It’s Time to Suit Up

“The night is almost gone; the day of salvation will soon be here. So remove your dark deeds like dirty clothes, and put on the shining armor of right living.”—Romans 13:12

Like it or not, as a follower of Jesus you will have people who show hostility toward you. Jesus said, “If the world hates you, remember that it hated me first. The world would love you as one of its own if you belonged to it, but you are no longer part of the world. I chose you to come out of the world, so it hates you” (John 15:18–19).

It’s true. If you dare to speak up about Jesus Christ, watch what will happen. It’s an entirely different paradigm. The world will treat you as Jesus was treated. This is the battle between God’s seed and Satan’s seed, which we can trace all the way back to the book of Genesis.

We have a choice as Christians. It isn’t a choice of fighting or not fighting in the spiritual battle; it’s a choice of victory or defeat, advancing or retreating. In the Christian life, either you are overcoming, or you will be overcome.

We’re living in a very critical time. The devil knows his days are numbered. He knows his judgment is sure. Thus, he’s doing everything he can to wreak as much havoc as possible until the day he faces his judgment. That is why we need to get busy. Every battle counts. Every day is important.

The Bible says, “The night is almost gone; the day of salvation will soon be here. So remove your dark deeds like dirty clothes, and put on the shining armor of right living” (Romans 13:12).

It’s time to suit up. But first, cast off those works of darkness. Be done with the compromising life. Be done with trying to live in both worlds. Let’s suit up. Let’s get busy. Let’s engage. And let’s watch what the Lord will do.
