This Weeks Sermon: “The Helmet of Hope of Salvation” – We are going to revisit this sermon. This sermon first preached this past June 1st was and is the catalyst for this current sermon series. In all my years of pastoring, I’ve never repeated a sermon. But in obedience – I will and must obey the Holy Spirit. AMEN! Let’s soar as we explore “The Helmet of Hope of Salvation!” AMEN!
HOPE: The basic definition of HOPE is: “The belief that something good may happen.” Hope is that intangible that has a direct influence / bearing on the tangible. Proverbs13:12 says, “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when desires come, they are a tree of life.” Hebrews 6:19 says, “Hope is the anchor of our souls.” Romans 15:13 is our cap stone verse for 2014. “Now may the God of Hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in Hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” May it be said of us at EFC – that ECF is a “Place of Hope” and that we are a people of promise! AMEN!
Sermon Series Continues – “Dressed for the Battle.” While preparing the sermon “Helmet of HOPE of Salvation” the Lord begin to develop in me this new sermon series, “Dressed for the Battle.” Ephesians 6 describes, discusses and instructs the Believer in our spiritual armor. Every sport has its required uniform/armor. Life is more than a “game” – it is eternal! It is a matter of life and death. In this series we will explore all 7 parts of our spiritual armor. Next Sunday we will explore “Sword of the Spirit – Word of God!”
