Sermon Series: Life
Text: Ephesians 5:17-6:9; 6:10-20
Preacher: Brent McCrory
Everyone has a need to belong. There is simply no way around this. Therefore, it makes complete sense why the Bible talks about God adopting us, and why “brothers” and “sisters” is a common descriptor for the people of God. God has a family…and He wants everyone in it.
However, there is also an enemy (i.e., the evil one, Satan, the devil, or a variety of other names/labels) who desires to wreak havoc and unleash chaos, not only in God’s family, but also in any family he can – whether they follow Jesus or not. There are steps we can take to push back the chaos the evil one desires to bring…but we cannot do it apart from the sword of the Spirit.
