Defeated by a Thought
So I have spent the better part of the last couple of months thinking about this Sunday's service and what to preach the week before we launch our 2020 vision as a church. The thing I kept coming back to was that if we are going to embrace this coming vision then we are going to need to gird our courage. I find more and more people are afraid of more and more things. I mean way beyond normal healthy fears like, snakes, roller coasters and horror movies, which may reflect a personal list. I am not even talking about being over-cautious or over-protective, natural responses that come from living in a broken world. I am talking about how we can end up defeated before the battle even takes place. We are clearly in a time in Christendom, where we need to stand strong and stand together. We are clearly in a time when we need to take the hill so that the city on the hill can shine the light of Christ for all to see. We are clearly in a time when if the courage of Godly men and women fail that the collateral damage will be everlasting for generations to come. How equipped are we for the war being waged for the souls of men and women all over the world? You see, there is power in pre-decisions about the power of our King. There is also contagious fear in pre-decisions about the size of enemy. The Bible gives us two great accounts of what this looks like and we will look at them in reverse this Sunday. I love you, and look forward to beginning our New Year together in worship.
