THIS MEANS WAR
“The Battle Against The Flesh” (Part 2)
2 Corinthians 10:3-6
Introduction: We as “Followers of Jesus” are under attack on three fronts—the enemy, the world, and our flesh—and we need to be aware and alert. To be successful in this battle for our soul we must analyze our enemy, utilize our weaponry, and realize our victory.
The Inner Contenders (Galatians 5:16-25)
The Inner Struggles (Romans 7:14-25)
The Inner Strongholds (2 Corinthians 10:3-6)
Definition of Stronghold: Physically—a well-fortified place, something that is entrenched; Spiritually—something that is entrenched in the mind and heart of a person that allows the enemy to bring defeat and destruction to a person.
