Deeper in the Word-01/31/14 “Armor”

Crop_Book_of_Isaiah_2006-06-06Ephesians 6:13 Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm.

The armor of God is meant to be put on and then to not be taken off. You shouldn’t have to put it on every morning because it should never come off. The end of every battle against the enemy is you continuing to stand firm if you continue with the armor of God on.  So continue to stand and trust God for the victory in your battle. 

Deeper in the Word-01/29/14 “Making the Most of Time”

Crop_Book_of_Isaiah_2006-06-06Ephesians 5:15-16 So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days.

Wisdom makes the most of every opportunity to see the Kingdom of God expand. If we look with eyes of faith we will see those opportunities around every corner. People are all around you, who will receive the Good News from you today?

Deeper in the Word-01/29/14 “Living as People of Light”

Crop_Book_of_Isaiah_2006-06-06Ephesians 5:8 For once you were full of darkness, but now you have light from the Lord. So live as people of light!

At one point we were full of darkness. But when we believed on Jesus we received light and now that light is meant to be lived out everywhere we go. Light isn’t meant to be hidden, if we hide the light of God in us we rob people of an encounter with the love of Jesus. Put the light that Jesus gave you on display and let the world come and see.
