Standing Strong in the Lord

What are you doing with your life that Satan would love to stop?  What are you doing that Satan would love to see you keep doing?  Those are two big battlefields in your life: the things that you know you should do for God and the things you know that God wants you to give up.  Two weeks ago we looked at the reality of spiritual warfare and the danger of thinking we are able to handle it ourselves.  This week we want to continue that study, looking at how we can be successful in it.  We truly live in evil times, the last days as described in 2 Timothy where Paul wrote:

"But know this: Hard times will come in the last days.  For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, proud, demeaning, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 unloving, irreconcilable, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, without love for what is good, 4 traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 holding to the form of godliness but denying its power."*

We are either fighting to stay holy and advancing the Gospel of Christ or else we are right where Satan wants us.  I desire that today's message will help us all to stand strong in the Lord and not succumb to Satan's craftiness.  I hope you will join in the service.
