190: A Worthy Battle


In this Memorial Day episode, we thank all those have fought and are fighting for our country and then move to celebrate those who are fighting a worthy battle for sexual purity in their lives. Frank shares from Ephesians 6:10-18 and talks about the necessity of fighting from God’s protection and not our own. Enjoy the podcast!

Show Notes:

Ephesians 6:10-18 TPT:

“Now my beloved ones, I have saved these most important truths for last: Be supernaturally infused with strength through your life-union with the Lord Jesus. Stand victorious with the force of his explosive power flowing in and through you. Put on God’s complete set of armor provided for us, so that you will be protected as you fight against the evil strategies of the accuser! Your hand-to-hand combat is not with human beings, but with the highest principalities and authorities operating in rebellion under the heavenly realms. For they are a powerful class of demon-gods and evil spirits that hold this dark world in bondage. Because of this, you must wear all the armor that God provides so you’re protected as you confront the slanderer, for you are destined for all things and will rise victorious. Put on truth as a belt to strengthen you to stand in triumph. Put on holiness as the protective armor that covers your heart. Stand on your feet alert, then you’ll always be ready to share the blessings of peace. In every battle, take faith as your wrap-around shield, for it is able to extinguish the blazing arrows coming at you from the Evil One! Embrace the power of salvation’s full deliverance, like a helmet to protect your thoughts from lies. And take the mighty razor-sharp Spirit-sword of the spoken Word of God. Pray passionately in the Spirit, as you constantly intercede with every form of prayer at all times. Pray the blessings of God upon all his believers.”

Character Means Everything

This is a massive statement. My character is everything. My integrity means infinitely more than I can ever imagine. Even the simple things…like our thoughts, our motivations, our desires – the things we would consider to be so small are so monumental according to our Father in Heaven. It all matters. I’m more convinced of this today as a husband and father of two than I ever have been. I’m thankful for the Holy Spirit who convicts when necessary and comforts constantly. I’m thankful for the Son, Jesus, who is an ever present reminder that the right choice can be made no matter what, and I’m ultimately thankful for a Father who never stopped chasing His children, even when they were at their worst.

“Because of my integrity you uphold me and set me in your presence forever.” Psalm‬ ‭41:12‬ ‭NIV

God Honors Honesty


Openness. Transparency. Honesty. These are words and characteristics that just aren’t cherished the way they used to be in our society. Why? I think the reason is rather simple: They take effort. They take work. They take time. There’s a process that take place in all of these words that bears fruit over time. And honesty walks in a direction towards the light, not the darkness. Only when we hide and avoid the truth do we really do more harm to ourselves than simply being honest. In the context of marriage and family, being honest means that I’m more in love with the reality that nothing in my life is off limits to anyone I’m close to. I’ve got NOTHING to hide.
