It was a special morning in a couple of different ways at the Sunshine Rescue Mission. The Leadership Lesson was about protecting our bodies through Biblical discipline.
It was a cool lesson and you can read the notes we've posted below. There were about 25 men in attendance and each one received a copy of Ken Metzgers Book - "The Potter's Perfect Piece."
Ken is an overcomer and a great example of resilience. He never gives up in spite of numerous adversities that have come his way. Many guys want to quit when life gets hard, Ken's story is an inspiration for everyone.
Today's lesson was entitled :Satan Wants Your Body." Here is the outline for the teaching. Please drop us an email with any questions or comments.
Thanks for your time. Go do something nice for somebody.
Jesus loves you and so do we.
SATAN WANTS YOUR BODY
- Testing Ground
- What you allow to enter your temple will make up your temple.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 AMPC
- Your body is a tool to create good works and enlarge God’s territory.
Romans 6:12-14 TPT
- The grace and love of Christ is a treasure given to you by the father to invest in others so they may have treasure as well.
2 Corinthians 4:7-8 ICB
- God will test your devotion before he gives you a promotion. Satan likes to test your patience.
James 1:12 AMPC
“You know that in a race all the runners run. But only one gets the prize. So run like that. Run to win! All those who compete in the games use strict training. They do this so that they can win a crown. That crown is an earthly thing that lasts only a short time. But our crown will continue forever. So I do not run without a goal. I fight like a boxer who is hitting something—not just the air. It is my own body that I hit. I make it my slave. I do this so that I myself will not be rejected after I have preached to others.”
1 Corinthians 9:24-27 ICB
“Therefore I always exercise and discipline myself [mortifying my body, deadening my carnal affections, bodily appetites, and worldly desires, endeavoring in all respects] to have a clear (unshaken, blameless) conscience, void of offense toward God and toward men.”
Acts 24:16 AMPC
“O Timothy, guard and keep the deposit entrusted [to you]! Turn away from the irreverent babble and godless chatter, with the vain and empty and worldly phrases, and the subtleties and the contradictions in what is falsely called knowledge and spiritual illumination.”
1 Timothy 6:20 AMPC
“These spiritual investments will provide a beautiful foundation for their lives and secure for them a great future, as they lay their hands upon the meaning of true life. So, my son Timothy, don’t forget all that has been deposited within you. Escape from the empty echoes of men and the perversion of twisted reasoning. For those who claim to possess this so-called knowledge have already wandered from the true faith. May God’s grace empower you always! Love in Christ, Paul”
1 Timothy 6:19-21 TPT
