WEAPONS OF WARFARE
Speaker: Pastor Keith Goullette
Theme: Church Life
Thesis: Do Battle God’s Way
Scripture Text: II Corinthians 10:1-6 (next week II Corinthians 10:7-15)
I. Do - v. 1-2
II. Difference - v. 3-6
So that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
I CORINTHIANS 4:21
What do you desire? Shall I come to you with a rod, or with love and a spirit of gentleness?
But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh.
See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ.
II TIMOTHY 2:3-4
Suffer hardship with me, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No soldier in active service entangles himself in the affairs of everyday life, so that he may please the one who enlisted him as a soldier.
SCRIPTURE TEXT—II CORINTHIANS 10:1-6
Now I, Paul, myself urge you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ—I who am meek when face to face with you, but bold toward you when absent! I ask that when I am present I need not be bold with the confidence with which I propose to be courageous against some, who regard us as if we walked according to the flesh. For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, and we are ready to punish all disobedience, whenever your obedience is complete.
