This weekend Matt and I had the honor of being in Boston, Massachusetts with Pastor Tyler and Crystal Tullos at Story Heights Church. They planted two years ago and are doing awesome things for God in Boston! While we were there we hosted a Roundtable for about 25 pastors, spoke at their Kings and Priests Conference and at their Sunday morning services. While we were gone, Chris Pipes, our Minister of Connect Groups spoke an awesome word on the power of our thoughts called “It’s the Thought that Counts”.
If you missed this weekend’s message, you can see it here. If you weren’t able to join us this weekend and would like to give your regular tithe and offering or your end of year giving, you can give online by clicking here. God wants to build walls of protection around our minds. This “fortress” around our minds is four-sided.
Here are the 4 “WALLS” that will build this fortress.
1. THE WALL OF PRAISE
Philippians 4:4 says, “Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.” (NIV)
2. THE WALL OF PATIENCE
Philippians 4:5 says, “Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.” (NIV)
3. THE WALL OF PEACE
Philippians 4:6-7 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (NIV)
4. THE WALL OF PURITY
Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” (NIV)
