Last week we had an opposition that i did not face. The importance of Theology. It was a problem as some attendees felt Theology is the end all most important. some claim to be bible scholars (so isn't the enemy right). It more important to have a relationship with God then to study him. T.he same as we make friends because of how of our relationship with them not because of their life, background or college credentials.
Cain and Able - Who or What is the Enemy?
Key vrs: "If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do wrong sin is crouching at your door; It desires to have you but you must master it"
Picture the brazen Lion crouching waiting to pounce on an elephant for its dinner. That is what the enemy is when we are week.
Cain suffered from jealously what sins do we suffer from?
What are some ways we can control the sins?
Ideas of listen to praise music instead of watching violent tv
Setting password for Porn to bible vrs Example Isaiah 53:5 "He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities." Yes Jesus died for all sin
Jesus died for our sins and we are saved by his blood, but we are responsible for what we do. Sin not only hurts us but the ones around us. When sin sneaks up on you think what would Jesus do? John 14:2 "I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works" Jesus has given us the example. He has also prepared us Mathew 10:1 "He gave them authority to cast out evil spirits and to heal every kind of disease and illness." We have the authority and power to do all things for Gods glory. We are the Warriors that God has put in the front lines for the battle at hand our greatest weapon is his love.
