Whatever Our Cause…


Christians, whatever our cause, whatever we fight against (and we must fight against many things), it is good to remember the primary focus of our battle:

“For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.”

~ Ephesians 6:12, NLT

In the realm of earthly politics and power, we will never win the battles using those weapons alone. These weapons belong to the world system.

The majority of people we may be fighting against are not our enemies. They are not beyond God’s redemptive power. Consider the Apostle Paul, once himself an enemy of the Church, yet later a defender of the faith who penned much of the New Testament, including the words above found in Ephesians.

We are fighting a battle for the hearts of men and women in our generation, not a battle for power in this world. And although the world may believe they are winning, and that they have full control, our God rules and reigns! He has full control, He has already won, and He alone will display that victory in the end!
