3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, 6 and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled. (2 Corinthians 10:3-6)
Christians are at war, and we’d better realize it! The battle is raging for the minds and souls of every person on earth, including ours. Guns, tanks, missiles and bombs will not defeat our enemy. We wage a spiritual warfare, “the good fight of faith” (1 Tim. 6:12). Our weapons are spiritual in nature and “mighty in God” to break down the bulwarks of unbelief, human wisdom and pride. The “sword of the Spirit”, the word of God, renders error impotent. Truth vanquishes every foe and as it leads us to obedience and victory in Christ. The question is not whether Christ and His army will prevail. The question is, in which army are you a soldier; Satan’s or the Lord’s?
