It’s God’s will that you suffer . . . for righteousness’ sake. Though every Christian would affirm that statement, people interpret it in a number of different ways. For some, it’s doing ministry in an inner-city homeless shelter. For others, it’s absorbing whatever comments your critics make about your ministry methodology—e.g., the mega-church or multi-site pastor who gets called out for franchising his brand. Still others completely ignore the issue of righteousness and godliness. For them, suffering is doing something radical, something crazy, unpopular, even shocking. Is that what God wants? Crazy suffering? Or should we interpret suffering from a more biblical paradigm? Here’s John MacArthur to answer that question . . .

Submitting to authority is one of the single most effective ways you can make the gospel attractive. And even though submission is clearly the will of God, too many Christians seem to think it’s optional. That’s a reproach to the gospel, the church, and the Lord Himself. It’s God’s will that we lead peaceful, quiet lives, submit to the laws of the land, and be a blessing to church leadership. We are to submit. That is God’s will. Here’s John MacArthur to explain…

In our last post, John narrowed the scope of his comments to sanctification in the sexual arena. The most immediate reason for his focus is because that’s the subject of the text he was preaching, 1 Thessalonians 4:3-8…and for good reason.

In terms of its depravity, America is beginning to look like ancient Rome as it plunges into new depths of sexual immorality. Fornication, adultery, homosexuality, pornography, even pedophilia and other perversions, pervade the United States. And though we live in a nation obsessed with sex, we’re called to live sanctified lives of sexual purity. That is God’s will, clearly revealed. Here’s John to talk more about it…

Twenty-five years ago Neil Postman observed that television had become an American “necessity” and lamented its effects on society. He correctly described the culture of the 1980s as one that was amusing itself to death. If he were alive today, Postman would be astonished at how quickly Twitter, Facebook, and other forms of social media have gripped our society. His earlier criticisms raise an interesting question about these current trends: If TV put our culture in the casket, has social media nailed the coffin shut?

Do you know what controls you? In other words, what fills, and further what dominates your thinking? For some, it’s a consuming relationship or addictive form of entertainment like video games or Facebook. For others, maybe it’s health, education, or even a career. Join John MacArthur in Ephesians 5, and find out how what controls you is essential in following God’s will.

Tragically, many people groping around in the dark for God’s will miss the vital first step and never recover. In fact, darkness is a good analogy for their condition. Jesus said men love darkness rather than light, and that’s exactly where they remain when they refuse His offer of salvation—in darkness.

So, if you’re confused, frustrated and, well, in the dark when it comes to God’s will, take a look at John MacArthur’s sermon today. He’ll shed some light on the issue . . .

How do I find God’s Will? It’s a question you’ve probably heard—and asked—many times. The subject comes up frequently in our discussions. As Christians, we want to know and follow God’s will in every sphere of our lives. Whether it’s enrolling in college, pursuing a relationship, choosing a career, or purchasing a home, we often fear making the wrong choices—and missing out on God’s best. But God’s will isn’t hard to find; in fact, it’s never been lost. John MacArthur explains . . .
