Warriors train. They train hard to keep themselves fit and ready for battle. Paul sees the same requirement for those who would pit themselves against Satan’s warriors. He often uses military metaphors because he lived in lands where soldiers were constantly present. Rome ruled by force. The sight of their strength resided in their soldiers always ready for combat at a moments notice and stationed around the world.
How do you exercise your spiritual muscles? Do you meet with God every day? Do you read a few verses and pray a few words or do you really have a spiritual workout? Do you dig into His word to see what He's trying to tell you and how He wants you to live each day? Do you actively work to transform your mind to His will and begin to think the way He thinks?
