Yesterday was “For We Wrestle” and had a WWE take off.  A wrestling gig.  An introduction into Ephesians 6. 

Today,… Flesh and Blood..  A continuation of Ephesians 6:12…..

Yes, we wrestle,….continually…see the above post for a wrestle explanation, ….but we wrestle……. not against flesh and blood.  So, what do we wrestle against?

I don’t know about you…. but the things I seem to always have to deal with are not flesh and blood.  They really aren’t specific people.  There are some people that just aggravate the heck out of me……but the things that seem to bother me are things that seem to creep up on me during the day, during the night, ….just all the time….

I have conflicts with people….conflicts arise, conflicts occur, then conflicts are over.   What seems to happen is I seem to have conflicts after the “people” side of things are over.  I toss and turn, I think about them, I stew about them.  Some of the things I wrestle with are not even associated with people…they are associated with …. well, maybe behaviors or beliefs, thoughts…..  I tend to get aggravated at the drop of the hat sometimes,…. I seem to be proud or arrogant…..I seem to have unclean or inappropriate thoughts…..yes some are well, soft behaviors…others, I want to just strangle people……  The struggle is not with flesh and blood….but against stuff that is ….. well, intangible…  maybe inside…. 

I want to talk about these things that are intangible…..tomorrow.   Still some good stuff to come.  Just trying to do in bite size stuff.

Wrestle…….now “not flesh and blood” …. tomorrow…the stuff we do wrestle with…..
