[continued: offense or defense]

Zee Gimon

I am Zee. I call myself the Observer because that's what I find myself doing most of the time - observe life and people around me. My blog is a Pensieve, similar to that of Dumbledore, used to keep the thoughts and random ideas that visit my brain.

  • I am not aggressive either. I am with you on this one. Also, hate prosperity preachers. I'd like to reach through the TV and poke their eyes out. Wow, I guess that makes aggressive. LOL

  • Often when we think of defense, we think of back-pedaling and just trying to limit the number of wounds we receive… The armor of God is there to protect us when we maintain it properly and dwell in it, but I do not see us needing to back down or trying to limit our wounds.

    Part of the armor of God is the Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God. In combat, both sides wear armor, and often the armor amounts to the larger part of their inventory…but they are also equipped with a weapon in order to complete their task. Our task is to share God's love and the salvation from sin which can be found through Christ Jesus. Our weapon is God's word. Jesus in John 1 is defined as being the Word of God. Who can stand against Him.

    Assuming a strictly defensive posture would have us hiding in our Spiritual foxholes dwelling on the glorious riches of God while Satan roamed unopposed claiming the lives of the lost. We are not told to hide, we are commanded to go and love, to share the truth of the Gospel, to not cower in the face of the enemy but stand in righteousness.

    Should we be on the offense or defense? My thought is that we should be on the offense of Christ's love while equipped with His powerful defense.

    Sorry for the long comment.

    • thanks for the thoughts, Dusty! I don't mind long comments (since i like to write 'em too! :))

      heh… i guess, like in any team, there are people who are great at going and "offensing" and there are people who are good at "defensing"…. IMHO.
