Weapons of Warfare

The spiritual battles we face today are very real and very powerful. Satan doesn’t just try to attack us physically, but also mentally and emotionally. Wouldn’t it be great to see the devil be taken out with a rocket launcher or run over by a tank? But it’s impossible for us to fight against him using human weaponry. 

2 Corinthians 10:3-5 (NASB) says, “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not wage battle according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying arguments and all arrogance raised against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.” 

So, what are these spiritual weapons of warfare? The weapon we should be using most is the Word of God. Ephesians 6 calls it our Sword of the Spirit. Out of everything listed in this chapter, it’s the only offensive weapon. While the other pieces of armor are meant to protect us, the Word is what we’re meant to fight with. Knowing the truth of God’s Word and what He says about His children is essential to standing up against the flaming arrows that attack us daily.

Although the Word is more than enough to defeat the enemy, there are other things we can do that will make us stronger for the battle.

Prayer is our way of communicating with the Father. It’s impossible to have relationship with someone without spending time with them. The more we learn about our Savior, the stronger our foundation for warfare becomes.

Worship helps us recognize and glorify God for who He is and the things He’s done for us. It’s such a powerful weapon that it can change the entire atmosphere immediately. We can go from chaos to peace in an instant.

Love is the greatest commandment in the Bible. (Matthew 22:37-40) First, we are to love God with all our heart, soul, and mind. But then it says we should also love our neighbor as ourselves. One of the best ways to care for someone is to share the love of Jesus with them. We are all called to spread the good news of the Gospel message with others. And what better way to defeat the devil than by making sure Jesus is known throughout the world!

There are two specific outreach opportunities this weekend that will help you stand stronger during the fight. Please join us as we stand together to defeat the enemy!
