In the first of 3 messages in this series entitled, "In the Crosshairs" Pastor Ron reminds believers that each of us acquired three enemies the moment he became a Christian: The World, the Flesh, and the Devil. This message deals with the first enemy, the World, and describes how the world attempts to destroy our witness and our effectiveness for the Kingdom, as well as how to avoid falling to its temptations.

God's children are to love as our Father Loves
Being able to understand God's Word requires a correct understanding of who God is. Contrary to what the Pharisees and Religious leaders of Jesus' day believed and taught, God is not a cosmic policeman looking to punish every offense at the first opportunity. God is a Father, and His Law must be understood and interpreted in that light. In this sermon, Pastor Josh shows that in order to love we must be sons of our Father, but in order to be sons of our Father, we must first understand who our Father is.
Isaac learned from his father, Abraham, that it was necessary and good to wait upon the Lord and rest in him. Isaac was able and obligated to do this because God provides for his children all they need for life and godliness. Such waiting and resting was and still is energized by knowing particular truths connected to such waiting and resting. While God's covenant blessing is a sure and certain reality for God's people, there are particular blessings joined to it that can disappear only to reappear. Still, in the midst of the changing presence of some blessings, God's presence through his word endures with his redeemed covenant people, and with God is the power to live obediently to him. Such power for obedience is what enables God's redeemed children to deal with God's enemies that are not only outside God's covenant community, but also inside it. In learning these lessons we are enabled to wait upon the Lord and rest in him.
