Bible Study

We invite you to spend time examining the following Scriptures that shaped this sermon:

Sermon Outline

  • The Spiritual Reality
  • The Cultural Confusion
  • The Kingdom Power


  • How much do you seriously consider the reality of evil personified? Do you tend to think of a cartoon image with red horns and a pitchfork or do you find yourself thinking about evil like this equal and opposite force against God? (Both are very problematic and not Biblical.)
  • There were two words of caution given at the end of the sermon. Don’t fixate and don’t ignore the reality of an an enemy.  Which side of that do you tend to fall? What is the bigger temptation and how can you balance that thought process out?
  • Let Jesus be present to you in and through his written word. We have a SAPC reading plan we’ll be following this year and would invite you to join us as we read God’s word together. Pick up a copy on Sunday or download it here.
  • Because of this sermon, how has your life changed, matured, or challenged?
  • Who will you tell and what because of what you just heard?
  • How would you explain this to a small child?

The outline and application questions are intended for your further reflection and action upon the weekend message. They are also designed to facilitate discussion and accountability within your Life Group community.
