The Call to Spiritual Warfare
Imagine a soldier preparing for battle. They don’t just wake up one day and head to the front lines; they undergo rigorous training, learn strategies, and equip themselves with the proper armor. They understand that the battle ahead is real and they need to be ready.
Similarly, as followers of Christ, we are called into a spiritual battle. Ephesians 6:12 reminds us that our struggle isn’t against flesh and blood, but against spiritual forces of evil. This battle isn’t one we can see with our eyes, but it’s just as real, and it requires us to be spiritually prepared.
Thankfully, we’re not sent into this battle unarmed. God has provided us with His armor—truth, righteousness, readiness from the gospel of peace, faith, salvation, and the word of God. With these, we can stand firm against the enemy’s attacks and advance God’s kingdom.
Remember, in this spiritual warfare, our victory is assured. Jesus has already won the ultimate victory on the cross. Our role is to stand firm in His victory, resist the enemy, and carry out our divine assignments with courage and faith.
So, let’s embrace the call to spiritual warfare. Let’s equip ourselves with God’s armor, engage in battle with prayer and faith, and stand firm in the victory Christ has won for us.
