Scripture pictures this world as a battlefield. It says Christians are to stand strong against demonic forces (Ephesians 6:10-20; 2 Corinthians 10:3-6; 1 Peter 5:8-10). Now we are told that Christ has already won the victory (Colossians 2:13-15;1 John 4:4; Hebrews 2:14,15). But from our perspective we are still in the midst of the battle. We are told that in Christ we will ultimately conquer (1 John 5:4; Romans 8:37; 2 Corinthians 2:14). But we are also told to stand firm and be on the alert. Though we will ultimately be victorious, we are not to let our guard down and be comfortable in this world. But we also do not despair, knowing God will bring us through. And we must avoid too simple answers and quick fixes that get us to expect easy solutions. For we are in a battle.
