Josh did a great job talking about building and defending last night, I thought at any moment he would break out in Y.M.C.A. because he was wearing a carpenter’s belt! He began by recapping last weeks message saying that if you do something great you will experience opposition. When we think about defending we normally have thoughts about defending ourselves or others physically, but what about defending ourselves emotionally or spiritually?
We are usually good at the trowel work; the work that we do to better and build ourselves. We are not as good at the sword work; the work that we need to do to defend ourselves. Our job is to defend what we have been given. Have you ever felt discouraged, depressed, or lacking faith? Then you know that Satan is real. By listening to Josh’s sermon here, you will hear some practical ways to defend yourself and those around you.
