God created and calls us to be lovers and fighters: love God and people, fight Satan and his works. Satan is real and bent on destroying us. The Bible repeatedly tells us to resist and fight him. When we don’t fight, we get beaten up with things like fear, depression, despair, anger, suicidal thoughts, sin habits, addictions, and the like. Whether you are just learning that you need to fight, or whether you're an old-timer in the ring and want a quick refresher, this series will help you review and practice your spiritual defensive and offensive techniques.
4. Know Your Opponent
NOVEMBER 21--Someone once described boxing as "the science of hitting without getting hit." Every boxer has various strengths and signature moves.

2. How to Fight
NOVEMBER 7--Every fighter needs to know the basics of jabs, crosses, hooks, uppercuts, and footwork. Fights are won and lost in the training room. How can a fighter win if he doesn't train? The same is true of fighting a spiritual battle. You need to know the basics of how to fight your enemy, the Devil. You need to train yourself in them to prepare for when the attacks come. This message is about the basics of what the Bible teaches regarding how to fight spiritual battles. Listen and train.
