Sunday's Message
July 23, 2017

DEFEAT SATAN
THROUGH GOD'S WORD

This Sunday I’m closing out my theme on “Live by God’s Word.”  Sunday’s sermon is “Defeat Satan through God’s Word” from Luke 4:1-15. 

C.S. Lewis, who had been an atheistic professor but came to know Jesus and taught at Oxford and Cambridge, wrote The Screwtape Letters in which a senior demon advises a junior demon how to tempt.  The book became an instant classic.  People asked Lewis if he was simply using demons and Satan as literary devices.  In 1942 when the book was first published, the intelligentsia rejected any notion of Satan.  But Lewis said that he did believe that there is a devil.  He said that Scripture teaches it, Christian tradition supports it, most people throughout history have believed in it and there’s nothing in science to disprove it.  Besides, he said, history and personal experience support the notion that there is a personal force for evil in the world.

So, how do we have victory over Satan, the being who wants to keep us from Christ and from having a victorious, abundant, productive life?     

When Jesus was tempted by Satan he simply quoted Scripture, and Satan fled.  Of course, they were appropriate passages.  Although Jesus was the Son of God, he came to earth to live as the Son of Man, using techniques we should use. 

So, let’s use Scripture to defeat Satan!  Come this Sunday and learn how.

Last Sunday our service was great!  Our dance team was wonderful!  The kids did a great job from Vacation Bible School and the décor and special effects were out of this world!  Thanks to all who participated in the events of Sunday and last week!

Anyone who has joined the church since I’ve come needs to come to our two week New Beginnings Class which starts this Sunday at 9:00 in the Conference Room.  You’ll love it!

 

With love in Christ,
Dr. Jim Meek
