MWSB-Feb 1-5: Spiritual Warfare

The class on Spiritual Warfare was taught by the same teacher we had last week: Jim Shuman. Most of the class consisted of getting familiar with what we should know even before we really get into spiritual warfare. We talked about things like who we are in Christ, approaches the enemy uses, living how we believe, and different responses to spiritual attacks. Gradually this turned towards ways to actually defend ourselves against the devil's attacks and attack back. A phrase that Jim mentioned a lot was "Be aware of the devil--be impressed with God."

Thursday was a different day than what we were all used to. Instead of eating breakfast and lunch, we spent the mealtimes fasting, praying and praising God. It was an interesting experience. During what would've been breakfast, we sang and prayed for each other. During what would've been lunch, we sang and prayed for the whole world. At dinner time, we sang some more songs, had communion, and then had a dinner of soup and bread. It's a comforting feeling, knowing that there are people praying for me.
