Fight On!

Fight On!



No, this is in no way a tribute to the University of Southern California. Instead, it will be a chance for us to look at our Christian lives and think about whether or not we are actually putting in the effort needed to make it work. This idea is based off of an invitation given by Jerrie Barber in which he made a very good point: if we refer to ourselves as “Soldiers of Christ”, why are we surprised when we are called to fight?

In Ephesians six starting in verse ten we are told of all the armor we need in order to be a solider for Christ. We are told to put on the fullarmor of God. Notice: that we don’t get to pick and choose what parts of the armor we want to put on. In order for it to be effective we must be fully prepared.

We are told gird our loins with truth, put on the breastplate of righteousness, and protect our feet with the preparation of the Gospel. Not only that, but we are to take up the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit. Notice: there is no mention of any type of armor to protect our back. Some will argue that’s what the breastplate is for. I believe there is nothing protecting our back because that is where God is. He is always behind us, helping us move forward. With God there shouldn’t be a reason for us to turn and run away. Our back should never be exposed.

Of course all of this is pointless if you never put it to use. What good is the armor of God if we never test it? We tend to live in a world where we are complacent to acknowledge God and thank him when everything is going well. But the minute things start to get tough; we question Him and wonder where He has gone. He hasn’t gone anywhere; He is still carrying us and pushing us forward. God never promised us a life of ease and luxury if we decide to follow Him. We are soldiers, so why aren’t we preparing for a fight? Being a Christian requires effort, it requires work, and it requires FIGHT. So stop asking what God is going to do for you, He’s promised you the greatest reward of all time, only if we give Him everything we have. So have faith and FIGHT ON!
