TEXT: GENESIS 1: 24 - 30
INTRODUCTION: In the past six weeks, we have been studying the series on what we are expected to reign over and the means of achieving it. Our aim today is to summarise all the past topics for ease of reference and application.
The Devil's main purpose is to steal the word of God from our hearts. Thanks be to God for the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives whose purpose is to remind us of all that Christ (the Word) has taught us.
We are nevertheless expected to develop strategies that will assist us in the remembrance of the word of God. We must be conscious and sensitive to the diversionary tactics of the enemy in order not to be forgetful hearers but rather doers.
As we behold these words, may the Holy Spirit increase us in wisdom and revelation. May we continue to fulfill the purpose of God in our lives to reign as kings and priests in Jesus Name. Amen.
