God’s Armor – Week 6 – Shield of Faith

God's Armor - Week 6 - Shield of Faith

The Shield of Faith is supposed to protect us from the attacks of Satan. How does that work? Is there something we need to do in order to use this shield in our lives? Or does it protect us without our knowing? And what does an arrow fired from the spiritual world look like in […]

God’s Armor – Week 5 – Shoes

God's Armor - Week 5 - Shoes

The shoes carry the soldier forward into battle. Without shoes you might be able to stand and defend, but you will never be able to go on the attack. Paul calls these the Gospel Shoes. How does this fit into our life? How does the Gospel prepare us to go on the march against the […]

God’s Armor – Week 4 – Protecting The Heart

God's Armor - Week 4 - Protecting The Heart

Continuing in the God’s Armor, we move to the “Breastplate of Righteousness.” You don’t have to be a Seminary Student to see the symbolism Paul is invoking here: The breastplate protects the most important part of the soldier — the heart. But how do we get the righteousness that protects? Is it just following a […]

God’s Armor – Week 3 – Truth Part 3

God's Armor - Week 3 - Truth Part 3

We finish up the discussion of the “Belt of Truth” with looking at the final purpose of God’s truth in our lives: God’s Truth comes to convict. This does not mean condemn. And the difference is important…BIBLE REFERENCES: Ephesians 6:13-14; John 16:13; John 16:6; Psalm 26:1-4; 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; James 5:13; Luke 11:2-5; 2 Corinthians […]

God’s Armor – Week 2 – Truth Part 2

God's Armor - Week 2 - Truth Part 2

The Belt of Truth, as we learned in the previous sermon, is the center of everything. But it does far more than that for the Christian warrior. It also protects us from falsehood. Falsehood that attacks us has a special name: Deception. And we must guard against it because it can enter our lives in […]

God’s Armor – Week 1 – Truth

God's Armor - Week 1 - Truth

We start looking into the passage in Ephesians discussing God’s Armor, starting where the Apostle Paul did: With Truth. And to illustrate the point, Pastor Grice shares a very personal story from his past. You might need a Kleenex for this one. “I’m not crying — you’re crying!” BIBLE REFERENCES: John 18:37-38; Ephesians 6:10-17; Philippians […]

MGIG – Week 17 – The Devil Dilemma

MGIG - Week 17 - The Devil Dilemma

60% of Christians don’t believe there is a Devil. That’s CHRISTIANS. Not Americans. That even holds true for many preachers. One megachurch preacher recently said in a sermon: “Don’t get too freaked out about the demon thing. Back in those days, everything was a demon. If a person sneezed, they thought he had a demon.” […]

Easter 2019 – He is Risen, So What?

Easter 2019 - He is Risen, So What?

“He is Risen!” “He is Risen, Indeed!” That is the classic greeting in churches on Easter morning. But, honestly, how many people would respond the same way a month after Easter has come and gone? Does the fact that Jesus rose from the grave mean anything to most people as they go about their daily […]

MGIG – Week 16 – Truth About Sin

MGIG - Week 16 - Truth About Sin

What is Sin, really? Is it just some old concept that the church invented so it could control morality? Has the definition of Sin changed over the years? And if it is a horrible affliction that is destroying us and our world, why can’t we ever seem to get it out of our lives? Here’s […]

MGIG – Week 15 – Worlds Collide

MGIG - Week 15 - Worlds Collide

Have you ever wondered what the point of Christianity is? You turn to Jesus at some point, but still struggle with the same sin that you did when you didn’t know Jesus? It’s like the same thing happening over and over again? Maybe we are finding it hard to live as a Christian because our […]
