Wesley's Notes for 2 Corinthians 10:3


10:3 Though we walk in the flesh - In mortal bodies, and, consequently, are not free from human weakness. Yet we do not war - Against the world and the devil. After the flesh - By any carnal or worldly methods. Though the apostle here, and in several other parts of this epistle, speaks in the plural number, for the sake of modesty and decency, yet he principally means himself. On him were these reflections thrown, and it is his own authority which he is vindicating.

    Verse 4 shows that we are to be engaged in a spiritual warfare and not a physical one.
  • Neil
    As a counsellor I see the power of strongholds sometimes called a home for thoughts in our heads as the greatest problem people face. At some point in their lives they have believed a lie or several lies. These lies must be replaced with the truth of God that we may be free indeed. Satan as the Father of all lies will allways use that weapon. Our greatest weapon is truth.
  • This verse is very true. We have to be aware of out thoughts always. The devil is always waiting for his prey. Let us offer our thoughts to GOD
