A Song About the War of Words
Pastor Phill preaches this Sunday (December 18, 2022) on Psalm 64. The 64th sermon in the Psalm series, the psalm teaches us how we are in a war, that the greatest weapon we have is our words, and the way God wins is surprising. The Word of God, Jesus Christ claims victory by dying! God in the flesh experiences death, and three days later, rises from the dead, conquering sin and death. The Scripture readings from our worship service were from Genesis 3:1-13, 15, Matthew 2:13-18, Revelation 22:20-21. .
