This week we continued our Monster/monster series with “Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde.” We talked, based on Romans chapters 6 – 8, about how there are two of us in the one of us, but it’s wrong to be two people. And so we need to kill the monster (what the Bible calls the “sinful nature”) inside of us. Romans 6 tells us that the way we kill the monster is in baptism. We’re doing baptisms this week on Sunday after the 11:35 service, and on Monday after that 7:05 service. I know of like 6 to 8 people getting baptized, and maybe you need to join them? If you’re thinking about it, let us know. If you want to learn more about baptism, listen to the “Pictures of Baptism” message I did, at the bottom of this page.
We also talked about how though you kill him in baptism, the monster will still tries to reestablish his authority in your life, and so we need to starve him, and feed the Spirit so we have His power to help us. If you missed the message, you can listen to it here.
Excited that our Cupcake Girls ministry trained a church in Portland on how to start a ministry of their own to strip clubs in that city.
