Sermon Series Continues – “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. This week, we will explore the 7th weapon – “Prayer – Praying Always!” Prayer is the all encompassing weapon. Prayer is our secret and stealth weapon. Let’s soar as we explore; “Prayer – Praying Always.”
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!
Special Announcement: Next Sunday is our 5th Sunday Pot Blessing Fellowship Meal and Singing. Pastor Melvin Bunn and the Perpetual Praise International Church (PPIC) will be leading the praise and worship and I’ll be preaching. The “Riggs Family Edition” singers will be our special musical guest for the morning worship service and for our following 5th Sunday Singing. I am so excited! They are the children/grandchildren of one of my major mentors the late Rev. Paul E. Riggs.
