Being Strong in God, Part 2

July 30, 2021

Have you ever had one of those nightmares where you show up to a presentation or an interview, and you’re not wearing your pants? It’s terrifying, and we would never do it in real life. But often, we forget to get dressed spiritually. Pastor J.D. explains how we can put on the armor of God as he concludes our series called Mystery and Clarity.

In this exclusive Summit Life resource, we will hold up the mystery and majesty of the gospel, to show us that even though God loves to blow our minds, he also loves for us to see him, to know him, and to feel his presence in our lives. Because if there is one thing we all need, it is greater clarity into the mystery of God’s love. Each session includes a new component: Scripture Memory, along with a commentary, study questions, personal application, and a prayer guide.

About Summit Life

We believe the gospel is a deep well of transformative grace – and we’ll never find the bottom.


We know life with Jesus extends beyond Sunday mornings. That’s why providing daily broadcasts, honest podcasts, insightful blogs, and challenging books are all part of J.D.’s ministry as a pastor – and as a believer. At the end of the day, we want you to be drawn deeper into the gospel and to fall more in love with Jesus.
