‘…our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realm…’ (Ephesians 6:12)

For many these words might seem a bit extreme, yet the reality is that the moment we give ourselves to Jesus Christ, the moment we accept Him as our Lord and Saviour, these beings that Paul speaks of become our enemies. Through Christ victory has been won and our ultimate salvation is assured, but still we are called to stand up to and combat all kinds of wickedness and evil in the world, and if ever we should feel discouraged by verses like this we should remember what our Lord said to Peter in Matthew 16:18. By His Spirit God will give us the strength we need.

 

If there is any interest I’m looking to start a Zoom Bible discussion evening in the next few weeks. My plan would be to discuss the Bible passages that we looked at on the previous Sunday and just have a discussion about them in a bit more detail and end with 5 minutes or so of prayer. If you are interested please email me : Andrew.Graham@churchofscotland.org.uk I would need your email details to send you the Zoom link for you to join in. Each session would be no more than 40 minutes, as that’s the time limit I have on my zoom account, and could be on either an afternoon or evening.
