So many churches are full of carnality. High profile “Christians” are leaving the faith, including Josh Harris, author of “I Kissed Dating Goodbye” and Marty Solomon, a well-known seasoned worship leader.
We write books and sing pretty songs but are we really surrendering all to Jesus? Instead, we expect Jesus to surrender all to us. It’s all about me.
So, how do we really walk the walk? We’ve got to bone up, get into the weight room, and up our ante. The Bible tells us there are things beyond what we can imagine coming. We’ve got to bench press spiritually. This includes resisting the devil so he will flee.
We are in a war. Our warfare is to come AGAINST the devil’s schemes, authorities, spiritual forces and powers of this dark world. We not only need to rebuke Satan, we need to resist him. And don’t forget the most important part. Draw near to the Lord and He will draw near to us.
We are called to become a beacon of hope right where we are. Are we ready?
