‘Take Up the Full Armor of God’

Ephesians 6:10-20 ‘On account of this, take up the full armor of God, in order that you may be able to resist in the evil day and have done everything, to stand.’ (v.13) Teaching through this passage tonight as our Shepherding Group wraps up Ephesians.  So often our cry as Christians and our struggle is … Continue reading

Developing Right Thinking…

It is so critical that we continue to develop right thinking amidst our sinful world.  I’m so thankful for the godly men and women who are diligently addressing the relevant cultural issues.  In the past couple of days I’ve encountered a few articles that I believe are worth sharing.  Excerpts from each article are posted … Continue reading

The God Who is Humble

A Lesson from Job

Last week I posted a couple of thoughts from a sermon I’d heard preached on Job 9 – you can view that post here. However, as I’ve continued reading through Job I keep stumbling upon a couple of interwoven themes that I’ve desperately needed to heed.  I’ve never formally studied or taught through Job, but … Continue reading
