It's a Battle (Ephesians 6:10-12)

Today's scriptures: Ephesians 6:10-12

We’re in a battle, folks. A big old, ugly, bloody battle. And it’s not in a foreign land. It’s right on your street. At your work. At your school. Maybe even in your own home.

We have a pretty powerful enemy. And he doesn’t fight fair. Sometimes he sneaks in under the cover of darkness. Sometimes he launches a full-frontal attack. He and his minions are wandering the world, scheming and planning. Trying to take out as many as they can. Sometimes it seems like they’re winning. And perhaps they are ... a battle or two, at least.

But those of us who follow Christ know Who wins the war. Jesus Himself said, “
In the world you may have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). Not I will, but I have. He’s already won the war! And we’re on the winning side!

What we have to do is be prepared for the battle, and tomorrow, we’ll see how to arm ourselves.
