The Bible describes Christianity as dynamic and energetic.



There's nothing lazy about it.  The New Testament uses some action-packed verbs to depict our lifestyle.  Words like:  "fight, run, contend, seize, expend, exercise, and labor."  Although Christianity offers an inner repose, it's not a life of leisure. 

Fulfilling the Great Commission demands activity.  Jesus commanded Believers to "go" to reap the harvest.

Again emphasizing evangelism, Jesus used the word "compel" to demonstrate the means of tearing some people from Satan's clutches.

Even Luke's title for Acts indicates the activity demanded for Christian living: "The Acts of the Apostles."  The reason the Holy Spirit accomplished so much in the first century is because Believers were available and willing to cooperate with His plan.

If there's anyone Satan fights it's the action-oriented, "doer of the Word" Christian.  He has a full array of weaponry to distract them and He'll fire and detonate every weapon in his arsenal to oppose them.
