I am an absolute product of God’s Grace and Mercy; and yet I find this same Grace an extreme struggle to bestow upon others. I profess to want to love other people – especially believers – as Christ continues to love us; but is it possible to do so in all of our brokenness and sinful natures?
Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. ~ Ephesians 6
