Counting the Cost to Be A Christian

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat. Because straight is the gate, and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it – Matthew 7:13-14.

Christianity is something that differs from religion. Religion is based on what you can do or not do to be saved by works. Christianity is doing what the Word of God instructs to do or not do. It does not pick and choose which Scriptures they will submit to. Basically, religion allows people who profess they are saved to continue to do what they were doing prior to accepting salvation.

War Room

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places – Ephesians 6:10-12.

In the Christian life we battle against principalities and power, the powerful evil forces of fallen angels headed by Satan who is a vicious fighter. To withstand their attacks, we must depend on God’s strength and use every piece of His armor. As we fight against the rulers of the darkness of this world, we must fight in the strength of the church as a whole and individually, whose power comes from the Holy Spirit. Read More
