My folks got saved in a charismatically oriented church, so I grew up in a charismatically oriented spirituality.
And I’m glad about that.
One illustration: every Sunday morning our family would have a nasty fight before church. It was attributed to spiritual warfare. I think that was (and is) right on.
Of course, such things like fighting with your wife all the way to church (for instance) are a result of indwelling sin. But it is no accident that Sunday mornings before serving and worshipping the Lord tend to draw out those sinful reactions. I think it’s because the enemy who hates our souls and our God wants to ruin our worship on the Lord’s Day.
It’s my fault when I’m a selfish jerk on Sunday mornings, but there is also a very real Enemy.
What about you? Anyone else notice that Sunday mornings are more prime “fight time” than other parts of the week?
