We often mistake who our enemy is. This is no surprise; we live in a militarized culture who stirs fear often by naming our enemy. And the response is often predictable: kill them before they kill us. However, this kind of thinking doesn’t do us any good because this is not what’s being talked about here. First off, our enemy are not those we hate, but those who hate us. Second, our enemy is not flesh and blood. Third, this is about a subversive kind of fight … which is why the armor is not realarmor but a way of protecting our hearts and souls. Fourth, this is not about attacking, but standing, because as it turns out, the victory is already won through Jesus’ loss on the cross.
Ephesians 6:13 – 17
