An Evangelism Thought...
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rules, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realm.” Ephesians 6:12 
It is natural and easy to become angry with people, especially when they are opposing God. However, we need to be mindful of a couple of things First, we are not better than they, but have been reconciled to God though the blood of Christ Jesus. Second, they are not the source of our problems, but are themselves victims in need of God’s grace.
