Challenges:

Am I ignorant of Satan’s strategies?

Have I or do I allow Satan to influence my thinking?

Do any of Satan’s characteristics or behaviors appear in my life?

Does Satan have any strongholds in my life?

Am I God’s player or Satan’s pawn?

Make sure you are on the right side!

Am I helping or hindering the cause of Christ?

It comes as a surprise to some people to discover that Satan faithfully attends church services.  Through his demonic forces he is actually running some churches.  Nobody outside the church can really hinder or hurt the ministry of the local church.  That is why Satan wants to get on the inside, as he did with Ananias and Sapphira in Acts 5.  Satan will use anyone and everyone inside the church to stop her.  When unity and harmony are missing in the church we must discover who the people are that Satan is using to hinder the work and deal with them in love and firmness.

Pr. 22:10

“Cast out the scorner, and contention shall go out; yea, strife and reproach shall cease.”

Spiritual Leadership In The Home

Text: Deut. 6:1-9

I.  Husbands Are Responsible To Be The Leader In The Home (Deut 6:1-3)

IV.  The Goal Of Every Home Is To Abide In Christ’s Love (Jn 15:10)

V.  The Goal Of Every Home Is To Point To Christ (Matt 5:16)

Challenges for Dad’s & Mom’s:

Are you truly in love with the Lord and displaying that love by obedience to Him?

Are you continually growing in your faith?

Are you taking the time to consistently train and teach your children or grandchildren to love the Lord?

Does your home glorify Christ?

Is your home a testimony where others see Christ?

Leaders are not born, they are made!

A godly home is no guarantee of godly children; there are no formulas or prescriptions to rear a child who loves the Lord.  A Christian home is never defined by what the children are doing…it is defined by what the parents are becoming.
