While all of us might not recognize obvious spiritual warfare in our lives, all of us need to come to grips with the fact that we have a spiritual enemy who has declare war against us. He’s not a myth and he doesn’t run around in a little red suit with a pitchfork. He’s real and he’s ruthless. He’s insanely jealous of God and for a season has measure of freedom in which he is hell-bent on creating havoc. On top of this, he’s incredibly deceptive and has thousands of years of experience in understanding human nature–he’s seen it all.
In my new teaching series in Spiritual Warfare, we’ll go to the Word to determine the origin of our enemy and why he’s allowed to operate. We’ll discover the place where we’re vulnerable to attack and how to defend ourselves and to walk in victory. Remember what Peter said…
2 Peter 1:3 NIV Through his divine power, Jesus has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.
To get the most out of the series and to make the best contribution to your life group, I want to encourage you to use the Scriptures we’ve included in the weekly Bible study. In addition, I want you to ask the Lord who you might invite to visit CrossBridge. God is working in so many significant ways in our fellowship–I think we’ve got a responsibility to share it.
