Scripture at Sunrise 7.25.2011

“For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the mweapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ.” –excerpts from 2 Corinthians 10:1-5

In the midst of Paul defending his apostleship, he reminds the Corinthians that the battles he is facing are spiritual. (Ephesians 6:12; Philippians 2:25; 1 Timothy 6:12; 2 Timothy 2:3-4; 1 Thessalonians 5:8) Paul lets them know he is not fighting with fleshly weapons. His weapons are far greater because human weapons mean nothing in the spiritual realm.

The only weapon in the armor of God is the sword of the Spirit, His Word! Every false teaching and error will be triumphed by the truth of God. That is what changes hearts.

Truth will always prevail. Don’t ever be ashamed to proclaim the Word of God. It will crumble every error. Only the truth that will set people free.
