The Spiritual Warrior

Everyday we are fighting the good fight of faith in the ring of life, and since we are spiritual beings, we must train to war in the spirit and become more familiar with our element, like our Arm Forces; the Navy trains mainly on and under water, the Air Force mainly trains in the air while the Army and the Marines fight mainly on the ground. we as spiritual beings must learn how to fight in the spirit, since our enemy the devil is a spiritual being.
1 Tim.4:8 For physical training is of some value (useful for a little), but godliness (spiritual training) is useful and of value in everything and in every way, for it holds promise for the present life and also for the life which is to come. Amp.
There are a lot of Christians who are flabby spiritually; they will spend more time working on their bodies than building themselves up spiritually where the real fight is. Your six pack abs won’t do anything against the schemes and deceptions of the devil, curses, sicknesses, fears, addictions, depression or a troubled mind. In 1 Pet.5:8 Peter warn the Christians about the devil ways to destroy them; He said, Be sober, be vigilant because your adversary the devil walks about like roaring lion, seeking whom he nay devour. the devil is devouring the Christians who are not prepared to do war in the spirit. Our Arm Forces train and prepare new recruits before they are shipped off to war which gives them the skills they need to defend themselves and to defeat the enemy; it is no difference for the Christian, for you to neutralize the deceptions of the devil, you must train and prepare yourself with your spiritual weapons that God has given which is the truth. Remember. the war is won long before the bullets fly; it is won in training camp.
