During World War II, General George Patton embodied the American Spirit.
His legacy inspired stories, folklore, and a popular movie about his life.
Known as "Old Blood and Guts", his ambition and drive led one of the most
successful campaigns of the war. His Seventh Army swept across Sicily with
precision maneuvers and speed, and his Third Army gained more ground and
took more prisoners than any other army in modern history.
As impressive as Patton's armies were, believers are equipped and
battle-ready to do more than Patton dreamed. Paul reminded the Corinthian
believers that the "weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but
divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying
speculations and every lofty thing raised up against knowledge of God, and
we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ" (2
Corinthians 10:4-5 NASV).
Do you need to take some prisoners in your life? Take those thoughts
captive to the obedience of Christ today.
