  • Weapons For Offense

    Contributed on Mar 30, 2010
    based on 9 ratings

    After encouraging believers with different defensive weapons for "spiritual warfare", Paul gives two weapons that together give the believer weapons for "hand to hand" combat. Both however, only work through the power and connection of the Spirit.

    A. Quote: Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones wrote this about our spiritual battle: A man who does not understand the nature of the problem he is confronting is a man who is already doomed to failure. Christian people are like first-year college students—they think at first that every subject is quite more

    A reminder of 3 truths taken from Paul's letter to the Ephesians: 1- we are in a Battle, 2- It's Invisible, and 3- we must Make a Stand. We are reminded that God's Armor is available for the believer but it must be fitted - fitted by spiritual growth and

  • When Did We?

    This message helps the church ask why we do the acts of mercy we do? What is our motive? Last in a series of 4, we are reminded that all opportunities of service are to be done as though we are doing them for the Master Himself!

    Introduction Today, we end our study of preparation for the Vision of our church for the year 2010. We’ve talked about: 1. Recognizing the Open Doors (Rev. 3:7-8) 2. Effective Prayer (Col. 6:2-6) 3. Effective Giving (2 Cor 8:1-15) And now today the question, “When Did more

  • Effective Giving

    Contributed on Jan 23, 2010
    based on 6 ratings

    The example of the Macedonian our Corinthian churches give us tremendous advice on the sensitive subject of tithing for NT believers today! Advice that is easy to understand requiring very little interpretation!

    So much is said about tithing and yet it is probably the most difficult subject for me to speak on. I think it would be actually easier if the church was wealthy. Why is this such a sensitive subject? Or maybe its me, but why is it so hard to preach on? What about to you? Think about it for a more
