Satan absolutely loves for us to think about his demons as scary and spooky. He wants us to be freaked out and creeped out by them, because then our thinking is off of their true purpose: evil and sinfulness. In this important message, you’ll hear more about where demons came from, what they are like, what they do, what they have to do with us, and how we can overpower them. Definitely give this a look, a study, and a watch. Its a message every Christian needs to know!

I close friend told me a story once where he was playing golf with an unbeliever on a Sunday evening since his church had canceled the worship service for that night.  He simply remarked to his friend on the course, “It just doesn’t feel like Sunday right now to me.”  His unbelieving friend turned his head and replied back, “Why, because you don’t have to go to church tonight?”  Is that the way we are tempted to think about the church?  Is it a place that we have to go?  It is a just requirement in our life?  Should it be a people rather than a place?
