That's an old saying for when one person challenged another to a fight. Ready or not, the offense faced the nemesis with courage and boldness (sort of like how Trey faced cancer, his parents, unwanted hugs, loud noises, etc!) :) Or think like a junkyard dog.....alllllllll business to defend his "stuff."
It seems the enemy is really prowling around lately in our families, our friends, our churches, schools, country, and world! Our whole culture is being tempted and attacked. We must fight as children of the Eternal King! The Most High God! Our Victorious Redeemer! Creator of Life and yet Most Intimate Lord of our hearts!
But don't go at it alone.
