“Holy” War

“Rise up, Argent Crusaders! The hour of justice has come!” Highlord Tirion Fordring (Warcraft: Fall of the Lich King)

This post is not about religious holy war done in the ancient world.
Also, it is not about Warcraft war to take down the Lich King as the quote above suggests. I only put it there for fun.
More obviously, it is not about Holy War item in Final Fantasy VIII which makes all players invincible for certain duration.

Sometimes, the hardest war is not war against Satan and his angels.
Sometimes, the fiercest and the toughest war is between us against our flesh.
Our sinful nature can be so tempting and we give in to it.
However, the LORD says we need to be holy like Him, the holy God.

So, here is the real holy war in modern times.
We war against our sinful nature to “maintain” our holines.
Certainly, this war is holy because this war is a righteous war before the LORD.

With the help of the Holy Spirit, we can win this holy war!
