It is very easy to forget who we are. There are so many voices and influences in our lives that attempt to tell us who to become. For most of us our past mistakes try to convince us that we will never change. In this series, we will look to the letter of Ephesians, and Paul’s writings about the nature of God and the identity that Jesus makes possible for us today.

November 8th: Deep and Wide

Life here on earth is a wrestling match – a battle for the hearts and minds of people. Scripture reminds us, though, that this is not a battle fought against other people. Rather, we must put on the full armor of God and stay alert through prayer in order to STAND FIRM in the face of the spiritual forces that are constantly trying to pull us away from who we are in Christ.
