Tactics

Satan does not have the power to confront God and win. Rather, he needs to do his dirty work with espionage. He wants to corrupt and disrupt the plans and work of God. So, the third key to victory is to guard against the Devil’s ways.

Our Hero

The second key to victory in our struggle is to know who deals with the enemy. This is a foe who has already taken us down. God has given us a champion to fight for us and he has already won the war. The enemy is on borrowed time with limited weapons.

Know Your Enemy

Paul assures us that “our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms: (Eph 6:12). Like all struggles, the first key to victory is knowing who our enemy is.

Why the Resurrection Matters

God has raised Jesus from the dead. This is the bedrock statement of our faith and its a promise. Because Jesus is raised from the dead we know that God is renewing his whole creation through Jesus and that includes us. We will be raised too. The resurrection is God’s offer to us of life!

Good Friday: The Centre of History

We are living through a time that will change our lives forever. However, there is an event even greater. The cross of Christ stands at the centre of history and the world will never be the same again!

Lovers in a Dangerous Time

Not for one second does Jesus suggest loving an enemy is easy. But, that doesn’t change the fact that it is exactly what he has called us to do. So, the disciple of Jesus needs to have the attitude that being like God (the cross) is more important than hating my hate for another.

Go the Extra Mile

The world is convinced that it is good. It can be blind to its own selfishness. Christians are called to reveal the world to itself. One way we do this is by going the extra mile. Our attitude is that we will out live the world (in terms of goodness).

Don’t Sell Me

We live in a world of words designed to influence us according to different agendas. It’s tempting to use our own Christian words to do the same. But, to do so would be to do violence to others. Our attitude needs to be nonviolence—we will speak simply, trusting God.

Keep Being An Old Softy

Marriage represents our most intimate relationships: relationships with God and with each other. So, our attitudes towards marriage mirror these other relationships. The attitude Jesus disciples must have is not to treat those relationships lightly by casting them away. Instead, we need to want to protect each other.

No Time to Fool Around

Our culture tells us that its okay to look as long as we don’t touch. But, the disciple of Jesus knows that looking will lead to touching. So, the disciple maintains the attitude that our relationship with Jesus is the most important thing—too important to fool around with.
