Why do some believers not ask for healing?
Perhaps they do not believe in healing. Healing can be a difficult topic to comprehend. Healing ministries are often marked by fraudsters. They feel like real faith is revealed best in suffering. They may have the mindset that if God doesn’t heal, He will look bad. Why bother?
What does the Bible tell us about healing?
The Bible tells us that Jesus heals!God identifies Himself as Healer.God invites us to pursue healing. Healing is provided in Christ’s atonement. Not everyone is healed right away.
What does this mean for us and healing?
Healing is never formulaic. Healing is found by looking to the Healer. Ask Him to give you Himself – His Healing presence.

Why is spiritism attractive?
There are many reasons people are drawn to spiritism. People are drawn to mystery. Don’t know where else to go. They feel like God has left them down before, or they feel they have left God down. They are wanting something Christians forgot. They have a desire to be different. They need control. Evil spirits are real.
Even with all the things that draw people to spiritism, why would you turn anywhere but to Christ?
The God of the Bible is personal. He is our redeemer, taking our bad and replacing it with good. He is protective.He is all powerful and above all powers. He is the Savior who rescues us.
How do you look to God? You ask Him for wisdom. You trust Him to do as you asked. You walk in faith.

Pastor Steve begins a new sermon series using the analogy of five dangerous side roads we can take on our Christian walk.
The dangerous side roads are the Entitlement Interstate, Escapism Extension, Intrigue Intersection, Futility Roundabout and Control Corner.
The Entitlement Interstate is dangerous because it distracts you from caring about others, blinds you to personal responsibility, and makes you miserable.
So how do you avoid the danger of the Entitlement Interstate? The answers can be found in Philippians 2!
You can live a life of thanks for what you have received. You can value others highly. You can have the mindset of Christ. You can keep your eyes on the prize. You can recognize the holiness of the gift of salvation you have received.
