Pink: Christian warfare

Thursday, July 11, 2013
    Feast of Benedict of Nursia, Father of Western Monasticism, c.550
    For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.
    —2 Corinthians 10:3-4 (NIV)
    The Christian is engaged in a warfare. There is a fight before him, hence armour is urgently needed. It is impossible for us to stand against the wiles of the Devil unless we avail ourselves of the provision which God has made for enabling us to stand.
    ... A. W. Pink (1886-1952), Practical Christianity, Sovereign Grace Publishers, Nov 1, 2001, p. 124 (see the book)
    See also 2 Cor. 10:3-4; Mark 16:17-18; Luke 10:19-20; 21:17-19; John 12:31; Rom. 8:38-39; 13:12; 2 Cor. 6:4-10; Eph. 6:10-18; Col. 2:15; 1 Thess. 5:8
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, teach me to use the tools You have provided.
