Showdown

Showdown.

If you are of a certain age, you get a picture of two cowboys facing each other, standing in a dusty street, hands twitching over pistols, ready to shoot it out.

If  you are of a certain age, you get a picture of a video game face off.

If you are of a certain age, you get a picture of  two people in a ring (now days, either males or females), circling, about to hit, kick, or inflict pain on the other.

Do you ever think about spiritual showdowns?  Do you ever see yourself  standing against forces of darkness and deceit, ready for battle?  Do you ever see yourself facing off against the forces that want to steal joy, love, and hope?  Do you ever see yourself in the moment of supreme courage, where you rely on the Spirit of God to strengthen you against all the messages that want to tell you you don’t measure up?

You and I are engaged in real battles like this everyday, showdowns.  So we need to have the mindset of a solider, ready for battle at anytime with our Savior, Jesus.

A showdown is just around the corner.
