A Constant Battle

   You would think that when a person comes to faith in Christ everything would just be a downhill ride from then on. The truth is, the Christian lives in constant spiritual warfare, and the major battle field is in the mind of the Christian. We are instructed in the Bible to take on the mind of Christ. If that were not possible, we would not be told to do it. In order to have the mind of Christ, we must know the will of Christ and be surrendered to it, we must absolutely believe His promises, and we must speak in consistency with the word of God. We are in the world, but we are not of the world, but it’s very easy to act like we are of the world. It’s very easy to become conformed to this world, and it is constant battle to resist that by choosing to be continually transformed by the renewing of our mind. It is a constant battle, but it is He who works in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure. Greater is He that is in you, than he who is in the world. Victory in Jesus is more than just a song.
