In today's first reading from Ephesians 6, Paul advised the Ephesians to stand firm against the tactics of the Devil. He wrote, "Draw you strength from the Lord and from his mighty power." To receive strength and power fully from the Lord, we must be fully in the Lord. To be in the Lord is to be one with the Lord in union with him. Only then shill we become fearless, for Christ has replaced us in us. This should be our wish and goal.
