When we begin to walk with God, we assume life will be good and everything will start going our way. But Satan is a real influence in this world, and he opposes God and all who would turn to him. This message looks at how to discern his influence in your life and stand against his attacks.
1 Thessalonians 2:17-3:5 // [outline]
Most of us want to lead useful lives. We want to accomplish things. We want to bring light into darkness. If we have children, we want to nurture them in ways that will bless them. But there are things we can do to undermine our impact. This message looks at the mindsets that are critical to making the most of the influence God has given us.
1 Thessalonians 2:1-16 // [outline]
As people take steps in the Christian life, they can be tempted to think that ‘the secret’ is in some new teaching or experience. But growth in the Christian life comes by returning to the starting point and deepening our understanding and response to the foundation. This message looks at that foundation and the most common ways people misunderstand and stray from it.
1 Thessalonians 1:1-10 // [outline]
