Can We Talk – Homework Week #6, Day #4

The call to act. Stand at attention and be alert. Ephesians 6:10-11, 13-18. Ah, the armor of God. We are warriors in the midst of battle. We forget that too often, thinking that life is merely difficult. We forget that we are under attack and the enemy is prowling around. Are we well-trained like soldiers ready for battle? I don’t think that many of us are. I believe that we as Christians have fallen down on the job of discipling those less mature than us, and that we are too arrogant to admit that we have lots to learn from those who are more mature than we are.

Because of this, I believe the body of Christ is weak and we need to take it upon ourselves to teach others. Encourage and discipline the less mature and ask questions of elders. Ask a more mature Christian to mentor you. Take a baby Christian under your wing. I pray that You will empower and strengthen the body of Christ, Father. Make us into a powerful fighting force fully capable of standing in battle. In Christ’s name. Amen.
