Leading the Church
Christians can stand against Satan by being in Christ. God gives us all of the armor we need to defend ourselves. So, we are to trust Him and use Him and His gifts and tools!
How did Jesus respond to Satan and Spiritual Warfare? Immediately following His baptism by John and just before the start of His public ministry, Jesus was hammered and challenged by face-to-face!
Have you ever been hammered by Satan and/or temptations? Satan is real and he is powerful. Satan is our enemy, but we have access to an immensely far, far greater power.
We are already Triumphant in Christ! What can Satan and his war on Christ and His followers do to me? He can do to you only what God will allow for His glory.
The Devil's Lies! Satan has several ways in which he lies, tricks and deceives, and what is great about this for us is he does not change his game plan.
Satan the Roaring Lion! We cannot ignore Satan and spiritual warfare, nor can we turn a blind eye to his characteristics and schemes.
Do you know what Spiritual Warfare is all about? Some Christians spend all their energies on this subject while others do not even know that they are to be on guard against Satan and his demons.
Seek first the kingdom of God, a general overview of who is the will of God.
How is your seasoning? One of the key objectives of Francis Schaeffer's work was to help Christians think and process who they are in Christ. In so doing, one would look at God's precepts and then work them out so he could better be salt and light in the world in which we live. Schaeffer found, both as a pastor and in his early personal practice of Christianity, too much shallowness, preoccupation with trivialities, and what he saw as "irrationality."
Why is understanding about the Trinity essential for being a Christian?
