1. Opening Prayer.
2. Icebreaker: Share your story of how you came to Christ?
We are in the world but not of the world. As America goes, so does the world. America is in trouble and so is the world. As we go about our lives and personal businesses, it is often hard to see what is going on all around us. As we focus on our little lights, it is quite easy to forget that there is darkness all around us. The church seems to havetaken a long nap. We are supposed to be God’s buffer against evil in the world. We were created to subdue the earth and to exercise dominion. When we hibernate, sleep and slumber, we give room for evil to pervade the earth. It is time we arise and shine.
Did you know? (Statistics):
There is great manifestation of evil in our world.
The Christian’s Dilemma
What does the bible (God’s word) have to say about how we are to respond to the manifestation of evil in our world?
There is a dilemma today. Christians are caught up in the world; pulled between the flesh and the Spirit; Between the things of God and of the world. Every generation of Christians have their unique challenges. Comfort and prosperity can be stumbling blocks for the 21st century Christian – making it hard to see and respond to the present darkness.
God’s response to evil is always people – Adam & Eve, Noah, Judges, Prophets etc… His only son Jesus.
3. How are we doing in this spiritual warfare? How can we better engage and overcome darkness?
