Sheep’s Clothing

John tells us to put all influences on trial. That means we compare everything that comes into our lives with the truth of God's holy word, the Bible. If it does not match up to the entire message of the Bible, we should kick it out of our lives – especially if it is claiming to a message from God!

Triumphal Feast • Ephesians 1:8-14 “Sealed with that Holy Spirit of Promise” pt. 2

The gospel describes our value to God. Our belief in the gospel seals our minds and hearts with the knowledge that God loves us. With this belief as our foundation, we can face the hatred and wickedness around us with a different perspective. Rather than facing hate with hate, we can face all that we see with the love of Christ pouring out of us.
