Theme: Destroying the works of the enemy Matt 15:13

Focus: Taking away all things that will cause shame and non-productivity


Why do we need to destroy the works of the enemy? Matt 15:13

We need to destroy the works of the enemy because they do not allow man to attain his spiritual and economic goals. The works are impediments to man’s break through. As every athlete aims to reach the finish line and at a stipulated time too, so do a Christian aims at attaining the heavenly inheritance which is our Target (the final end)

# Becoming baptised & Understanding spiritual effects of baptism
(CCC 1279 The fruit of Baptism, or baptismal grace, is a rich reality that includes forgiveness of original sin and all personal sins, birth into the new life by which man becomes an adoptive son of the Father, a member of Christ and a temple of the Holy Spirit. By this very fact the person baptized is incorporated into the Church, the Body of Christ, and made a sharer in the priesthood of Christ)
