Political Battles and Culture Wars
Around the capitol we hear constantly about political battles and culture wars. This brings up an important question - in what kind of battle are believers really involved?
At His trial, Jesus told Pilate, “My kingdom is not of this world…My Kingdom is not of this realm” (John 18:36). Paul told the believers at Ephesus “Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places…” (Ephesians 6:12). We are not ultimately involved in a political battle or a culture war, we are in a spiritual battle, and we have been given victory through Jesus Christ our Lord!
When faced with the problems, challenges, and trials all around us, it is vital that we remember an important lesson from the life of David – “The Battle is the Lord’s!”
This is the message of this week’s Bible study at the West Virginia Capitol. Please pray for us as we share the message of the true victory that is only found through Christ.
