“You must no longer walk as the Gentiles do … You learned Christ …and were taught in him … to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life … and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness” (Ephesians 4:17, 20-24).
Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.
God is not mocking his children when he promises, “All things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28). And he is not lying when he promises, “The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry … The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles” (Psalm 34:15, 17).
Like Moses, when battles come, our first instinct should be to turn to God.
Believers must work constantly not to lose sight of God's work in our lives and will for our communities and world. In this week's sermon, Pastor Carter Conlon shares how believers can defend their minds and spirits against daily erosion and spiritual blindness. He encourages us to constantly remind ourselves of God's promises and past work so that we can remain aware of God's presence around us.
