Spiritual warfare is the opposition that we encounter from the enemy that attacks our intimacy and authority in the Lord, and, as Kanita will share, it’s not new, but it is nuanced.

Today, Kanita is helping us to explore the obstacles we encounter to worshipping the Lord in Spirit and in Truth, and it is my prayer that you feel a renewed desire to grow more intimate with Him as we listen in.

Today, we’re reflecting on John 1:1-13 CSB

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. All things were created through him, and apart from him not one thing was created that has been created. In him was life, and that life was the light of men. That light shines in the darkness, and yet the darkness did not overcome it.

There was a man sent from God whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify about the light, so that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but he came to testify about the light. The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world.

He was in the world, and the world was created through him, and yet the world did not recognize him. He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. But to all who did receive him, he gave them the right to be children of God, to those who believe in his name, who were born, not of natural descent, or of the will of the flesh, or of the will of man, but of God.

Kanita and I Talked About:

  • Generational Obedience
  • The Fullest Interpretation of the Bible
  • Spiritual Warfare That Hinders Us From Stepping Into Our Full Calling
  • What It Looks Like to Genuinely Worship The Lord
  • The Power of Consistency and Relational Evangelism
