Put on the Full Armor of God

FullArmor Tommy Gore 1-15-2017

Do you have what it takes to be a hero? Few of us face a test as severe as Rupert Mayer faced in Germany in the 1930s. As the Nazis began their rise to power, Mayer opposed them. He attended their public meetings and then spoke out against their message. He publicly stated that a Christian could not in good conscience be a Nazi. The Nazis tried not to make a martyr out of him since he was a WWI hero but when WWII began, they arrested him and sent him to a prison camp. He was such an inspiration to the other prisoners, the Nazis considered him a bad influence and moved him to house arrest in a monastery until the Allies liberated him at the end of the war. He died shortly afterward but his example had touched many people. In 1948 when his body was moved to a more prominent gravesite, 35,000 people paid tribute to his life. When his time of severe testing came, Rupert Mayer had stood firm and lived out his convictions. We may not face testing so severe, but Paul knows that we will be tested. Satan will not let a life lived for a holy God go unchallenged. So he says, “Get ready.” Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God. Scripture Readings: 1 Peter 1:13-16, Ephesians 6:10-13; Sermon Scripture - Ephesians 6:10-20

Let The Lord Touch Every Relationship

Relationship Tommy Gore 1-8-2017

As we’ve observed practical Christian living is intimately connected to doctrinal teaching. Notice in this passage that we “submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.” It’s because of what Christ has done for us that we are willing to yield ourselves to the needs of others. A wife’s submission to her husband becomes a part of her spiritual commitment to Christ. A husband’s leadership will be a loving, serving style of leadership if he is committed to love his wife as Christ loved the church. A child can obey a parent “in the Lord.” A parent can excel because he wants to bring up his children “in the training and instruction of the Lord.” In other words we are to let the Lord touch every relationship. Scripture Readings: 1 Peter 1:6-9, Ephesians 5:21-28; Sermon Scripture - Ephesians 5:21-6:9

Live As The Children Of The Light

ChildrenOfLight Tommy Gore 1-1-2017

We live in a culture that is hyper-sensitive to anything approaching “judgmental.” There are at least two things we ought to keep in mind:

1) We ought to avoid actually being judgmental, harsh toward others, lacking in mercy and compassion. Jesus figured out how to be a friend of sinners without being a sinner. People need to see the father of the Prodigal Son in us—that repentance will bring a sinner to an open door.

2) We need to remember that God is allowed to make judgments about right and wrong and He has done so. Discernment between right and wrong, between light and darkness, is essential if we are to live as children of light.

What a joy to no longer be infants but to grow up in all things and become more like Christ. Scripture Readings: 1 Peter 1:3-5, Ephesians 4:32-5:2; Sermon Scripture - Ephesians 4:17-5:20
