Meditation Monday is where I share my reflections on Sunday’s sermons from my church, Watson Chapel Baptist Church, Pastor Todd Howard.
Currently we are going through 2 Corinthians. Yesterday the passage we were in were 2 Corinthians 10:1-6.
Paul uses the war motif in this passage, as he does in some of his other letters. Paul points out that Christian are to be warriors for truth. Taking down strongholds of error and lies with the truth. We are the salt and light and we shine forth the beacon of truth in a dying world that desperately needs truth. As “Truth Warriors” there are a few things we should consider
1.Be A Gracious Defender.
As Truth Warriors we must be gracious. We can not be jerks with the truth. We must speak the truth in love. Which leads to the second part of this thought, you must speak the truth. We hold a treasure, which is Christ and truth, that is meant to be shared. We must be searching for the opportunities to share truth so that the Spirit of Truth can break down strongholds of lies and error.
2. There is No Nobility in Ignorance.
As Truth Warriors we must spend the time to study to know the
truth and know how to defend it. We must know the what and why of our Christian Faith so we can effectively give an answer to the hope that lies within us.
3. The Truth Warrior is Determined.
A great example of a determined Truth Warrior is Paul. Paul would speak truth wherever he went, no matter the cost. As Truth Warriors we must be determined to continue and fulfill the Great Comission on this earth. To do that we must determine in our hearts to speak the truth wherever we can.
Until next week
