Bonus: “The Way of Escape” with John Van Gelderen

May 30, 2022

In this riveting episode, John Van Gelderen and Gabe uncover some of Satan’s tactics in bringing temptation into our lives. To counter these attacks, they share a life changing truth God has given to overcome! You will be encouraged as you see God’s provision in Christ as “THE way of escape.”

Temptation comes in different forms – there is temptation caused by the physical realm and temptation caused by the spiritual realm. God has made a way for us to escape – and it comes as we understand our position in Christ! What does it mean that Christ is in us? And what does it mean that we are in Christ? This message is perhaps one of the most practical you will ever hear on how to “appropriate” our position in Christ!
