The Easy Way or The Hard Way

Posted on October 22, 2019 by Erin Culleny in Victory Call

How long, O naive ones, will you love being simple minded? Turn to my reproof, Behold, I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you. – Proverbs 1:22-23 A wise person once said, “There are three ways to learn – through instruction, by example, or more painfully, through experience.” Solomon, […]

No Place Like Home

Posted on October 21, 2019 by Erin Culleny in Victory Call

…for then we will be at home with the Lord. 2 Corinthians 5:8b (NLT) It was a rainy night, cold and dark, and we needed to head out right after a long day at work… to attend to our many errands we had scheduled for that night. The rain and the darkness added to the […]

Prove it

Posted on October 18, 2019 by Erin Culleny in Victory Call

But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.

First Glance

Posted on October 17, 2019 by Erin Culleny in Victory Call

I did not know until recently that the book of James was so controversial. “The letter of James has strong claims to be both the most celebrated and most criticized of all New Testament books.

Posted on October 16, 2019 by Erin Culleny in Victory Call

For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything, but only faith working through love. Galatians 5:6 In yesterday’s Victory Call, in view of Galatians 5:6, we considered that nothing other than Christ counts for our salvation.

A Simple Truth

Posted on October 15, 2019 by Erin Culleny in Victory Call

Joy?

Posted on October 14, 2019 by Erin Culleny in Victory Call

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. James 1:2-3 Count is all joy?  Who considers suffering joy?  I have heard this question posed to me over the years. How do I count this trial all joy?  It is difficult to see trials as […]

How to Build a Stronghold

Posted on October 11, 2019 by Erin Culleny in Victory Call

For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. 2 Corinthians 10:4 The word ‘stronghold’ in this verse is a fortress used metaphorically. But it also indicates, at least in this verse, that some strongholds are harmful and need destroyed and warfare is involved. Stronghold: a fortified place; a place […]

In Weakness, Fear and Trembling

Posted on October 10, 2019 by Erin Culleny in Victory Call

For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. And I was with you in weakness and in fear and much trembling, and my speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in […]

Deeper not Backwards

Posted on October 9, 2019 by Erin Culleny in Victory Call

And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6 I am in the final stage of training for my Recovery Coach certification.  Last week while speaking to my supervisor he made a comment about the common human experience of being discouraged by slow […]
