We are born into a world at war and it is going on all around us day and night as the kingdom of darkness clashes with the Kingdom of God in spiritual warfare. Just take a look around you, there are friends and family who are being taken out all the time.
Whether or not we choose to engage in the battle we are being assaulted. The good news is that we fight from victory not towards it. We have a commander Jesus who loves us and teaches us how to battle.
