ARMOR OF GOD

Sermon website photo.jpg

WE CONTINUED THE ARMOR OF GOD BY EXPANDING ON THE GOSPEL OF PEACE AND THE SHIELD OF FAITH. WE LOOKED AT THE TEXT IN LIGHT OF CHRIST AS OUR SHEPHERD KING (EPHESIANS 6:12-16; ISAIAH 61:1-4; MATTHEW 11:28-30).

WE STAND TOGETHER.

WITH THE PAINFUL AWARENESS OF THE SHOOTING IN EL PASO AND DAYTON, WE LOOKED AT EPHESIANS 6:12-15. WE STAND TOGETHER AGAINST THE FORCES OF EVIL WITH THE TRUTH, RIGHTEOUSNESS AND THE GOSPEL OF PEACE. THERE IS A SPIRITUAL REALITY OF EVIL THAT THREATENS TO UNDERMINE THE CHURCH’S RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, THEIR UNITY IN THE BODY AND THEIR VOCATIONAL PURPOSE.

THIS WEEK PASTOR JOHN GAVE US A FEW REMINDERS ABOUT WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A FOLLOWER OF CHRIST. WE’VE BEEN ADDED TO THE LORD, BECAME A MEMBER OF HIS BODY AND ARE CALLED TO BE DEVOTED TO CHRIST AND ONE ANOTHER.

(ACTS 5:12-20; JOHN 15:4-16)


UNION OF MARRIAGE PT. 2

THIS WEEK PASTOR JOHN, WITH SOME HELP FROM HIS WIFE, KASEY, UNPACKED THE ROLES THAT HUSBANDS AND WIVES PLAY TO MAINTAIN UNION IN MARRIAGE. MARRIAGE IS THE COVENANTAL UNION OR PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN HUSBAND AND WIFE, DESIGNED BY GOD TO DISPLAY THE UNION OF CHRIST AND THE CHURCH. MARRIAGE IS DESIGNED BY GOD TO HELP BOTH THE HUSBAND AND WIFE TO FULLY LIVE OUT THEIR DESIGNED PURPOSE FOR BEING. THE WIFE IS TO ALLOW HER HUSBAND TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR HER AS CHRIST TAKES RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE CHURCH. THE HUSBAND IS TO LOVINGLY LAY DOWN HIS OWN AGENDA AND TO LEAD HIS WIFE LIKE CHRIST DOES FOR THE CHURCH. (EPHESIANS 5:18-33).

UNION OF MARRIAGE PT. 1

THIS WEEK WE LOOKED AT THE GOAL OF MARRIAGE: UNION. IT FLOWS OUT OF OUR NEW LIFE IN CHRIST, DISPLAYS HOW CHRIST AND THE CHURCH ARE ONE AND FINALLY, UNION IN MARRIAGE HELPS US TO FIGHT SPIRITUAL BATTLES (EPHESIANS 5:21-33).

THE ONLY PSALM
