REs and Spiritual Warfare

RE Bill Mueller (PCA) has posted an article at The Aquila Report on the topic of Spiritual Warfare. It's a quick read, but also a good reminder that there is more to being an elder than procedural reports and Session minutes.

Interestingly, at the Bible study I lead last night, we discussed Matt 26:41 ("The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak."). I said that, in my opinion, that verse could be the motto of the Christian life: a constant struggle between the New Man and the Old. Elders are called upon more than others to bare the burdens of those in the churches in addition to their own struggle. Therefore, "Watch and pray."
