“For you are my safe refuge, a fortress where my enemies cannot reach me.”
The Christian life is not a playground; it’s a battleground. In fact, the Bible frequently uses the images of war and conflict to depict the Christian life.
The apostle Paul exhorted Timothy, “Endure suffering along with me, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus” (2 Timothy 2:3 NLT). He also wrote, “I have fought the good fight” (2 Timothy 4:7 NLT).
Anyone who chooses to follow Jesus Christ will face severe opposition from the Enemy. But the good news is that we have a choice in the spiritual battle. We can win this war. And here’s more good news: we’ll win in the end.
