Please contact us if you have questions or comments or want encouragement.

Some people live with principles, yet if those principles are not godly, there is no assurance that they will deliver you from the evil in this world. Charles Stanley has some excellent Life Principles that I encourage you to implement daily! If we do not follow the principles of living right in our life, we would not have a rudder to be steered, which would most likely turn into a situation where whatever feels good a person would be inclined to do.

The type of knee-jerk style of living will not get you where you want to be but, instead, get you into situations that would be detrimental and ultimately sinful. God’s word is not meant to be a killjoy, but rather God knows our sinful nature and tendency to sin, so He gave us the Good Book (The Bible to help us, not to harm us). ~ Bill Greguska

2 Timothy 2:5  Similarly, anyone who competes as an athlete does not receive the victor’s crown except by competing according to the rules.




Pastor Charles Stanley Teaches About Life Principles!

Living A Good Life By Living With Godly Principles

I have not always lived my life with these life principles by Pastor Charles Stanley. When I became a Christian in 1986, I started applying these principles to my life. After doing so, I noticed that my problems were put into perspective, and they began to get dealt with. I am not saying that accepting Jesus in your life or mine erases all my problems, but what I can tell you is that those same problems will be able to take care of by God, for He says, in 1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

When we practice living with Godly principles, we will notice the difference in ourselves. ~ Bill Greguska

Encouraging Principles To Live By:

If you can't fly, then run. If yoiu can't run, then walk. If you can't walk, then crawl, but by all means, keep moving. ~ Martin Luther King Jr. NeedEncouragement.com

Do not be afraid to try. You have everything to gain and nothing to lose! Proverbs 15:22 Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers, they succeed.







Some Specific Scriptures To Encourage You:

2 Timothy 3:16 ESV 

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,

Colossians 3:5 ESV 

Put to death, therefore, what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.

Galatians 5:19-21 ESV 

Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Galatians 5:22-23 ESV 

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things, there is no law.

So flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart.

Matthew 5:28 ESV 

But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

1 Corinthians 6:18 ESV 

Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.

Romans 12:2 ESV 

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing, you may discern God’s will and what is good and acceptable and perfect.

“If you love me, you will keep my commandments.

Matthew 6:24 ESV
