The Christian mission is to transform civilians into soldiers.
A believer is not, can not, should not be a civilian of this world.
“Dear friends, I warn you as “temporary residents and foreigners” to keep away from worldly desires that wage war against your very souls.”-1 Peter 2:11.
We are at war. And one of the greatest threat to the Christian way of life is – Christians infatuation with this world.
The life of pleasure and ease. The civilian life.
Nothing is ‘purer’ than a man in whom there’s no distinction between what he does and who he is.
If what we do must always be different from who we are, then civil war is within us, and we are losing grounds,
Because He said,”…you are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect.”
Our job is to make a spiritual fact, a physical reality.
You can’t do that if you’re gonna sell your soul and remain a civilian.
You’ve got to intentionally, consciously, and steadfastly expose your flesh to the rigors of spiritual militia exercise.
“For the flesh craves what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary the flesh. They are opposed to one another, so that you do not do what you want.”-Galatians 5:17
We are to starve our fleshly passions, and feed our spiritual aspirations.
It is an aberration, an abomination that folks are attempting to feed their flesh and spirit at the same time, the same place, and the same event.
“Fight the good fight of the faith. Lay hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and also did confess the good confession before many witnesses.”-1 Timothy 6:12.
“For those who are led by the Spirit of GOD are the children of GOD.”-Romans 18:14.
