Why are we so easily entrapped by the desire for an easy life? Life is hard. And I’ve got it easy! Compared to most people who ever lived or are living, I have a luxurious lifestyle.
And particularly as Christians we are called to a battle, not a life of ease; to a battle, a warfare, a wrestle, a struggle. it’s partly a battle with our old self; partly a battle against evil spiritual powers and principalities.
Christ has equipped us for the battle. “Be strong in the Lord. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand up against the devil.” -Ephesians 6:10-11
