This past month our church’s pastor is teaching from the Book of Ephesians. I have been reviewing it with the women at the Hoving Home at the same time. I especially like Chapter 6 as God informs us how to be His Warrior. Christ explains what we need to wear in order to defeat the enemy on a daily basis.
Ephesians 6 – The Armor of God
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
- Are you a member of the Lord’s Army?
- Are you putting on the full armor of God every day?
- Are you prepared to defend your Christian beliefs?
Because Satan tries to rob, steal, and destroy God’s people and our faith. We must defend ourselves by putting on God’s armor every day.
My prayer for you is that you will decide to accept Jesus as your Savior, learn to put on the full armor of God daily, remain strong in your faith, and follow Christ for the rest of your life.
