A shield...that sounds really heavy. I don't know if I have the strength for this piece. Pastor Scott explains the importance, and how we should not go to battle daily, without it!
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.
Breastplate of Righteousness
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.
We Need a New Belt!
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.
Godly Employers and Employees
God is interested in who I am, at work? Yes, He most certainly is! Ephesians six gives us some help in this area -- Pastor Scott explains the context in which these verses are found--and sheds important light on the topic of slaves and masters.
Godly Parents and Children
We have all felt "provoked to wrath" by our parents when we were growing up! In this passage, Pastor Eric helps us understand just what the parent's responsibilities are, and what the child's responsibilities, too! No one is exempt, here!
God has a plan for husbands, that if followed, would help marriages to thrive! It includes loving leadership. Pastor Scott teaches us what this is, and what it could look like!
God has a wise and good plan that is for our best, and that includes specific instructions for wives, in marriage. Pastor Scott gives us what the Bible says about submission in marriage, for couples.
There is evidence of Christ's resurrection! Eyewitnesses, even! If you're a doubter, this message of Pastor Scott's will be especially helpful for you.
We focused on Christ's humiliation, His sinlessness, and His death, in this Good Friday service.
