Standing In Spiritual Conflict
We often fall in spiritual conflict because we stand in our armor instead of God’s armor. Being clothed like Jesus in spiritual conflict, as well as understanding the individual parts of God’s armor, help us to stand in new way.
Some of us under-spiritualize reality. We receive truth only if we can touch, see and quantify it. Some of us tend to super-spiritualize reality. We ignore the material world or focus upon renouncing demons instead of repenting of sin. Some of us pseudo-spiritualize reality, that is seek to fashion our own spiritual reality. Ephesians 6 teaches any of these three make it impossible to endure spiritual conflict, and then provides an effective way to stand.
