News Headlines

Psalm 2:1

1Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? 

News headlines are not without heartbreaking articles about death of innocent individuals. It’s heartbreaking for families to hear disappearance of their loved ones. It negatively affected worldwide economy when it was reported about inconsiderate nation attacked another nation without any provocation. It is not very easily forgettable article about authorities manipulating organizations that disturbed affected particular group of people. It has scared particular minority groups to be the target of bad element of the society.

How should Christians live in this dark world of violence? It teaches us in Ephesians 6:10-12, 10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

Of course, it takes faith to sincerely believe that the Scripture is true and accurate. When we seriously take the Scripture, we make sure to do just as it advises. The Holy Spirit inspires us to put on the full armor of God. Yet, many believers struggle to behave as Christians. Why?

Human sinful nature can influence even spiritual mature believers. Apostle Paul testifies in Romans 7:17-18, 18For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. 19For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. 

  It is very advisable to intentionally seek guidance from the Lord and be aware always that our human sinful nature can still influence us somehow.

Lord Jesus, help me seek to be filled by your Holy Spirit always.
