There is a spiritual war going on all around us. There is a battle underway for the world we live in. I love how C. S. Lewis describes it:
“Enemy-occupied territory—that is what this world is. Christianity is the story of how the rightful king has landed, you might say landed in disguise, and is calling us to take part in a great campaign of sabotage.” ~ Mere Christianity
Jesus is the King that has invaded enemy occupied territory on a mission to reclaim the land that is rightfully His. And He’s called you and I to take part in His campaign to sabotage the Devil and remove him from power. You, my friend, are a secret agent in God’s army.
Your Mission Should You Choose to Accept It
Want a mission from God? Well, you have one. Recently, I wrote an article about divine burdens and discovering what God is calling you to do. But, as Christ Followers, there is one calling that we all have in common. We are called to be secret agents in the war against the Devil.
You might say, “Jeff, I don’t know what you are talking about. I’m not involved in any war.” I beg to differ. In fact, scripture makes it clear that we are all at war. Look at this verse:
Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring–those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus. Revelation 12:17 NIV
Do you do your best to keep God’s commands? Do you hold fast to your testimony about Jesus? In other words, do you claim to be a follower of Jesus? If so, then you are part of God’s family — a descendant of Jesus — and the dragon is waging war against you. Therefore, you are a part of this war whether you like it or not.
Furthermore, Jesus is asking for your help. He wants you to recruit and train more secret agents to fight this war. Your mission is called the Great Commission:
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you...
Matthew 28:19-20 NIV
How Can You Sabotage the Devil Today?
As a secret agent for God, He wants you to help open the eyes of others so they can also see the war going on all around us. He wants you to sabotage the lies of the Devil by spreading the truth throughout the land. You are a secret agent operating in enemy territory and God needs your full service. What will you do today to support your King and His efforts to overthrow the Devil?
