Ephesians 6:10-22 “Onward Christian Soldiers, marching as to war, with the cross of Jesus, going on before”. As Christians we are soldiers in a battle against spiritual forces of evil. But how do we fight and engage in spiritual warfare?
2 Timothy 4:1-18 Fast-forward in your mind. You’ve just been told you’ve got a few months to live. You’re lying in bed in the hospice.

Will you look forward with fear, or with just a vague hope of some hereafter, or with certain expectation of an eternal future with God?
Joshua 1 An Ironman is a long-distance triathlon – 3.86km swim in open water, followed by 180km on a bike, and then a marathon to finish off. It’s not for the fainthearted.
