Be Armed and Ready!

Putting on the Whole Armor of God

Rebekah L Holt

“Is not our life a warfare? It is so; for we struggle with the common calamities of human life.  Is not our religion much more than warfare? It is so; for we struggle with the opposition of the powers of darkness, and with many enemies that would keep us from God and heaven.  We have enemies to fight against, a Captain to fight for, a Banner to fight under, and certain rules of war by which we are to govern ourselves.” Matthew Henry

 
Equipped for the Battle of Life –

To face the battle of life—the Lord has provided us with armor that is 100% impenetrable, bullet proof—spiritually speaking!

Ephesians 6: 10-18 is the familiar passage outlining the armor of God:

“Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:  Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.”
