So many churches are full of carnality. High profile â€œChristiansâ€ are leaving the faith, including Josh Harris, author of â€œI Kissed Dating Goodbyeâ€ 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. Itâ€™s all about me.
So, how do we really walk the walk? Weâ€™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. Weâ€™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 devilâ€™s schemes, authorities, spiritual forces and powers of this dark world. We not only need to rebuke Satan, we need to resist him. And donâ€™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?
