Hello Church Family!

I welcome you to the 13th week of the year!

In our sermon Sunday, we looked at part two of Deliverance from Temptation and Evil and focused on God's provision of deliverance from the powers of evil. We learned that the evil one in Luke 11:4 is the devil, also called satan. We saw that although satan is not omnipresent, he has the fallen angels, known as demons, who work for him. In the end, we saw that Scripture encourages us not to overemphasize, underemphasize, or ignore the works of Satan and his cohorts. Instead, the Scripture teaches that we learn to be sober (this helps our discernment), vigilant (helps to stay alert and watchful), submit to God (our obedience positions us to lay hold of our authority in Christ), and resist the devil. This is how James 4:7 puts it, "Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you" (NKJV). My prayer is that we all will continue to seek deeper understanding on this matter and position ourselves to rule over the powers of temptation and evil in Jesus' name, AMEN!

In our Joys and Concerns - Let us continue to pray for one another, for our country, and for countries in crisis around the globe.

May your week be blessed and peaceful!
