One for the Road – “As Things Wax Worse and Worse”

As things wax worse and worse.  And…the Bible says they will.

 

How then should the people of God respond?  Fight we must.

 

But…how?  Paul tells us: “…we do not wage war as the world does.”

 

And further…“the weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world.”

 

Yes…fight we must.  But…with weaponry that is mighty in the Spirit.  With these we demolish strongholds.

 

Of course…anger can take over.  And…it’s easy to pick up the weapons of the world – to argue…lash out…resent.

 

Instead…use weapons that are invisible – spiritual…but mighty.

 

Today…you will be tempted to pick up the weapons of the world.  But don’t.  They are totally ineffective.

 

So…as things wax worse and worse…be more and more empowered by the Spirit.
