God told Jeremiah to go to the gates of the temple and to preach to the people of Judah not to place their faith in the institution of the temmple. Sometimes, we also put our faith in the instutution of the church instead of the gospel of Jesus Christ. This message gives us three pitfalls to avoid in our efforts to restore and revitalize the church.
Would you believe that God actually gives us a roadmap to revitalization and restoration? Being a God who restores, he wants us to understand what it takes to restore life and vitality to his people. Many such stories in the Bible exist, including this one in Isaiah 58.
If God can bring an army of bones to life, he can restore a struggling church. What principles can we learn from this story to help us revitalize the church?
The repelling armor - or as some call it, the offensive weapons - of the Armor of God are the same two things that serve as the foundation of Christian discipleship - The Word of God and Prayer. This message tells us how to use these to help us Stand Firm against the attacks of Satan.
In this message, we look at five of the pieces of the Armor of God - specifically, those that we view as protective in nature. Each are vital in our defense against the attacks of the evil one. Put on the WHOLE Armor of God.
Behold, I will be with you always... God is everywhere... but he is imminently present with you personally. Know what it means to experience the presence of God in your life.
