There are many among us who aren’t engaged; many who are sleep walking their way through the spiritual warfare that II Cor. 10 talks about. Some aren’t engaged because they are slaves to their jobs. Others aren’t engaged because they would rather pursue pleasure. Some feel they are too old while others blame their lack of engagement on a disability. The reasons for not engaging are endless.
More important than all those reasons is the reality that most of us don’t understand the war we are fighting. We know the enemy, but that’s it. We don’t know the battlefield; we aren’t familiar with the weaponry; we don’t understand the enemy’s tactics; we don’t even know what the goal is. That’s a recipe for defeat.
