The Armour of God – July 2019

In Ephesians 6:10-18, the apostle Paul reminds believers of the true nature of our struggle as we follow Jesus.  We are reminded that the conflict that we face in our daily walk is a spiritual one.  In this text we learn that we can live boldly and victoriously in the face of these challenges by putting on the spiritual armour that is provided for us.  As we take up each of these pieces of armour we are empowered by the all-powerful Spirit of God to be able to stand firm in our faith in Jesus Christ.

Entering the Land of Promise – Joshua 1-8

In the book of Joshua we find the account of the people of Israel finally leaving the wilderness and entering into the land of Canaan, the Promised Land.  Some may read this as a narrative of a divinely sanctioned genocidal military conquest that is best left as ancient history. We must acknowledge that the violence of the OT is distinctly at odds with the message of Jesus found in the NT.  Within this text, however, we also see an extraordinary fulfillment of divine promise to bring God’s people out from the oppression of the past into a hopeful and abundant future.  As a congregation trusting in God’s leading we hope to draw some parallels for how we can be faithful in moving into the next chapter of life and ministry here at FGMB.
