A Call to Stand Firm
1 Corinthians 16:13-14
July 3, 2022
Imagine that you are at war, and you are leading a battalion into battle. As you are preparing for this battle, someone approaches you with a book. You open the book and discover that it contains all of the enemy’s key positions, strategies, weapons and plans of attack. Would you read that book? We are in a spiritual war, and this war is for our souls. But we have a book! This book contains everything we need to win the spiritual war. Through following Jesus Christ and obeying His Word, we can win the spiritual war.
Take Home Message: The spiritual war can only be won by following God’s marching orders.
