Good vs Evil

Life is a matter of good vs evil and evil vs good. The battle rages on daily. 1 Timothy 6:12 says ; each day, we must fight the good fight for our faith. We must “take hold” of our faith, be bold, and take action of our convictions. Living the christian life is not always easy. We have the flesh, the devil, and the world fighting against us everyday. We will never understand the depth of evil here on earth just like we will never completely understand God’s goodness. All we know is that good and evil exists and that they are at war with each other and we are in the center of it. There’s good news however if you are a christian. God gives us explicit instructions on how to deal with evil and sin. He actually equips us to fight the battles. God tells us in Ephesians 6:13- Put on the full amour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground. Stand firm then with the “belt of truth” buckled tight around your waist, with the “breastplate of righteous” in place, and with your “feet fitted and grounded” with the readiness which comes from gospel of peace. In addition to all of this, take up the “shield of faith” with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows that the evil one will throw at you. Take the “helmet of salvation” and the “sword of the spirit” which is the “Word of God”. And finally, “Pray in the Spirit” on all occasions and with all kinds of prayers and requests. We’re not alone in the fight. We must always keep our courage up and know 100% that God is fighting our battle for us. Trust Him and He will do it.
