Taking Captivity Captive
by Pastor Carter Conlon
Ephesians chapter 4 and verse 8, “Therefore he says, when he ascended on high, he led captivity captive and gave gifts to men.”
There’s a story in the Bible where a young prophet, called Elisha, took captive an enemy army that had arrived to captivate the people of God. He did it through prayer. He led the whole army to a place where they were vulnerable, but instead of harming them, he fed them, and sent them home.
Today, you and I have this same authority. We can pray that even the enemies of God suddenly become aware of the peril of their condition. Then, through our kindness, may they return to their homes knowing that God is love. Yes, we have this authority; it’s ours in Christ.
Remember now, it’s time to pray!
