Fight the Good Fight

The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 2 Cor 10:4

In the summer of 1989 the world watched, horror stricken, while brave students faced down tanks and armies sent in to disperse the crowd in Tianamen Square. The media recorded the melee breaking down into bloody chaos, and hopes for freedom and an end to Communist oppression died in the summer heat. Twelve years later I walked in the same Square and realized that the time for revolution has yet to come to China, the Wall is still there, but another much stronger Force is poised to bring about the much needed change.

Countless thousands meet daily to share in the work of His spirit through His Word, as it has since the days of Hudson Taylor. What “tanks” are we willing to stand in the face of to spread the freedom found in Him?

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Galatians 5:1
