To deal effectively with a problem, you must get to the root of the problem, and not just address the symptoms of the problem. In our lives, behavior is the symptom, and “the flesh” is the root.

To deal effectively with a problem, you must get to the root of the problem, and not just address the symptoms of the problem. In our lives, behavior is the symptom and “the flesh” is the root.

Change doesn’t come by our own efforts to manipulate our behavior. It doesn’t happen when we try a little harder to control ourselves. Legalism makes the situation worse by covering up the cause.

Change in our lives occurs when we let go of legalism and allow ourselves to be transformed by experiencing God’s love. The cure is to spend time being loved by God, to let him give us our worth, rather than letting the world tell us what makes us lovable. We need to experience God’s love as vividly as we experience the lies of the flesh in everyday life.

"We have been podrishioners for several months. Our daughter, son-in-law and grandkids moved back to California after living in MN for 10 years. They attended Woodland Hills for about a year before they moved. Now we all go to the beach together on Thursdays, come home and have dinner together, then we watch last Sunday’s sermon together. It is a special day for our family."

– Dale and Patricia, from California
