Observation: What a battle is raging. And the crux of the battle is who are we worshipping. Most of today's passage focuses on the Good Guys. On us. On what Good is coming. But that doesn't mean Good isn't fighting. Jesus fights for us. The angels put themselves in danger for us. Its a battle!
Application: I'm not sure I treat every day like my faith is a battle. I'm not sure that I fight for what is right or good or important every day. I don't always give it the importance it deserves. Evil sure seems to treat life as a battle. I see it all the time. But I'm not so sure I do.
I hope today I can go out into the world and try to battle for the good guys. Try to win people over with my love. Try to smile more and hug more and love more. I think I can do it! I think we can win!
Prayer--O Lamb of God--thank you for fighting for me. Give me the strength and courage to fight for you. Remind me that I am yours--always. In your name I pray. Amen
