Divine Power To Destroy Stongholds


For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds (2 Corinthians 10:3-4).

While considering these¬†two verses, D.A. Carson writes…

Argue a skeptic into a corner, and you will not take his mind for Christ, but pray for him, proclaim the gospel to him, live out the gospel of peace, walk righteously by faith until he senses your ultimate allegiance and citizenship are vastly difference from his own, and you may discover that the power of truth, the convicting and regenerating work of the Holy Spirit, and the glories of Christ Jesus shatter his reason and demolish his arguments until you take captive his mind and heart to make them obedient to Christ. The result will be a life transformed.
