There is a spiritual battle raging all around us. As Christian men and husbands, we would be fools to forget this fact as I believe many of us have done. I know I have. This is a battle for our minds, marriages, and ultimately our effectiveness for the gospel of Jesus Christ. We need to be aware now, more than ever and we need to be preparing ourselves so that we do not lose this battle.
David was supposed to be fully suited in armor leading his valiant men on the front lines in battle and not on the rooftop gazing at another mans naked wife. He wasn’t prepared and he wasn’t where he was supposed to be. So let us learn for King David’s example and not fall into the same pit as him and let us be lead by the one true King triumphantly into battle.
Be where you need to be. Have your spiritual armor ready. Somehow I begin to think that things are going to get harder for Christians in the so-called free world long before they get easier.
