Fighting the world.

You cannot fight the world by using the world’s methods. That will only make you like the world, and reliant on evil to win, instead of God.

Often in confronting evil or adversaries we want to defeat them by any means necessary. They offended us in a grievous way so we will use that same action they did to us against them. They call us a name so we insult them back. They belittle us and so we mock them. We hate with a passion what they did to us, but we do the same hated thing to them!

You do not fight evil by doing evil, only evil wins then and you advance the devil’s kingdom. Do good to your enemies instead, for that is what Jesus commands:

Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

Have faith and let God be the judge of things. He will judge all things perfectly.

Romans 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

We must learn to be patient in trials, in time good bears fruit and overcome evil.

Hebrews 10:36 For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.

When you rely on God for victory and you are on His side in the matter, nothing can overcome you.

1 Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

God Bless you with faith, and with strength to overcome, in Jesus name,

Amen

    Amen! Another thing to watch for is trying to win the world with the world’s methods; the same thing happens, and again the world is left thinking that they are the same as the Christians! They think there’s no need for them to change when they see that.

    Our primary job is to win souls. We can do that far better by constantly showing love to Every person we come across vs pointing fingers and condemning. “First love God with all of your mind, body and soul and then love your neighbors”. Keep spreading the Truth brother.
