Scriptures: Ephesians 6:12, 2 Timothy 4:7, 1 Timothy 6:12, 2 Corinthians 11:14, James 4:7
The Bible reminds us that we are in a spiritual war against evil. As believers, we wear armor, we have adversaries and we are under attack. Yet sometimes we forget the battles being waged spiritually all around us and within us as we live our lives each day. Through this message, Dr. Merritt encourages us to get out of the barracks and onto the battlefield--showing up and being aware of your place in God's army is half the battle!
"If you are a Christian I want you to listen to this next statement: In your war, God wants you to be victorious. It is high time that many Christians quit blowing the retreat, and begin sounding the charge. There are too many Christians who are letting the devil take it to them when they ought to be taking it to the devil." --Dr. Merritt
