The Battle for the Life Jesus Promises: The Armor of God, AT Hargrave, 6/4/2017

The Battle for the Life Jesus Promises: The Armor of God

Sunday, June 4, AT spoke on The Battle for the Life Jesus Promises: The Armor of God, where he walked through Ephesians 6:10-20. He shared with us what it means to be clothes in the Amor of God, standing firm with the belt of truth, breastplate of righteousness, feet fitted with readiness, shield of faith, the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit. "We need to not just know the word, but know how to apply it."

God takes you into the desert so you can prove to God that you are his son/daughter, and he wants to show you that he is your Father. God is proving to us his great love.

Eph 6:10-20; 1 Thess 5:8; 2 Cor 2:16

Guilt: focused on self; seeks to be right and good; motivation is to relieve guilty feelings or to be worthy.

1. Guilt prevents love and intimacy

 Love's "want to" is smothered by guilts "have to."

 Fearing the loss of love one hides certain motives or desires.

2. Guilt prevents spiritual and emotional growth

People do not grow spiritually without bringing the hidden parts of their soul into the light.

Emotionally people do not grow when they present a "false self" that appears to be good or getting better. 

Godly sorrow: focused on the relationship; seeks reconciliation or union; motivation is to love

1. Godly sorrow produces love and intimacy.

Instead of being concerned with being right or good, godly sorrow is concerned the affects one's actions had on the other. 

2. Godly sorrow produces spiritual and emotional growth.

The change in desire comes from the ability ti bring the real self into the light of grace and truth.

Judges 6:1-10 NIV

6 The Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord, and for seven years he gave them into the hands of the Midianites. 2 Because the power of Midian was so oppressive, the Israelites prepared shelters for themselves in mountain clefts, caves and strongholds. 3 Whenever the Israelites planted their crops, the Midianites, Amalekites and other eastern peoples invaded the country. 4 They camped on the land and ruined the crops all the way to Gaza and did not spare a living thing for Israel, neither sheep nor cattle nor donkeys. 5 They came up with their livestock and their tents like swarms of locusts. It was impossible to count them or their camels; they invaded the land to ravage it. 6 Midian so impoverished the Israelites that they cried out to the Lord for help.

7 When the Israelites cried out to the Lord because of Midian, 8 he sent them a prophet, who said, “This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: I brought you up out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. 9 I rescued you from the hand of the Egyptians. And I delivered you from the hand of all your oppressors; I drove them out before you and gave you their land. 10 I said to you, ‘I am the Lord your God; do not worship the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you live.’ But you have not listened to me.”
