There’s a lot
of combat in the Bible. In fact, we could say that while the Bible is a love-story (the Cinderella Story writ large) it’s also a war-story. There’s a lot of warfare in the Hebrew Bible… the Psalms are so often about enemies and conflict.

When we get to the New Testament, we’re NOT told that this is over (John 16.33) but only that the real foe is NOT visible people but powers – we wrestle with principalities and powers (Eph 6.12ff) – the world, the flesh and the devil (the classic triad of evil replacing Egypt, Babylon and the Philistines from the time before Christ). The Book of Revelation is about WAR and a WEDDING!

You may be feeling the battle of late. It may be your own inward drive to do wrong (Rom 7) OR someone who seems to inexplicably have it in for you. It may be something you sense is spiritual (i.e. involving some sort of spiritual opposition) OR you may NOT feel it THIS week…but…you know: there’s always next week!

Today we talk about LIFE AS WAR – we learn from a bad example and between the lines we see a better Way. Let’s look at :
1) War WITHOUT Wait (W-A-I-T)
2) War and Weight Loss (W-E-I-G-H-T)
3) War WITH Wait and Weight (W-A-I-T & W-E-I-G-H-T)
