married to be happy”, “my worth is based on what others think of me”, “the more I do for God, the more He will love and bless me”, and the list goes on. There are many lies that cross over into other lies; we believe one and all its buddies climb on board. It’s time to break the cycle of living in lies and start living in the truth of who you really are in Christ. Follow along on the teaching handout – Defining Lies – and have scripture references for extra study.

Choosing Your Wardrobe

“For you are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ” Galatians 3:26-27.

Sharon and Janie challenge you to know and believe who you really are in Christ. They discuss the “put on” and “put off” of characteristics that reflect our true identity. Many of us have our identity wrapped up in what others think of us, say about us, or how others treat us. We can also have our identity wrapped up in our performances, deeds, and status (or lack of). Lots of people have their identity wrapped up in their job title, what they own, and how much money they have (or lack of). Our physical clothing shares with others about our career, hobbies, activities, and lifestyles; such as, business woman, athlete, hunter, cowgirl, etc. In this same way, our characteristics share with others who we believe that we are. If we do not know who we are in Christ, then when we are choosing our wardrobe, we are less likely to “put on” some of the characteristics that reflect that true identity. “Putting on” and “putting off” are activities that take place in the inner-man through the prompting and guidance of the Holy Spirit. Identifying the characteristics that need to be “put off” and replacing them with the characteristics that need to be “put on” can only be done through the power of the Holy Spirit. Choosing our wardrobe to reflect who we really are in Christ will fulfill our lives and our Christian walk. Get the list of Put off…Put on in the teaching handouts.

Who Am I?

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” 2 Corinthians 5:17

Sharon and Janie dissect the general consensus that most people suffer from low self-esteem and what that means for the Christian. This is seen in the lives of people through the decisions being made that are destructive to their bodies, lifestyle, and families. The Christian who suffers from low self-esteem has either not understood, been taught, or grasped who they are in Christ. The question, “Who Am I” plagues many people today. Genealogy and ancestry companies are popping up everywhere because we have this question. People are going to great lengths to find out who they are; even getting blood work and DNA testing; however, knowing genealogies can never fill the void, only Christ can do that. The list “In Christ I Am” is available to download.

Grasping Grace

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me” Galatians 2:20.

Grace is vast, so grasping it can be difficult, but it is the first step to understanding who we are in Christ as a new creation. Sharon Hoskins and Janie Ratzlaff expand upon the idea that many Christians do not know who they are in Christ so they suffer from low self-esteem and self-worth. This is concerning in that knowing who we are in Christ will remove “self” to see Him more clearly.

How Is Your Operating System

“But as He which has called you is holy, so be you holy in all mannner of conversation; because it is written, Be you holy; for I am holy” 1 Peter 1:15-16.

Janie shares about ways that we can check how well we are operating. It is important to heed to the detailed commands that will improve the way we operate as Christians. She give us thoughts on how to evaluate our life and emotions. When God gives us a command, He gives us the ability to achieve that command. Where are we finding our substanance for our Christian walk? Janie asks us to evaluate where we are getting our spiritual food. Are we seeking the best for our Christian walk or just taking the easy processed stuff. It is important that we be content wherever we find ourselves.
