With all the other challenges we face as we try to live the Christian life, perhaps the biggest one is the spiritual war that rages all around us. For the most part, we can’t even see it but the more we are tuned into God, the clearer it becomes. And it’s not just “out there.” It’s happening in our very lives.
At Halloween we like to make fun of ghosts, goblins and zombies, and we watch scary movies. But Satan is real and he wants to mess with us. Now that’s scary.
But we don’t have to live in fear. We can take this spiritual battle seriously and yet know that God is on our side. He has given us tools and access to His supernatural power to overcome the enemy. Let’s put on our Armor of God—the helmet of salvation, breastplate of righteousness, belt of truth, shoes of peace, shield of faith, and sword of the Spirit and become real life Ghostbusters!
For greater is He who is in you that he who is in the world. (1 John 4:4)
