The Bible is full of truth about the importance of controlling our minds. In this sermon, Dr. Stanley shares Biblical truth found in Colossians 3 about how our tendencies to think as unbelievers change when we become believers. Christ gives us renewed thoughts and the Bible to guide us towards thinking like Christ—godly and positive thoughts.

    I grew up as a Muslim but thank God after years of struggling, he opened my eyes and I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior, was baptized in his name and i can't begin to explain the peace i felt. I really love listening to Dr Charles Stanley and his preaching of the true word of God almighty. Thank you Lord Jesus for your grace and Love!

    Love is of God ;lust is from the world
    Love can wait ; lust must have it now
    Love is selfless; lust is selfish
    Love is giving ;lust is taking
    Love develops ; lust destroys
    Love is peaceful ; lust is full of anxiety
    💯💯💯👍👍👍

    EVERY Christian should listen to this message at least once a week, their whole life long. 99% of the enemies attack, is in our thoughts. Thank you Mr. Stanley for listening to God, and sharing faithfully. Praise be to Jesus.

    :: I was saved at 13, and now at 34 have strayed so far. Tonight I hit my breaking point and did a YouTube search “pastor preaching” and this was the first result. I about fell out of my chair bc it was EXACTLY the sermon I needed and directly addressed what I have been struggling with. I just couldn’t stop thanking Him for answering me immediately bc he knew my need for him. I am at such peace now. Even my five year old daughter prayed FOR me aloud TWICE when it was over for the very first time.

  • Someone needs to hear this Oh Lord! God almighty! I magnify your name! Yaweh I give you all the glory for my life! Forgive my sins and my un confessed sins Lord! Lord I want more of you and less of me! I thank you for your protection! I am truly blessed and highly favored I sit in heavenly places and I am the son of a mighty King!!! I love you Jesus! This is such a great song. I feel so much of the holyspirit in me. God has been so good and I have never had to hold my knowledge back as I always want to impact people and make them rich as I am. I have had lots of my fellow brother and sisters who reach out to me via email and I don’t heststate to help. If you are willing to do the lords work that is a good thing. I have some of my clients who own orphanage homes and charity organisation. I am so delight that there are good people in the world who want to use money for Gods work. Remain blessed everyone. No matter what you go through God loves you.
  • 0h L0rd! God almighty! I magnify your name! Yaweh I give you all the glory for my life! Forgive my sins and my un confessed sins Lord! Lord I want more of you and less of me! I thank you for your protection! I am truly blessed and highly favored I sit in heavenly places and I am the daughter of a mighty King!!! I love you Jesus! Lord I pray for those who don't know you in a intimate way that they will humble themselves and come to know you on bending knee asking for their forgiveness! Father I bind the spirit of pride! I cut it off at the head and send it back to the pit of he'll in which it has come from! I release love, kindness, patience, humility in the name of Jesus! I followed my heart and I am glad I did. I lost my wife 2 years ago due to the pandemic and I was about giving up, knowing God has brought me this far was for a purpose and I kept on looking on to him. My destiny helper was sent to me the year my wife died. The moment I was about giving up, I was introduced to a business by a man I met in a seminar I went to in Florida. This was not my first time hearing of such business but I took the risk Investing $1,000 USD and it was worth it. [email protected],C0M 4weeks later I kept on getting earnings and I started using the money for Gods work. I am very popular in Maryland. Doing Gods work always give me joy. There is peace and joy in my mind . I am here to motivate you and tell you never to give up even though the situation seems so though. God has promised his children and he will surely do what he has promised his children. My mail is in my about or bio if you wish to write me. I can tell you what this business is all about or you van reach him directly ,

    Thank you Doctor. I greatly sinned by having an affair as a married woman. Everyday I think about what I did, eventhough I may have apologized to everyone involved, I couldn't stop thinking about it. I suffered from depression and loneliness and even self-pity. Your message has helped me heal abit and to know that I am loved by a Great God. Thank you so much for the message.

    God healed me from being molested as a child and helped me love myself and others turned my mind away from suicide,porn sex outside of marriage. I was in the fire for over 35 years but when I came out I was a new person I may have been drowning but when I opened my eyes I saw Jesus and his hand was stretched out towards me and I grabbed it he pulled me up into his arms and I was saved
  • Emma Rankin
