“The Full Armor of God”

The theme of Ephesians chapter 6:10-18 is about how to protect yourself against the attacks of Satan. Verses 16-17 state, In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. This sounds like some pretty serious armor! How do these verses apply to your life? The author of Ephesians is warning us to be prepared. We are in a battle. Dr. Tony Evans points out in his book about spiritual warfare that Satan strikes when we are at our lowest. When our finances are running low, or maybe you have lost your job. It could be the death of a loved one, or a health crisis. Your marriage may be in shambles. What ever battle you may be facing, that is when the enemy is ready to pounce. However, there is a way to win this battle.

God tells us how to strategically fight back. Every single day we have to pick up our shield. That being the written Word of God. Read it. Meditate on it. Then put it into practice. In other words walk the talk. Jesus did not leave this earth without giving us the tools we need to survive. Don’t be foolish enough to think you are insignificant. If you claim to be a Christian then you are Satan’s target.

Satan even tried to tempt Jesus. How did Jesus counter attack? By speaking the very Word of God. This is how we too have to fight. Satan cannot stand up against the Word of God. Remember what the book of James says in chapter 4:7-8. “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you.”

The devil is a liar and he cannot stand up against the truth!

For more truth about the Word of God visit with us this Sunday.
