Spiritual Warfare – Do Not Get Entangled

No man that goes to war entangles himself with the affairs of this life;
That he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier II Tim. 2:4.

It is easy to get entangled in this life. It is difficult to stay un-entangled. To be entangled is to become attached in ways that make impossible to be fully committed to living a victorious Spiritual life.

Who are you trying to please? We have an enemy who demands attention. We have a body that likes to be pampered. We have a tendency to lay up treasures on earth. We have a longing for the accolades of men. Who are you trying to please?

Someday the only thing that will matter is if you pleased Jesus Christ who called you to be a Spiritual soldier. Everything else will look like entanglement. Do not allow that to happen. Eliminate the entanglements now. Focus on the Commander in Chief. Fight for Him and His Kingdom.

Be a God-pleaser, not a man-pleaser. Hold possessions loosely. We are only stewards. We own nothing and we have nothing. We are here to prepare for eternity.

Are you entangled? Is your heart divided? Do you have one foot in the world and one foot in God’s Kingdom? That will not work. God demands total loyalty. His battle demands your total energies. He does not want entangled warriors. They are not dependable. They cannot be.

Do not chase things in this life but, God may choose to bless you with material blessings. If He does, it is because He wants you to use those things to build His Kingdom.

No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon Luke 16:13.
