Fight for What's Worth Fighting For

I'm reading Ephesians 6:10-20 about spiritual warfare and remembering that every fight is about control. This is true in our personal life, our family life, and this is also true in church life. Every church problem, every church fight and every church split is about control. When Jesus is not allowed to lead the church, there will be division.

This is why so many have been disillusioned by the church and wondered away from the faith. We have not always represented our leader, Jesus, very well.

We are in a battle. The battle is over who is in control of our minds, our hearts, our families, our church, etc.

Lord, help us to come together and surrender our hearts and our personal agendas to you. Let the church come together and fight for the things worth fighting for: healing of broken hearts, unity, peace, lost souls, families and our community.

So let it be.
