Darren shows a video as part of this sermon, which you can view below (you need to watch it in context so wait until he introduces it!). He also refers to a powerpoint presentation called 'A Soldier's Values' which you can download here.
We are no longer civilians. However, many of us have signed up for a Christianity that has very little fight.
Darren uses the British army as an example of what it means to be trained for war, and finds the most incredible similarities between they way the army are trained and how Jesus has told us to live.
Has the church forgotten how to fight? Has she somehow been disarmed over the centuries? Listen as Darren gives what may very quickly become one of the most popular sermons on our website this year.
Darren speaks about how God is restoring the ability to fight to His church in these days. He speaks about how to fight the heavenly battle that each one of us is involved in.
"These are the nations the LORD left to test all those Israelites who had not experienced any of the wars in Canaan (he did this only to teach warfare to the descendants of the Israelites who had not had previous battle experience): the five rulers of the Philistines, all the Canaanites, the Sidonians, and the Hivites living in the Lebanon mountains from Mount Baal Hermon to Lebo Hamath. They were left to test the Israelites to see whether they would obey the LORD’s commands, which he had given their ancestors through Moses." - Judges 3:1-4
"He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze." - Psalm 18:34
