Pastor Russ Emanuel of Olive Grove Church Clinton, NC
In our Christian walk with God there will constantly be a tug of war between the Spirit and the flesh. The flesh desires to please the world while the Spirit desires to please God. In this message Pastor Russ explains the importance of setting boundaries for our lives. Often times if we're not careful we find ourselves like Lot in the book of Genesis, setting our sights on sin and away from God. However, because He first loved us, God sent his son Jesus to reconcile our sins. He recognized that Satan would try to destroy us using every possible distraction of the world. Pastor Russ shares with us that the word of God should be a boundary for our life, helping us establish a limit and define parameters we aren't willing to cross. Establishing these boundaries keeps us from falling victim to the schemes of Satan and keeps us within the realm of the God zone. Within this zone we find peace, love, joy, and a protection against a culture that lives by the motto "anything goes".
