I won't stand by watching a sister fight against a brother, a friend hurl insults against another friend, a Christian slander another child of God + let Satan kick back laughing in TOTAL GLEE. Smiling from ear to ear. So happy we played right into his hand.
Don't be mistaken—whatever you see with your own 2 eyes? Not it. Our struggle is NOT against flesh and blood. So all the hate, injustice + division?
We know the truth. Paul makes it very clear: We're fighting against the evil rulers, authorities + mighty powers of this dark world + against spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. (Eph. 6:12)
So rise up, friends. There's a war going on + it didn't just start last week. Don't let yourself be deceived, don't turn on each other like Satan hopes + remember from where you fight: God for us, Christ in us, Holy Spirit empowering us.
Work NEEDS to be done + we MUST use our voice to do right + action is REQUIRED—NO DOUBT ABOUT IT. But let's be sure our arrows are actually pointed AT THE RIGHT TARGET + link arms as a united front AS THE BODY OF CHRIST HIMSELF + STAND FIRM against every attack. We can do it in His Name—ALONE.
But I plead with you to remember—people are NEVER the enemy + we hold the key to unity: the cross is the only way. #JesusourLivingHope
