Ephesians 6:13

 
Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Ephesians 6:13

I'm sure you are not ignorant to the evil that exists in our world today. I can't watch the news for more than five minutes until I'm disgusted and have to turn it off. Even the perceived good the world tries to promote such as tolerance, peace, and unity is all seeped in strong opposition to biblical truth. We certainly live in evil days, yet somehow instead of standing to fight, we sit back and watch. Sometimes we even participate or engage in the evil as it feeds our fleshly desires.

The enemy goes to great lengths to deceive and blind us so that we fall into his snares. But we must stand in strong opposition to our enemy. We must not sit back and let evil invade our own lives and the lives of others. In order to do this, we must put on the whole armor of God, standing in the grace and strength of our Lord Jesus Christ. We must be prepared for the battle of our lives and fight also for the lives of others.

This is no easy battle. It is arduous, it will cause pain, it will lead to suffering, but as we stand firm in the battle, it will lead to life. It will lead to peace and joy. It will lead to souls won for Christ. It will lead to rewards that far surpass any temporary pleasure you will gain from sin or sitting back trying to avoid the battle altogether.
