The Strong Man Luke 11:14-26
We are making progress!!
WE HIT OUR CARPETING GOAL!!
Thanks to God's provision through YOU, our carpeting has been paid for!
While it is in the process of being installed we are looking forward to the next step of continuing to care for God's Church, that step will be the lighting.
The cost of new Lighting will be $994. GIFTS OF ANY SIZE will be so helpful. Thank you for helping to make these things happen!
We would love for you to look for a way to give BEYOND your tithe and regular offering to get these important projects completed.
Mark donations for the BUILDING FUND, whether giving on-line using our Faithlife Giving, by check, or by dropping off a bar of gold!
While the Flooring and lights are getting taken care of, Cliff Buchner is rallying to fix the exterior basement stairwell and entrance. JUST A LOT OF STUFF TO KEEP UP ON!!! Thank you for supporting the efforts to make NHCC's facility better.
A Note from Pastor Jerry!
BACK TO THE PARABLES of JESUS! This week we'll be diving in to what the Enemy of your soul intends for your life. READ LUKE 11:14-26. He has no desire to let you be free from the grip of his tyranny...He is the "Strongman." But, there is one stronger!
Jesus is stronger than the one who comes to steal, kill, and destroy!
He has not only set us free, he has made a way to defend against and even deny the Enemy's access to your heart and future.
When we look around our world today, what do we see? Every now and again we see some tremendously beautiful acts of kindness, mercy, and love. My desire would be to see only these! Truth be told, what I experience in the natural is resultant of things unseen, both good and evil, and there is much that is dark. This is where the battle is in full effect.
How you battle in these engagements determines the victory or the loss of hope, of peace, of joy! We will not be out of the fight until our last breath, so we must prepare for battle! In Ephesians 6, the Apostle Paul tells us to be strong in the Lord and prepare for the battle by putting on the full armor of God!
Paul notes in verse 12-13, "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against rulers, against, the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground...."
PREPARE FOR BATTLE! Hope to see you in worship this Sunday of the one who is stronger than the enemy of your soul!
