Mighty Fortress = Peace
A mighty fortress is our God is about peace not war... If the bulwark never failing... Message is so simple and elegant.
The declaration is personal... individual and collective.
When we stop abiding in Christ alone and seek refuge in ego and popularity, and yes... government.. we are exposed as the frauds which we all are... Deeply flawed, forever fighting... Foolish and even fiendishly selfish...
When we focus on things other than Christ... and service.. we end up fighting.
Such is our reality. In fact, this is as it always has been. The other reality is that the bulwark is there... we need only seek it and we are provided refuge.
