SPIRITUAL CAPTIVITY

March 21, 2014

Friday

2 Corinthians 10:5

We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ,

 

EXAMPLE

In the late 1960’s there was a TV show called Land of the Giants. Seven people from earth found their spaceship caught in a warp of some kind and ended up on a planet where everything was twelve times larger than on earth. Each week they battled giant cats, children, and soldiers. It was a little strange but raised an interesting question. What would we do if everything and everyone was a giant accept for us?

– Unknown

 

LESSON

The truth is that we do live in a land of giants. There are things that are bigger than us which seem to stand between us and being where God wants us to be. In the Old Testament, God sent His people, Israel, to a place called The Promised Land. So why do we still battle with the same thoughts and feelings that we had before we became a Christians? Paul said, “We are human, but we don’t wage war with human plans and methods”. We are now Christians, yet we still live in the world

It was a great place to live but it also was inhabited by giants whom they would have to face and defeat. We as Christians also live in a land of giants which we must face if we are to be what God wants us to be.

 

Memory Verse: Luke 4:18
