Westshore Christian Church
The Sword of the Spirit
Everyday an invisible war rages around you. You have an enemy who is seeking to kill, steal, and destroy. He will do whatever he can to make you futile and unproductive in your walk with Christ. He wants you suffocating in sin, insecurity, fear, and discouragement so that you cannot live freely or fully. He is crafty. He is deceitful, and he wants to take you down and take you out. But, this enemy has also already been disarmed, embarrassed, overuled, mastered, rendered powerless, and has had all of his hard work destroyed because of the victory of Christ over sin and death. Christ's victory is your victory. We are in spiritual batter. Standing in the power of God, we win. Fighting with God's weapons, infused with God's power, we overcome.

Keys to the Fight

• Know Who God is and His Power (We fight in His strength)
• Know our identity in Christ and God’s Power available to us because of the Cross (We fight from a possession of victory)
• Recognize the devil’s schemes and fight back (We fight by walking in and living out the salvation we have received)
• Anchor ourselves in the Word of God
• Pray. Pray. Pray.
In God’s Word, we see that because of the cross, the devil has been:

• Disarmed and embarrassed (Col. 2:13-15).
• Overruled (Eph. 1:19b-22).
• Mastered (Phil. 2:9-11).
• Rendered powerless (Heb. 2:14-15).
• And all his hard work has been destroyed (I John 3:8).

So What?

• Find out what God’s Word says about your current battles.
• Write God’s Word down, and put it where you will see it often.
• Meditate on and memorize God’s Word.
• Pray God’s Word.
