The past few weeks have been an adventure as the Thursday morning Bible study has been tackling the issues that surround overcoming and conquering the giants that people face in life. Louie Giglio, well known Pastor and speaker, has been taking us on an odyssey of courage reminding us that, even though we may be facing giants that want to destroy us, they must fall to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. The last couple of episodes we faced down giants of “fear” and “rejection.” We are looking forward to facing down more giants in upcoming Thursday morning studies. The office was packed this last study with 9 in attendance. But we have room for many more so if you have an open hour, join us every Thursday at 10:00am in the church office.


This study surrounds the Biblical account of David and Goliath and how this young faithful shepherd boy faced down and defeated the mighty giant Goliath. In the same way, we can face down giants also, but Louie puts a twist on who David really is. As the study points out, we are not David. it is Jesus Christ who is David, our champion. We do not become victorious by being David. We overcome by relying on our David—Jesus Christ!!

The Word tells us in Romans 8:35-37 says, 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” We are conquerors through Him! The Lord is David who has defeated Goliath and by relying on Christ and His shed blood, we become victorious over the giants that would want to take us down. As the Apostle John said in 1 John 5:4-5 – for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.

Be blessed even more!
