- Sermons - Enjoying Life

Preached at the Sunday Morning service on April 3, 2011 by Pastor Ray Bertolet.
Part of the Enjoying Life series.

We need to be prepared and protected for what is headed our way. Hockey goalies need lots of protection in order to be prepared block the puck. Soldiers need to be prepared for whatever battle lies ahead. Peter is calls believers to be armed as well.

1 Peter 4:1-11 Therefore, since Christ has suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same purpose, (NIV says same attitude: NKJ says same mind) because he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, 2 so as to live the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for the lusts of men, but for the will of God. 3 For the time already past is sufficient for you to have carried out the desire of the Gentiles, having pursued a course of sensuality, lusts, drunkenness, carousing, drinking parties and abominable idolatries.

    Pastor Ray – Harry and I just listened to your message. Again, very soul searching and thought provoking. I think of the Scripture passage that says “Examine yourself and see if your in the faith”. This is a daily walk – keep on being filled with the Spirit – confessing sin and renewing right fellowship with the Lord. Good exhortation! Blessings, H&S

    God wants us to Himself, with no idols before Him. This message helps us to realize how easy it is to become distracted from the things of the Lord in our daily lives.
