Every day there is a tug of war, a spiritual battle for our soul. It is our choice what side of the rope we are on each day. Each day we can waver back and forth to what side of the rope best fits OUR desire. The rope represents our life & there are forces we cannot see battling for our mind. A lot of Christians fail to realize that when they get on the Lord’s winning side they still need to fight. They still need to pull their weight on the rope. We need to fight for purity and righteousness. Fight for the desire to be on the winning team and don’t let yourself be lulled into the losing team.
The Bible says, “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 NKJV.
