WEEK 3

Worship Breaks Strongholds

Contact us at contact@iwantgrace.org with any questions, comments, or testimonies!

MESSAGE SUMMARY

January 31, 2021

On January 24, Pastor Steve taught about the need to fall in love with Jesus. The only way we will leave everything for Jesus is to love Him. The only way to really love Him is to know Him or "Behold Him." We are called to seek Him and to gaze into His face of grace by spending time in His Word.  

On January 31, Pastor Steve began teaching on the reality that authentic, spirit-filled worship breaks strongholds. When God is worshiped in Spirit and truth, it releases God's presence and light and changes everything!  Environments—

change, people experience peace, and darkness flees!  We need to learn to cultivate this kind of worship because enemies flee when God arises! (See Psalm 68:1) We need our lives, homes, and families filled with the presence of God more than ever!  God desires to break our strongholds and live in the glory of His peace and presence!

  2. If God cast satan out of His presence in heaven, do you think part of God’s will on the earth is to remove darkness from the place God desires to put His Kingdom? (See Luke 10:17-20)

  3. What is the connection between worship and the light of God? (See 1 John 1:5)

  4. What is the effect of true worship on darkness? What does the light of God do to darkness?

  5. Read and meditate upon 2 Corinthians 10:3-5. Discuss what these verses mean.  What is the connection between worship and the bringing of every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ?
