The Fight-not a lone warrior

 The fight         

  So the battle is raging; you have put your armor on!  Yes you are standing in the strength of His might.  You are on the alert.  You are praying...  you are ready!  But all is quiet in your area, your small circle if you will.

  But the battle is raging!  Where?  It is all around.  You must recognize that you are not a lone soldier; you are part on an army!  The battle is raging!  Maybe not in direct contact with you now; but the brother next to you is fighting hard... He might/does need help.  That is verse Eph. 6:18 

"18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. " 

  We are part of the body of Christ.  We are not independent...  Not as individuals or as local Churches...  We are member of the body of Christ as Believers.  Yes there are times you are fighting alone; but how much more' power' ... when we unite together in the battle.  When we call on brothers and sister to pray... join you/ me in the battle... When you are in a battle and you are all alone, not good.  I'm not saying you are going to loss... but as Ecc. 4:9-12 says,

"Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: 10 If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. 11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? 12 Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."

  How blessed each of us would be when brothers and sisters in the Lord recognize others in the mist of the battle; and join them, support them, pray for them... and celebrate the victory... United under the Lord Jesus Christ!
