How Hollywood Invaded my Midweek Bible Study
I watched a great movie Saturday night that reminded me of my midweek Bible Study about Transforming Prayer where we’re reviewing the pieces of our spiritual armor that equip us to fight our spiritual battles.
The thriller movie, Enough, stars Jennifer Lopez who is physically abused by her husband so she flees with her little daughter and learns how to fight back from the raging attempts on her life. She had to learn face-to-face combat with this abuser husband so that she could save herself and her little girl.
Lessons from our Bible Study came alive. Isn’t that what we Christians do in real life? The enemy we fight may not be flesh and blood, but principalities and powers and dark rulers in high places. These spiritual enemies want to kill, rob and destroy us just the same.
On Wednesday nights we’ve been delving into God’s great love for us; He longs to speak to us and we need to hear His voice. We’ve been targeting faith and obedience and praying in the spirit as well as looking at each piece of the armor mentioned in Ephesians 6:13-18 that assures our victory.
In the movie, J.Lo tapes her wrists, puts on her brass knuckles, learns her Karate kicks and strong punches. I’m doing the same thing, but in a spiritual sense, every Wednesday night at 6:30 p.m. as I take my seat in our church’s classroom. In the movie, the bad guy loses and the good guy wins. The Bible promises us the same!
