1st John Series • 2. The First Step to Finding Joy (1st John 1:4-2:2) John told his readers that his purpose for writing to them is so that they could live a joyful life even though the whole world lies in wickedness. In this message, Elder Bryce shows us that John faithfully tells us how Jesus designed for us to find that joy. In order to have a joyful walk with God from day to day, the first thing we must do is see sin as God sees sin. We must repent of it and walk more like Jesus. This message was preached at Mount Paran Primitive Baptist Church on January 10, 2021.
Ephesians Series • 24. The Breastplate of Righteousness Ephesians 6:14b, pt. 2 (October 25, 2020) Today’s episode of Triumphal Feast is part 2 of the message about The Breastplate of Righteous found in Ephesians Chapter 6. We will begin with an example of Ananias and Saphira to show that our outward righteous acts are not enough to justify us before God. We must have Christ righteousness counted to us to stand before an holy God. Blessed is the man that knows what he has done but also understands that it is not counted against him
Ephesians Series • 24. The Breastplate of Righteousness Ephesians 6:14b, pt. 1 (October 25, 2020) Elder Bryce continues to look at Paul’s charge to us to put on the whole armor of God in order to be prepared as disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. We need natural armor to fight natural warfare. We also need spiritual armor to fight spiritual battles. Much like a bullet-proof vest, the breastplate of righteousness protects are heart. Our understanding of righteousness is very vital to how we live every day.
Our own righteousness is no better than that of the Scribes and Pharisees. We need something much greater to justify us before a Holy God.
We do not have to slavishly seek to please God by our will or works. We can, with great liberty, live our live in thankful righteousness.
Fellow child of the King, if we do not give God the glory, who will?
I discovered the reason I wasn’t being persecuted was because I wasn’t acting righteous enough!
Whether you are actually hungry or you hunger and thirst after righteousness, the feeling is the same — empty.
Poor, weak, and worthless though I am, I have a rich Almighty Friend! Jesus, the Savior is His name. He freely loves and without end.
