The things that the Bible promises to the church are the things that we currently have. Like the Holy Spirit—He dwells within the church body (2 Tim. 2:14). We have the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God (Eph. 6:17). Swords were made to be used for something. And when it is all said and done, all that sword-using and Spirit-dwelling culminate in a beautiful feast in Heaven, an inheritance guaranteed by that same Spirit that dwells in us (2 Cor. 5:5). All of these images are realities that we live in every day, with the greatest reality yet to come. Everything under the sun is part of The Story. Think about that. And then go act like you believe it; the power is real.
