Spiritual Landmines

Tonight Brett led us through landmines to avoid. Tonight's message was very applicable and challenging for spiritual growth.

James 1:2-5
Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete lacking in nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given to him.

As we grow and mature in Christ we must be keenly aware of landmines. We should not remain where we are,but we are to progress. Spiritual growth requires wisdom. The Wisdom of God guards against the traps of the enemy.

Beware of

1. Landmine of Pride

2. Landmine of Jealousy and Envy

3. Landmine of Unforgiveness

4. Landmine of Fear

Landmines will counteract our spiritual growth and maturity.

Warning video is hard to watch. DEFINITELY NOT FOR KIDS. However, I am posting this video to add a visual to the spiritual effects of a landmine. Landmines can seem innocent in the beginning, but end up having a deadly effect.

To hear tonight's message visit Raleigh Road Baptist Church Website. I challenge you to listen to tonight's message

a. you missed church tonight

b. you struggle with any of the above landmines (which would be everybody)

c. you want to be challenged in your growth

This blog is not intended to be an in-depth recap and you will not receive the "fruit" of this message until you hear it for yourself. The message is not up right now, but should be up tomorrow (Monday).
