As this scripture indicates, the greater purpose of the Son of God was to come to earth to conquer the plans and schemes of the evil one. He accomplished this by preaching the good news (for us) that the Kingdom is here, as well as going about healing all those who were sick and oppressed.
There is a war going on in the heavenlies, and all those who are in Christ have been enlisted in the army of the Lord. We are called to action, not just study and dialogue, as important as those things are. We are called to join in with the works of Jesus…and even greater works, because he has returned to his Father and has given authority to his followers.
What is your place in the Lord’s army? How has Holy Spirit called and gifted you to join the ranks of the victorious? An army that marches on its knees replaces fear with faith. It’s time to awaken and arise!!
