Victory that Overcomes the World

For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. – 1 John 5:4 

Sports teams are victorious by having a good game plan and being able to execute that game plan. In the same way, the church is God’s plan for victory over hell. As brought out in the post “Orderly Worship”, each member of the worship team should carry out their role in a fitting and orderly way to help transform people into the likeness of Jesus Christ.

We live in a changing world and have to seek ways to keep a balance between respect for Christian heritage and innovations related to the contemporary generation. For many years now, the church I worship at has seen tremendous growth in a contemporary worship service. The seating is filled to capacity in the contemporary service but we have been struggling to fill the seats at the traditional service. We are currently introducing a service which is a mixture of traditional service and contemporary service.

No matter what the type of worship service executed, the main emphasis should be to win souls for Christ. Take inspiration from today’s song Give You Glory by Jeremy Camp.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
