A Fight to the Finish

The harvest is great, but laborers are few

Pray for laborers. I could not get away from this as I was doing my confessions this morning

He's going into the highways and byways compelling them to come

Prodigals coming home. Many prodigals that many have given up on. They many be the ugliest thing, but I'll take them and make something out of them.

Body parts floating around with no place to go. Parts being connected so, that the body can be whole.

I've called you, and prepared you for such a time as this.

~ Ephesians 6:10-20 (The Message Bible)

 "And that about wraps it up. God is strong, and he wants you strong. So take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. And put them to use so you will be able to stand up to everything the Devil throws your way. This is no afternoon athletic contest that we'll walk away from and forget about in a couple of hours. This is for keeps, a life-or-death fight to the finish against the Devil and all his angels.

Be prepared. You're up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, so that when it's all over but the shouting you'll still be on your feet. Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and salvation are more than words. Learn how to apply them. You'll need them throughout your life. God's Word is an indispensable weapon. In the same way, prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare. Pray hard and long. Pray for your brothers and sisters. Keep your eyes open. Keep each other's spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out."
