We have been forewarned of the danger of taking our salvation lightly. We need to study the Word, pray and meditate on it daily. Our flesh is weak and can be easily tempted to return to its old sinful ways. It is up to us to “put on the full armor of God” every day. The armor of God is designed to fight the spiritual battle that goes on in our minds all day long, every day.
3 For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. — 2 Cor. 10:3-5 NIV
Each day, we need to encourage each other and support each other with our prayers, so that we can persevere.
36 You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. — Hebrews 10:35 NIV
