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.

How do I pursue my dream with passion?

Text to Read: 2 Samuel 23:8 NIV

Watch the whole message:

The main points:

  • We don’t die when our hearts stop beating. We die when our hearts top skipping a beat in pursuit of God and the dream he’s given us, when our hearts stop breaking for the things that break the heart of God.

  • When you pursue a dream you’re passionate about you’ll see it through.

    • See Jeremiah 20:9 NLT

  • Your ultimate source of passion comes as a response to the passion of Jesus Christ.

    • See Philippians 3:7-8 NLT

    • See Matthew 6:21 NIV

  • Action Step:

    • Spend time reflecting on the significance of Jesus’ sacrifice for your life until you rediscover your passion for Christ.
