What does it REALLY mean to mark yourself as one of Christ’s own? It means you’ve entered the fray.
Not ‘when you feel like it’.
Not ‘sending money and praying for the folks doing the real heavy lifting’.
The Enemy slaps a target on your back — yes, even YOURS — from Day One.
And if you want to survive the encounter, you’re gonna want to follow the lead of the one guy who has ever come through every fight with sin and temptation unscathed.
You remember him, right? He was that Nazarene Rebel who kicked sand in El Diablo’s face after forty days in the Wilderness without a sandwich or even a single delivery from Uber Eats?
The fight has already begun. You can stand around and get your bell rung, or you can learn how to duck a punch and learn to throw one that will bring the kingdom of darkness to his knees.
If you’re in it to win it — and your opponent is, whether you’re ready or not — you’re gonna want to show up to the fight, and do it His way.
