WordBytes on Spiritual Warfare
Why is there so much evil in the world? Why doesn’t God raise His almighty hand against war, against abuse, against poverty, against criminals, or against any evil corrupting the world and our lives? It’s a familiar question. The answer is, HE DOES! But He does it through the vine. Jesus and the Bride — the Church — are united. We are commissioned to continue the victory over evil that He began. It’s called spiritual warfare.
But if the branches are not bearing good fruit, or ENOUGH good fruit, evil has room to keep on going and growing…. God’s effective strategy against evil is to conquer it through the Body. Christ’s body died on the cross for our sins and then came back to life, thus overcoming the power of evil. All who join themselves to His Body enter into this victory over evil. We who are His Body, the Church, are to take advantage of this great opportunity! Connected to Christ like grape branches are connected to the vine, we can defeat the power-broken evil around us. Not alone, though. (Excerpt from The power to overcome evil)
