We're all born into a culture that shapes how we see the world and others. But for all of us in Christ, the question is the same: how do we live in Christ within our culture? At the close of his letter, Paul finishes up the "house code" section before he gives his final instruction about the reality of spiritual warfare. Our culture has mixed views on the supernatural but for those in Christ, we've got to wake up to the reality that our life is under attack by unseen forces. It's fitting, then, that Paul should close his letter about our life in Christ with the reminder to "be strong in the Lord" no matter what comes our way.
