Light Sabers and the Spiritual Realm

February 23rd, 2006

I brought this analogy up in small group last night while talking about do battle in the heavenlies…see if you follow. In the original Star Wars movie Luke is learning the ways of a Jedi from Obi-Wan Kenobi. Do you remember the difference in their light sabers? Color, but also strength, thickness and length. While Luke’s was no drinking straw, Kenobi’s saber was noticeably more powerful.

The Word of God is the sword of the Spirit, according to Eph 6. The more Word we have in us, the stronger our ability, along with the Holy Spirit, to defeat the flaming arrows of deception thrown by Satan. In essence, the more we know the Word, the stronger our spiritual light saber is to defeat the enemy. Thicker, stronger and more reach. This is exactly how Jesus battled in the wilderness while being tempted. Three times…it is written.

How much more should we be in the Word, solidifying our values and beliefs against the ageless truths of God? Oh, what a change we would see in the phyiscal realm if we could win more in the spiritual.
