A MESSAGE FROM THE PASTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS

James 4:7 says ?Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.? Let?s admit it. Most of us would like for spiritual growth to be easy. We want our ability to withstand temptation to require little effort. We want the Holy Spirit to do the work and God to protect us from too much stress and strain. Thankfully, God does empower us through his Holy Spirit. However, he does remind us that for the Spirit to work powerfully in our lives, we must intentionally submit our wills to God and we must resist the devil. If we will put up a fight against him and his temptations, he will flee from us. Let?s do our part, trusting that God will more than uphold his promises!
