Description: We look at the fifth piece of the Armor of God and the last of the defensive pieces (the last is offensive). This piece truly represents the last piece of our defense, where we must look beyond the temporal battle and fix our eyes upon Jesus and the most sure hope of glory, knowing that this battle will have an end and the end is known and victorious.
Description: Our Redeemer lives. He was victorious over death the grave could not hold Him. Paul presents in 1 Corinthians 15 the facts concerning the resurrection of Christ to those at the church at Cornith.
Description: The problem of division and disunity in the body of Christ is nothing new. It is a problem which Paul addresses in his letter to the church in Ephesus and which we will examine in this message. Paul clearly lays out the theological basis for the unity of the church by describing the work of the triune God in the lives of His people. Difficulty arises because those whom God has called to be His are made up of people from so many backgrounds that division seems likely. For this reason, Paul instructs his readers to better understand the unity they have in Christ and how that unity is to be lived out in our daily experience.
Description: All through the New Testament from the time of the Ascension onward, the one assurance is that Christ is living; and in His life we live, hold fellowship with God, receive grace for daily living and rejoice in victory over sin, sorrow and death. Our message today is a reassuring message of hope, trust and belief in the Risen Lord.
Description: The Apostle Peter, in 1 Peter 3:13-17, tells his readers that they should not fear men and any suffering they might encounter. Quoting Isaiah 8:11-13, Peter writes that they should have a reverence for Jesus and be always ready to tell others why they have hope.
