“There’s an extremely important fact that every believer must clearly understand… you will feel confused and defeated in trying to live the Christian life if you don’t get this down, and you will miss opportunities to serve God and enjoy His blessings… As believers in Christ we do not fight for victory; we fight from victory. In Christ’s power we are invincible.” -Chip Ingram, The Invisible War
The Invisible War is one of the most compelling books I’ve ever read. The book by Pastor Chip Ingram is based on his eight part teaching series about spiritual warfare, and let me tell you, it’s so worth a read! Ingram jumps off with Ephesians 6:10-12 and walks us through what the Bible teaches us about the reality of spiritual warfare and how we, as believers, should arm ourselves to fight from victory (because victory is already ours through Christ). I completed the DVD study with my small group last year, and now Kim and I are reading the book together.
