We’ve been talking about fighting the spiritual war that wages all around us. Satan and his forces are out to destroy us. He has weapons that, on the surface, seem to overpower us, yet Paul tells us to “Be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power!” Paul then goes on to remind us that the armor and weapons of God are far superior to any attack Satan can mount. But more than just withstanding Satan’s attacks, we are to be on the offensive. Taking the fight to Satan. Just as David ran to meet Goliath on the field of battle, so to we are to take the fight to Satan.
We discussed having our feet “properly fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.” This is our mission. To take share the gospel with those whom Satan has taken captive, thereby freeing them from Satan, sin and its consequences. I think about the ally forces of World War II reaching the concentration camps. Discovering the malnourished, shrunken, pitiful survivors, they freed them and brought them hope and life. Through the gospel we accomplish the same mission. Freeing the pitiful survivors of Satan’s bondage.
Paul tells us to buckle the belt of truth around our waist (gird our loins KJV). Truth is the ultimate weapon against Satan, because at the core of all his schemes are lies. It was a lie that Eve succumbed to and it is lies that hold our world captive today. The truth is in God’s Word and we are the messengers of that truth. So buckle up! Put on the whole armor of God and let’s take the fight to Satan!
