Spiritual warfare

Soldiers are trained to keep their equipment in battle-ready condition, Weapons are cleaned and oiled, communications equipment is checked and double-checked, and helmets are kept in place in case of sudden attack. If we prepare so diligently to face a human enemy, Paul says, how much more ought we to prepare for battle against our spiritual enemy? Satan will attack, he says, and only the believer who is grounded in the truth of God's Word will recognize his lies. Only a personal acceptance by faith of God's love can protect our hearts from Satan's fiery temptations. Only a sure knowledge of salvation protects our minds from doubt. And only the Word of God and power of Jesus Christ can cause Satan to flee in terror. Are you fully prepared for battle?
From Tyndale House
