is about us being Awake for the Cause of Christ, but when engaging the world you find you come away with bumps and bruises, and sometimes serious wounds that can take you out of commission. This can leave you weak, and the enemy would like to take advantage of that.....
"I'm at war with the world and they try to pull me into the Dark" - 2 Corinthians 10:3-5. When you witness to the world offering Salvation from Jesus you will be rejected. They will argue with you, and even try to show you why the Bible, and Jesus are not true. If fact misery loves company for those who live with no hope, and some will even try and pull you into the world in which they live....one without Jesus, which walks in the darkness. Your Faith shield (Ephesians 6:16) may have taken some heavy fire....
"I struggle to find my Faith (2 Corinthians 12:9-10), as I'm slippin' from your arms. It's getting harder to stay awake, and my strength is fading fast." 1 Corinthians 10:13. We can come away from witnessing and sharing the Gospel message with rejection, shame, fear from those that have express their hate for what we believe. We may have even given in to compromise thinking it might save them even though we do not compromise the Gospel Message ( Psalms 119:1-5). Now you become spiritually wounded, may have been taken out of the fight for awhile. You are now bandaged (comforted) of your bruises by fellow Christians who love you, and the healing is complete. Problem: you are afraid to take off the bandages as the world and your fellow Christians might see your scars. There is no need to feel Shame or Sadness from a mistake you have asked forgiveness for, or feel bad thinking you failed your mission. If you trust in Jesus you will never be disgraced - Romans 10:11.
"Here, right here, Right now , right now. Stand my ground and never back down (Ephesians 6:13) I know what I believe inside, I'm Awake and I'm Alive" - 1 John 5:1-5 You are a Child of God because you have believe in Jesus. Not just today, but everyday and from now on. You are Awake and Alive in Jesus. Anyone who will tell you different is different. They are against you and assisting the enemy. You can defeat the enemy with the Armor of God (Ephesians 6:13-18). The Victory is achieved through your Faith in Jesus, and the battle against the world is won because of your faith in God, and the Cause of Christ. (1John 5:5).
As Christian if you feel beaten down in your faith, and it's become a struggle to get back up please stay down on your knees and pray for God to strengthen you as he tells us in Ephesians 3:14-19.
