Stand and Fight

Episode #46: Stand and Fight

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. (Romans 8:35, 37)

The Christian life is not a life of shelter. Our salvation was not meant to keep us away from the trials of life. When we give our lives to Jesus, we throw down the gauntlet and challenge Satan. He will not sit idly by and leave us alone because we have been saved. Our salvation is an offense to him, and he will attack us to discourage us. He cannot have us so he will do whatever he can to keep us silent and out of the fight.

Do not think you can sit on the sidelines and not get in the fight. Sitting on the sidelines is exactly where Satan wants you. He would love for you to not engage in the battle. If he can’t have you, he would love for you to sit down and not stand for Jesus.   Satan relishes our apathy and indifference.

Understand that, we are assured we will have trials in our Christian life. Verse 37 says, “IN all these things we are more than conquerors.” You can’t conquer what you won’t stand against. You can’t eliminate an enemy that you won’t engage. The enemy cannot stand against us when we stand, IN Christ, against him. Will you fight? Will you put on the Armor of God today and engage in the battle? Will you stand in the face of adversity and claim victory? Will you rejoice when you are attacked considering it a privilege to share in the sufferings of Christ? Will you reject complacency and actively pursue the battle?

Let us be a people that is ready to stand and fight today! We are MORE than Conquerors! We are soldiers in the army of God!

Love Y’all! Be Blessed!
