It’s Fourth of July Weekend at Saddleback!
Dear Saddleback Family,
America’s Independence Day always reminds us that there are some things worth fighting for… and even worth dying for. Jesus demonstrated that truth. As saved people, we celebrate two kinds of freedoms: first, the freedom we have because of Jesus’ death & resurrection for us, and second, the freedom we have because of brave Americans who fought to get it and keep it.
I read today that by the time our troops are completely withdrawn from Afghanistan, we will have been fighting there for 13 years – making it America’s longest war. But you are involved in an even longer war. It is a battle that will last your lifetime — and you need to know how to fight it. That war is the daily attacks on you and your family carried out by unseen spiritual forces – you own fallen nature, the world’s corrupt value system, and the minions of Satan.
That’s why I’m dedicating this summer to teach you about “THE INVISIBLE WAR” – how to fight and overcome the spiritual forces that discourage, distract, detour, and attempt to destroy God’s purpose for your life. This weekend, I’m teaching Part 2:“Winning the Battle INSIDE You!”I am so eager to help you, and I know you’ll be blessed by this encouraging message. If you missed last week’s Part 1: “When You Feel Like Giving Up,” I urge you to pick up a CD of the message and listen to it, or watch it here.
The Fourth of July weekend at Saddleback is always a special service. BRING A FRIEND THIS WEEKEND!
I love you!
