THEME: CHRISTIAN WEAPONS
PASSAGE: 2 CORINTHIANS 10: 1-6
MEMORY VERSE: Ephesians 6:11″Put on the full armour of God so that you can take your stand against devil’s schemes.”
HYMN: MHB 821 (220.127.116.11.D.) – STAND up for Jesus.
A soldier in the warfront is expected to be well-armed with weapons in order to survive, not to be prisoner of war and also save his country.
Apostle Paul beautifully captures this point in 2 Cor. 10:4,5. He says, “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds; casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.”
These weapons have divine power to demolish strongholds. Weapons of this world may be that man or woman in whom you put your confidence, your intellectual capacity, your potentials and the like. They cannot win the battle for you, brother and sister. You don’t need a physical gun before you win but strive to have divine weapons that can demolish strongholds. You cannot find such weapon elsewhere except in Jesus. Don’t rely on your Pastor who has his/her own problem to contend with, but put your trust in God Almighty.
Paul in his epistle to the Ephesians succinctly discussed the armour of God. Ephesians 6:11 urges Christians to put on the whole armour of God to be able to stand against the wiles of the enemy. This is because we wrestle against unseen forces, powers and principalities. You’re to be strong in the Lord and never be afraid but get yourself equipped in the Lord.
Joshua, David, Daniel among others won their respective battles with divine weapons. You can conquer, too, if you make every effort to get all the Christian weapons. Behold, the strongest weapon is the Word of God. Jesus conquered with God’s Word. Don’t be empty so that the devil will not tread over you and deprive you of your rights.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to sharpen my spiritual weapons in order to effectively face the fiery darts of the enemy in Jesus’ name. Amen.
