Vital signs- Sunday September 27th,2020


Your great confidence should be in this—no matter what you face, the great dragon slayer Himself is at your side, teaching you to fight and backing you up at every turn. In the end He is the One who will deal the fatal blow to the dragon and crush Satan under your feet. (See Romans 16:20)


Ephesians 6:18 teaches us that we are supposed to have each other’s backs. We are supposed to be praying for each other and looking out for each other. This is part of the armor God intended. None of us are intended to go into battle alone. We need our brothers and sisters.


There are two important takeaways from this. First, it is important that you are plugged in to a spiritual community. You need the support, accountability, and love of the body of Christ. You need to be submitted in love to your spiritual family and be loyal to them.


The second takeaway is this: make sure you are looking out for your brothers and sisters in Christ the way you want them to look out for you. Fight for your spiritual family. Be loyal to them. Be generous, be kind, be patient, and above all be loving.


Life is difficult, and we know that in this world we will have trouble— Jesus assured us of it. But He also told us we can be of good cheer because He has already overcome the world (John 16:33). Sometimes you will be wounded. You might even lose battles from time to time. That is the nature of war. But the prize goes not to the one who fights perfectly but to the one who keeps fighting.


Be the one who gets back up. Be the one who endures to the end.



“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.””

‭‭John‬ ‭16:33‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
