"No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier."
What soldier enters a battle with a television show on the forefront of his mind? Or a football game? Vanity? What about gossip? Why then do I? Why do we?
When a soldier enters the battlefield, I would believe his concern lies with being victorious.
How are we, as true believers in Jesus Christ any diffferent than that of a soldier?
Scripture implores us, as Christians to engage in the battle, and tells us to be watchful, with all perseverance and supplication.
How then can we be victorious? How can we stand against the wiles of the devil?
By taking up the whole armor of God.
You have made it crystal clear my Lord. But with every verse, it becomes clearer.
I kneel in utter submission before You.
