It is time to stop playing defense and go on the offense.
There is Power in the Word of God.
Defense doesn’t win battles, it will only maintain a position. Only offense wins the battle.
Ephesians 6 verse 12 “For our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world powers of darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens.”
We need to throw ourselves into the battle. A half hearted approach is never going to be effective. If we stay defensive for too long, the enemy and even complacency will overwhelm us.
Our Lord and Our friend has equipped us for service. Ephesians 6 verse 10 and 11 “Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and His vast strength”.”Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the tactics of the devil.”
Romans 8 verse 37 “We are more than conquerors through Him that loves us.”
As well as our ministry card that says “If it matters to you< it matters to Him.” I like to carry round another card that says “Created to Win.” Romans 8 verse 37.
Our Lord and Our Friend means for us to win. He has already won the overall victory on the cross. Now He wants us to have that victory as our experience. One of the offensive weapons in our armor is The Sword of The Spirit. which is the Word of God.
It is time for all of us, to embrace God’s word into our lives. The Power of The Word of God works. Yes really works!!! Used by our faith in action the powers of darkness will tremble.
Faith is practical because it should live in our heart and in our hands.
If faith without works is dead, the opposite must also be true Faith that manifest itself in Godly action is alive.
Faith in action transforms lives go on the offensive today.
