Spiritual Warfare – The Armor

Speaker: Pastor Ken Burgess
Series: The Wealth and Walk of the Christian #25
Title: “Spiritual Warfare – The Armor”
Scripture: Ephesians 6:13-17
Date: 02-04-18 Sun. AM

Description: In these closing verses of the letter, Paul discusses three aspects of the believer’s spiritual war – the adversary, the armor, and the activity, so we can walk in victory. Since we are fighting against enemies in the spirit world, we need the armor God has provided for us, and we dare not omit any part. Satan looks for that unguarded area where he can get a beachhead. Paul commanded his readers to put on the 6 pieces of armor, take the weapons, and withstand Satan, all of which we do by faith. The Armor is Jesus Christ Himself! This means that when we trusted Christ, we received the armor by position but metaphorically we “put on” the Lord Jesus Christ by practice.

Spiritual Warfare – The Adversary

Speaker: Pastor Ken Burgess
Series: The Wealth and Walk of the Christian #24
Title: “Spiritual Warfare – The Adversary”
Scripture: Ephesians 6:10-12
Date: 01-28-18 Sun. AM

Description: Sooner or later every believer discovers that the Christian life is a battleground, not a playground, and that he faces an enemy who is much stronger than he is — apart from the Lord. Paul uses military imagery to illustrate the believer’s conflict with Satan. Satan wants to use our external enemy, the world, and our internal enemy, the flesh, to defeat us. His weapons and battle plans are powerful!

Title: “The Christ-Centered Workplace”
Scripture: Ephesians 6:5-9
Date: 01-21-18 Sun. AM

Description: Many American workers don’t like their jobs, and many of them view their work as a necessary evil. As Christians, we need to rediscover what the Bible says about work. We can apply Paul’s words about slaves and masters to the employee/employer relationship. Work is a sacred duty in which we live out our faith and bring God glory.

Scripture: Ephesians 6:1-4
Date: 01-14-18 Sun. AM
