Swordsmanship

Like the post? Why not make it Facebook official. ⇊

“And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”
—Ephesians 6:17

I heard a story about a man who went to see a doctor because both of his ears were severely burned. The doctor said, “Oh my! I have never seen anything like this. Please tell me what happened.”


 

General Michael Flynn defense fund Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 


The man said, “Doc, I was ironing and had my phone next to the iron. Someone called, and I answered the iron instead of the phone.”

“That is horrible!” the doctor said. “How did you burn your other ear?”

“Well, they called back.”

There are natural reflexes and conditioned reflexes. For instance, if you touch a hot iron and pull away, that’s a natural reflex. A conditioned reflex, however, is something you’ve taught yourself to do, like drive a car. When you’re first learning to drive, there are a lot of things to remember: put the car in gear, look over your shoulder, and use the turn signal. But after you’ve been driving for a while, you don’t have to think about those things anymore. You’ve learned to do them automatically.

We want to develop a conditioned reflex when it comes to our spiritual lives. In Ephesians 6, the last weapon Paul lists in the Christian’s spiritual arsenal is the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. You can have all the greatest armor, but if you don’t have the sword, the enemy will take you out. We need to learn how to use the sword of the Spirit.

What shape is your sword in? Is it polished from daily use as you study the Scriptures on a regular basis and sharpen it on the anvil of experience as you obey what it says? Or, is it rusty and dull from disobedience?

If you neglect the Scriptures, your spiritual life will unravel. You need God’s Word in your life.

It is vitally important that we all take the time to like and share articles regardless of what site you are on. Conservative sites (like this one) cannot count on traffic from Facebook etc. any more. Subscribing is also important; this bypasses the censorship. The more that we can get the word out the better – and in order to continue bringing you content like this – we ALL need traffic in order to survive. Running a website is not only expensive, it also takes a lot of time and effort.

No one likes ads, but very few people will donate, hence the reason most of us have ads.

Besides donating and clicking on ads, you can make a purchase from our store and buy my book.
