Scripture makes it clear: we’re all in a spiritual battle, whether we recognize this or not. The question is, are we living as victims or victors?

In this episode, hosts Tara Rye and Jennifer Slattery speak with Minister Mark Ashton from Christ Community Church in Omaha, Nebraska on how we, God’s children, can approach spiritual battles from a place of victory, knowing we have all we need in Christ to stand firm.
