Our Own Kind of Problems

Part of a Sermon by Pastor John, February 18, 2012

After God touched me and gave me a sober, godly mind, I began to notice how that saints who walk in the Spirit were spared a lot of the troubles that the world deals with.  God gives His obedient children a different set of problems to overcome, a different set of trials for their faith.  On the other hand, I also learned that if the minds of God’s people wander from the things of God, they start participating in those troubles of the world.  We want to walk in the Spirit and live above the world’s kind of problems, the way Christ Jesus did.  The world fights over one political or social cause after another, the way the ocean pounds vainly against the shore, changing nothing but making a constant roar.  The warfare of the saints is to overcome evil with good, and through God, the weapons of their warfare are mighty (2Cor. 10:4).
