This Sunday we celebrated new babies being born, a new young life surrendered to Christ in baptism, and also recognized our deacons, for their above-and-beyond service during the past 15 months.
At South, we desire to reach those who are far from God, and grow up those who are already in Christ.
Our heart and lungs are in the mid-section of our bodies, so they need the most protection in order to keep us alive. The breastplate of righteousness is the spiritual piece that protects our heart-- the thinking/decision-making part of us.
This message is perfectly timed for Mother's Day - being "strong in the Lord" takes effort on our part, whether we're a mom, or not. It's the armor of God that gives us strength--Pastor Scott zeroed in on the Belt of Truth.
