This week we conclude our 6 sermon series “Ready for Battle” as we have looked deeper into the call Paul gives us to take up the armor of God. Now that we have carefully looked at each the tools God has given us and by God’s grace “taken them up”, what is it that God would have us do? What are our orders as we stand firm against the schemes of the enemy? And who’s battle is this anyway?
Ephesians 6:13-18 "Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,"
