Dear Cornerstone Family,

We may not be aware of it, but we are in a spiritual battle for our families. This weekend we will begin a new series called: Battle For The Family. I am so excited to see how God is going to use this series to bless and restore our families. This may be the most important series I have taught in years.

The enemy wants to destroy our families and God wants to save our families. The next generation is hanging in the balance. In Ephesians 6:12 (NLT2) the Apostle Paul said, “For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.”

We must remember our family is not the enemy. We must battle against the devil, our culture and our flesh for the future of our families.

We all lose our temper at times, but are we aware that harboring ill feelings can give the devil an opportunity to harm our families? In Ephesians 4:26-27 (NIV) Paul warns us, “In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry and Do not give the devil a foothold.”

Join us this Sunday as we begin to study how we can protect our families and have victory over the devil, our culture and our flesh.

Following Jesus,

Pastor Ed Turley
Cornerstone Church of Poway
