The topic of spiritual warfare is itself the topic of spiritual warfare. It’s as though certain hidden forces would rather us not talk about it.
As C.S. Lewis says in the introduction to his Screwtape Letters, it as though the general public prefers to ignore the forces of evil altogether as nonsense by using a cartoon of a ‘devil’ with horns and hoofs; or at the other extreme, take an unhealthy interest in everything demonic.
In Ephesians 6:10–24 we have a reminder of the daily and yearly battle for the Kingdom… and the weapons at our disposal.
We rarely think of our difficulty to forgive people, to pray regularly, to resist temptation, to read the Bible, and learn more about the faith as struggles that are part of a much larger campaign.
We are front-line soldiers who need to know about the larger campaign. Satan was defeated by Jesus Christ on the Cross, but he will attack and attack to separate us from Christ. So get ready, and stand firm in the Lord!
In Christ, Tory Cayzer.
