Making The Right Choices Through DVD

My Papa (Professor Basil Brown) gave us a DVD in his sermon today in CCBC's connect worship, which is very inspiring. Below is a summary of it.

Making The Right Choices (Matthew 4:1-11)

D - Decision needed
  • Jesus facing his mission: food; a sign from heaven; world dominion; short cuts to glory
  • Our challanges and decision: Compulsion of colleagues; inward pressures; demands of “love”

V - Vigilance required

  • Jesus knew the presence and power of Satan
  • Our struggle is not with flesh and blood (Eph 6).
  • The devil is the prince of this age, eager to trap you.

D - Direction accepted

  • Choice is directed by what we want to achieve.
  • Jesus is directed by God’s will, and so must we.
  • His Will is found in the Scripture.
  • Our weapon against Satan is the Word of the Spirit – the Word of God.
  • How well do you know and use Scripture?
