Do Not Wage War As The World Does

“We are human, but we don’t wage war as humans do. We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments.  We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God.  We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ.”  2 Corinthians 10:3-5

Weapon # 1 is the Holy Word of God.  If we don’t know what it says, then we don’t know the truth.  If we don’t know the truth, then we will lose our battles.  Jesus’ followers commit themselves to hearing and understanding what he taught about the Kingdom of Heaven and humanity.  His apostles expanded on his teachings in such simple ways that children can understand every truth, and professing Christians all the more.

Anyone who has been enlisted into God’s ranks as a soldier (2 Timothy 2:4) must know it and understand it even more so!  If the elite soldier of the world expertly knows and understands every detail of his weapons and can use any of them with a surgeon’s precision at any time, the elite soldier of God must apply the same tenacity to learning the Word of God, our weapon in the spiritual war.

The iPocketBible New Living Translation Edition for your iPod is a diamond in the rough. The book of Proverbs is an amazing place to start.
