A victorious, conquering life is the longing of every human heart. We all want to overcome the enemies of life, enemies that seek to defeat and destroy us, enemies such as destructive passions, hostility, drug addiction, disease, divorce, financial difficulties, abuse, alcoholism, mental or emotional problems, unemployment, the loss of a loved one, or greed. No matter what the challenge is, whether a person or a trial, each of us longs for the strength to drive away the force that seeks to defeat us.
In the book of Judges, the children of Israel lived in the constant dread of their enemies. Moses and Joshua were dead, Israel was left to drive out their remaining enemies. As long as the enemies remained, Israel would have no peace. Before Israel could fully enjoy the promised land, the people had to drive out the enemies. Because God shows mercy to repentant sinners, we can have victory. This Sunday we will see how we can drive out our enemies and live a life of victory in Jesus. The title of the message is “Knowing a Merciful God.”
For our fellowship meal after church, we’ll have spaghetti with meat sauce and buttery garlic bread. Please bring your favorite dish to share with our guests and the CCW family. What you bring adds such variety to our meal. Thank you for pitching in and helping with the set up of the tables and chairs, the serving of the food or the clean up. Many hands make light work!
Join us as we continue the Experiencing God Bible study at 8:45, Sunday.
Jesus is Awesome!
