We Fight Different

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

2 Corinthians 10:3

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does.

O-bservation:

St. Paul explained to the Church at Corinth that while we are, as “Followers of Jesus,” fellow citizens of this world, we don’t engage in the same kind of warring against one another as others do.

A-pplication:

There’s no doubt that the longer I live the more I understand that it is a “dog eat dog” kind of existence for so many people. When Darwin promoted “Survival of the Fittest” within the animal kingdom he certainly had humans in mind. That is not the way we as believers operate. In fact, Jesus taught an Old Testament directive that we call “The Golden Rule.” We don’t “Do” to others before they “Do” to us. Rather we are called to “Do” to others the way we would love to be treated. If you’re looking at this life the way the Apostle presented it as a huge “Fight,” the truth is as Followers Of Jesus “We Fight Different!”

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus,

This AM please help me fight the good fight of faith instead of warring against my fellow man. Amen
