Reading for Monday, Oct 1: 2 Cor 10
As Paul defends his ministry in ch10, he reminds us of a critical issue: “For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ…” (v3-5).
Too often, we’re all too willing to wage war according to the flesh.
Too often, we’re all too willing to lose sight of the true enemy.
Too often, we give the forces of evil a foothold in our thought life.
But there is hope…
…for divine power to destroy fortresses of darkness.
…for the knowledge of God to trump all understanding.
…for every thought to be taken captive, subservient to the lordship of Christ.
