Open Door: Watch for the Stalking Lion

Founded on a Rock

Saturday, November 11, 2017
Like a trained soldier, the Apostle Paul warns us to "be sober, be vigilant." I am thankful for the soldiers who have sacrificed and stood on watch for our nation's defense–Thank you, veterans, for by you we are reminded of the importance of constant watchfulness for the enemy. In fact, there's an enemy that's close to home–he is circling, watching, searching, and even roaring as he waits for the moment to pounce and devour! This enemy is the Devil, and he is very real. We may not always see the enemy, but we can sense the effects of his evil presence around us. Satan's presence is destructive and death-filled. This would be fearful, except we find help in knowing through God's Word that we can resist the Devil and remain steadfast–even in the presence of the greatest wickedness! Sunday morning at 10:30, we will arm ourselves with this great truth found in 1 Peter 5!

I am thankful for the new folks I've been able to connect with that came last Sunday on Friend Day! Let's continue to touch the world one life at a time as we stay greatly committed to the Great Commission of sharing the life-change truth of Christ's love with those who are still ensnared by sin. Our God IS greater!

In Christ,

Pastor Dennis M. Schaffer
