Don’t Be Punk’d @ Church
By brian mills

1 Peter 5:8-9 “Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion seeking someone to devour. Resist him, stand firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.”

His Strategy – Get you to fail at your purpose.

James 4:7 – Submit yourselves to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you.
I John 4:4 – Greater is He that is in you than he who has overcome the world.

Evangelism
Satan wants you to believe that because you go to church, you are a Christian. But I want to tell you Just b/c you go to taco bell does not make you a bean burrito

Satan want you to believe that somebody else will do the evangelism part… because we are not gifted for that. Read the Great Commission again….I think it was directed to everybody…
Children between the ages of 5 and 13 have a 32% probability of accepting Jesus Christ as their savior.
The probability of accepting Christ drops to 4% for those who are between the ages of 14 and 18.
Those older than 18 have a 6% probability of accepting Jesus Christ as their savior.
And with those stats only 58% of born again Christians claim they have shared their faith with a non-Christian during the past year.

Fellowship
Home Groups is a great place for fellowship

Discipleship
Sunday AM in the Fireside Room

Ministry

Worship / Prayer
Satan wants you to think church happens in a building

I love the Taco Bell analogy. Two thumbs and a big toe up on that one.

Brian Mills said...

for those that do not know. the analogy is "going to church does not make you a christian any more than going to taco bell makes you a bean burito or going to mcdonalds makes you a big mac"
