So you say your ready to fight? Well do you know the weapons and armor God has given you? Check it out below.
READ: Ephesians 6:13-18
What are our tools/weapons?
➡️ Belt of truth– This means holding truth of Gods ways and not following moral relativism.
➡️ Breastplate of righteousness– Questions to ask ourself are: Is our life one of moral integrity and confidence in our right standing with God? Do we have these basic things in our life so when are faith (shield) waivers we don’t get taken out? Also, 1 Peter 3:16 says that if we should suffer for righteousness, others will be put to shame.
➡️ Shoes of the Gospel– Have you just got those nice “shoes” in the closet and you are just sitting on the couch not really prepared? Are you excited and ready to use them? In other words, do you really understand the Gospel and how awesome, soul saving and life changing it is?!
➡️ Shield of Faith– This keeps DOUBT and UNBELIEF off of you.
➡️ Helmet of Salvation– Do you really know in your heart and mind you are saved? (By the way…you CAN know for sure! If you don’t know, ask somebody who you know really has a relationship with God.)
➡️ Sword of the Spirit– Do you have the word of God at hand ready to defend AND attack back with what God says! PRAY (call on God) at ALL TIMES by praying in the Spirit (praying the Word)
And most important of all….
Do this all and KEEP ALERT with all PERSERVANCE!
PRAY: Jesus help me to use what you have given me to fight against my own sin and any subtle attacks against my soul. I want to live for You. So help me to stand in confidence that You have already given me everything I need to glorify You and make an impact for eternity!
