Why is there so much conflict in the world?

Remembrance Day sermon Pincher Creek, Alberta church

Text to Read: 2 Corinthians 10:1-5 NIV

Main Points:

  • You must recognize that there’s a war going on for the mind, body, and soul of every human. This war has been going on for nearly all of human history.

  • In this war, you are either a passive or active participant, but you don’t get to sit it out.

    • When you live passively, you will find that you are influenced by the culture all around you and strongholds will be built in your life from which Satan will be enabled to launch attacks on your mind and spirit.

    • Paul points out that his weaponry is superior to Satan’s: the Truth of Jesus’ Good News has God’s power, but it must be used intentionally!

    • Once we recognize the power of the Good News (or, Gospel), we must confess of our sins to break the enemy’s power (1 John 1:9 NLT), consistently affirm the Truth in our hearts by reading the Truth God has given us in the Bible, and must share this Truth!

    • Paul shows us that we must not allow these strongholds to be rebuilt. Instead, we must take EVERY thought captive to Jesus!

  • Remember the weapons of your warfare: read your Bible, confess, and pray; then, show others the Way.

We Are the Church: A Part of the Whole Body of Christ

Text to Read: 1 Corinthians 12:12-27 NLT

Watch the message:

The Main Points:

  • In the body of Christ, everyone has a role, and no role is too small.
  • Too often, you miss out on the purpose God has for you because you are looking inward instead of outward.
  • Jesus modelled the ultimate act of serving others for their benefit and for God's glory, and he taught that we are to follow his example.
    • Action Step: All believers should actively seek to serve the body of Christ (ie, the Church). We must serve, not sit!
