The Shield of Faith (162)

June 06, 2023

In Episode 162, we revisit another special sermon I preached last January of this year where we talked about Christian incomplete and the shield of faith. Faith, in its essence, is about trust, belief, and confidence - not just in a higher power, but also in ourselves and the journey we're on.

Like a shield in battle, faith can help us deflect the arrows of despair and defeat. It fuels resilience, cultivates strength, and inspires us to rise above obstacles. So, ready to lift up your shield of faith today? Remember, you're stronger than you think, and with faith, nothing is impossible. 

Tune in now, and let’s go bigger, better, and deeper!
