In a world filled with so much information, and so many doctrines and ideas about the Bible, it falls on God’s people to make sure that they are equipped for defending the truth. We must earnestly contend for the faith.
Perhaps no day on the Jewish calendar was more important that the Day of Atonement. It was a day which the book of Leviticus centers around. And yet, it was not sufficient to fully take care of mankind’s sin problem. That’s why Christ came, to be our sacrifice. The Lamb of God came to take away the sin of the world.
No matter where he was in his life, Paul was always one who demonstrated a willingness to do the will of God (even when he was mistaken about what God’s will really was). Paul is a great example of us to always strive, in everything we do, to do what we know to be right.
Christians are fighting a battle with the evil. We know our adversary the devil is a dangerous foe, and we have to be ready to face him. We have to put on our armor and be prepared for the fight.
In the wake of senseless violence that continues to plague our world, it is important for Christians to step back, to step away from the political discussions for a moment, and consider what the Bible says on the subject of violence.

Submission is a guiding principle in a Christian’s life. We are to submit to God. We are commanded to submit to government. Ane we must also submit to one another. Sometimes there is a specific order that God has ordained for relationships in our lives, such as in our families or in business. Paul deals with these things in our text tonight.
