This week, we will focus on the powerful effects of God delivering us from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of Christ.
Please take a few minutes to read through this week's text and answer the questions as we prepare our minds for worship.
"And so, from the day we heard of your faith, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and with spiritual understanding, 10 so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; 11 being strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for all endurance and patience 12 with joy giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the Saints in light. 13 He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins."
