When it comes to fighting the spiritual warfare, there are many reasons why believers suffer defeat. The most common, and one that reveals we are living in the Last Days, is the tendency to exalt self above anything or anyone else.  Pastor Jeff Johnson points out that though pursuing the self is given inordinate priority, it will end in living a life of spiritual defeat and discouragement. It isn’t too far from believers giving up on the Lord thinking that Christianity is of no effect. With key insights into the tactics and of our spiritual foe, here is Pastor Jeff in Ephesians for today’s encouragement in Sound Doctrine.

When anyone goes to war, the only strategy that matters is one that will increase the chances of winning. Generals do not pin medals on their chest for fiscal frugality in war. Likewise the straightest path to victory is what Jesus offers to the believer who takes their enlistment in this spiritual battle seriously. That’s why Pastor Jeff Johnson helps us to see the role of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer in warfare of the unseen realm. With age-abiding principles of spiritual victory, here is Pastor Jeff Johnson in Ephesians 6 with our battle plan from today’s edition of Sound Doctrine.

The Bible says that we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. And while we may experience skirmishes and setbacks once in a while, Jesus Christ has promised us victory if we keep our eyes on Him.

You’ll definitely want to take notes to create your own manual of arms as a Christian soldier. With more on that, let’s join Pastor Jeff in Ephesians 6 for today’s encouragement in Sound Doctrine

When the believer allows the enemy to take hold of any area of their life, there is an opportunity for him to influence from that position. Whether sin, believing lies, or apathy, our adversary the devil will use any means necessary to gain an advantage over the believer. With timeless Biblical instruction and clear practical steps to take in response, Pastor Jeff Johnson shows us how to know when the spiritual warfare is ramping up its intensity and the weapons God has given to us in response. With more on that, let’s continue our study in Ephesians 6 titled, “Spiritual Warfare Part1”

During World War 1 some of the most iconic images in American history were produced. Most notable was the popular Uncle Sam Poster pointing a finger to the passerby saying, “I Want You.” In a similar way we’re in a war, and God is calling Christians to enlist.

That brings us to Ephesians chapter 6 where Pastor Jeff helps us to see what God has given us for the warfare that is all around us. And in showing us our weapons, helps us to be aware and prepared.

As we spent a good majority of our time in speaking to the responsibility of Christian employees and the proper behavior to their employers, God also has a standard for Christian employers. Pastor Jeff Johnson reminds the believing employers that they also have a responsibility to the Lord for how they exercise their authority over others. He reminds us that those who are threatened can respond with resentment and anger. And that is why Jesus is our example. Being both Lord and Servant He provides a perfect balance to follow. With more on that let’s finish our series titled, “Employee/Employer Relationships Part 2” with Pastor Jeff in Ephesians 6.

Humble yourself under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time. And while it’s a promise that is not as popular as other Biblical promises, it may be very crucial to turning the tide in that work relationship. And while you may be praying that the Lord will change this heart or that heart, it may be that the heart He wants to change the most, is yours. In today’s edition of Sound Doctrine Pastor Jeff once again reminds us how humility is the key to improving work relationships as we delve once again into this powerful set of verses in Ephesians 6. So with more on that, let’s join Pastor Jeff in our study titled, “Employee/Employer Relationships - Part 2.”

When a man’s ways please the Lord, He will make even his enemies to be at peace with him. Whether it is contention with an unreasonable employer or challenging co-workers, serving God in the workplace has its own set of challenges. That’s why on today’s edition of Sound Doctrine Pastor Jeff Johnson reveals how no matter what kind of an employer you face, God is bigger still and gracious. And by surrendering yourself to the Lord, He is able to do through you what you alone can’t do. With more on that, let’s join Pastor Jeff in Ephesians 6 for today’s encouragement in Sound Doctrine.
