Sermon Recap for November 13

Well, it’s Thursday afternoon. And I’m just now getting this done. Partly because of insanely slow Internet service. Partly because stuff had to get done. I’m hopeful that the craziest part of the week is over.

Since the bulk of the week is over, that is.

Sunday Morning: The Longest War (audio here) Ephesians 6:10-17

(Outline and notes are after the evening video, just scroll down.)

Sunday Evening: Ephesians 6:18-20 and Q&A (Audio here)

On Sunday nights, we typically take some time to do Bible questions and answers. That is in the video but not the audio. I think I repeated the questions well enough to understand what was going on.

 


The Longest War

The Longest War

Doug Hibbard / General

Ephesians 6:10–17

 

Ephesians 6:10–17 NASB95

    Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.
    Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.
    For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
    Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.
    Stand firm therefore, HAVING GIRDED YOUR LOINS WITH TRUTH, and HAVING PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS,
    and having shod YOUR FEET WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE;
    in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
    And take THE HELMET OF SALVATION, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

 

The Longest War


Know Your Enemy


Look to your  left  and your  right


Those people are  NEVER  your enemy


Look to  up here  and  back there


Those people are  NEVER  your enemy


Look to your  political left and right


Those people are  NEVER y our enemy


Look to the  past  and to the  future


Ready for it.... NEVER  your enemy


Your enemy is the enemy of your C ommander


  You don't pick your enemy


  Your Lord picks your enemy


Know Your Commander


Look....well, all those directions you looked for the enemy.


That's not where your Commander is, either.


Know Your Objective


It's a rescue mission.


Not a slaughter.


And those people?


Remember: not your enemy.


Use Your Tools


Girded loins? Think tool belt, Batman!


Breastplate of Righteousness: slows assaults


Shoes! The Gospel, the foundation


Shield! Which is used WITH OTHER SHIELDS!


Helmet. For your  noggin '. Little things destroy our heads without a helmet.


One tool of offense! The Sword of the Spirit---which is the Word of God

Book Review: The Heart Mender by @andyandrews (Andy Andrews)

The Heart Mender: A Story of Second ChancesEver read a book that you just kind of wish is true?  That's my take on The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews.  It's a charming story of love and forgiveness, and it's woven into the historical setting of World War II America.  For the narrative alone, the book is worth the read, but the message it contains is well worth absorbing as well.However, let's drop back a minute.  This book was originally published under the title Island of Saints.  I read Island of Saints and enjoyed it greatly.  Now, Andrews has released it under a new title, with a few minor changes.  All of this is explained in the Author's Note at the beginning, but should be noted for purchaser's sake.  If you read Island of Saints, you're rereading when you read The Heart Mender.  Now, go ahead and reread it.  It will not hurt you one bit.Overall, the story is well-paced.  There are points where I'd like more detail, both in the history and the geog…

Book: By the Waters of Babylon

Worship. It is what the church does as we strive to honor God with our lips and our lives. And then, many churches argue about worship. I have about a half-dozen books on my shelf about worship, but adding Scott Aniol’s By the Waters of Babylon to the shelf has been excellent.

First of all, Aniol’s work is not based on solving a musical debate. While that branch of worship is often the most troublesome in the local church, By the Waters of Babylon takes a broader view. The starting point is the place of the church. That place is a parallel of Psalm 137, where the people of God, Israel, found themselves in a strange land. The people of God, again, find themselves in a strange land.
Second, in summary, the book works logically to the text of Scripture, primarily Psalm 137 but well-filled with other passages. Then it works outward from how the text addresses the problems submitted in the first chapter into how worship, specifically corporate worship, should look in the 21st century Weste…
