The gospel is an epic story, all the more epic, because it is real. But every epic story involves a battle, and every battle has an adversary. Because at it's heart, every epic story has a battle between good and evil. I think one of the great problems for our movement today is that for the last few decades the invitation to follow Jesus has read
more like a travel agency brochure than an enlistment campaign. We often hear some form of "Come follow Jesus he will lead you to the live of your dreams."
Rarely do we hear "Come follow Jesus and enlist in the battle against evil for good. Come fight for the heart of your King or die trying!"
We have an adversary. There is a battle. So pray always. That's my challenge in this episode.
