Church Unscripted | Episode 20
In a world that often pulls us apart, finding a sense of community and faith becomes crucial. In the vibrant city of Fort Wayne, homes can play a central role in fostering those connections. As believers, we are called to have hard conversations and build strong relationships within our families and communities. These conversations can create opportunities for growth, understanding, and a deeper connection with Jesus.
"Choosing quiet calculation over righteous rage allows us to apply Sunday's message in a way that strengthens our faith and builds a stronger community."
"Contrary to popular belief, God does have emotions. We, being made in His image, reflect that. But it's important to remember that His love for us as a loving Father far outweighs anything else."
"Shame can be a significant indicator of spiritual regression. It can attack through negative thoughts and self-condemnation. But remember, if Jesus has pardoned you, no one can accuse or convict you."
"Discipline and training are required to win the battle in your mind against Satan's attacks. Put on the full armor of God, as mentioned in Ephesians, for complete protection."
