Ephesians 6:10, Proverbs 13:10, 1 Corinthians 1:11, Joshua 22
- Militancy – let it be according to knowledge and wisdom.
- If you’re going to be militant to win, you have to be strong in Christ.
- To the world it looked as if Christ lost, but He was humble.
- A good soldier in Christ begins with humility.
- Pride leads to contention, you see a lot of that right now in this nation with all the arguing over the national anthem. Do you kneel, stand, place your hand on your heart, there is much pride on both sides and hence a lot of contention.
- Pride won’t allow you to confront the other side because we might find offense in it or find out we’re wrong.
- Compassion leads to understanding and not contention.
- What you see in America today is how ugly the pride in people is and how ugly it looks when it comes out.
- On the day of the last supper Jesus knew He was to die and He did 2 amazing things:
- He sang a hymn of declaration against the enemy declaring a victory.
- Jesus washed the feet of the disciples, in spite of what He was facing.
- Get shed of all pride if you want to go into battle and win.
- Please is not a military word – you don’t ever hear military leaders saying “Please”.
- Humility is a willingness to tell the truth.
- As a Christian, your citizenship is the Kingdom of God and you’re an ambassador of Jesus Christ. That should be sobering.
- If you care about people and love them, you’re willing to find out why people think what they do.
- A militant person is moved by the Spirit of God, not by the situation.
- We wrestle not against Donald Trump, Barrack Obama, etc.
- You will learn a lot more from listening to what others think, than from telling people what you think.
- You express humility by your obedience to the Lord and doing that which He would have you do.
- When they heard, they found peace in Christ.
- We need people to rightly divide the battle.
