Stand Against the Powers

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Ephesians 6:12

I wanted to finish out this series with Pastor @richvillodas and everyone at @nlfnyc . I was blessed by this message because of the refocusing of the battle we are here to wage. Our allegiance isn’t to a political person or party; our allegiance is to Christ as He wages the battle against the evil one. The disconnection and the violence we see is from us fighting the wrong enemy. I wrote so many notes for this one and tried to distill it down but once again I’m done in by my own enemy: long sentences. 😅

Personally; I pray we are known by the love that Jesus commands us to be known by. This is a great message, if you have the time I highly recommend it!

God, Politics, and the Church

“If any christian fits neatly into a political party then they don’t fit neatly into the Kingdom of God. The Kingdom of God trancends all political parties.” 😳

I started following Pastor @richvillodason twitter and was really impacted by his insight and the love that comes through his words. I decided to catch a sermon and it was so challenging I had to sketch it out. There were so many points and quotes that I just couldn’t fit in here. The best part was his conversion of 1 Cor 1:13 -> “Is Christ divided? Was Trump crucified for you? Were you baptized in the name of Biden?” Whoa.

I tried to fit what I could here but I highly recommend heading over over to @nlfnyc in Queens, NY. Wow…what a message.
