This week we will look at three more pieces from the armor of God, faith, salvation and the word of God. Each of these pieces are crucial if we are to stand against the devil in the strength of God's power. Just as a Roman Soldier needed to have his armor to fight in a battle, we too are called to put on God's armor, that we may defend ourselves and secure victory in Jesus.
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 (Eph 6:14–15)
The Bible tells us that our battle in life is not “against flesh and blood” but against “dark forces.” (Ephesians 6:12) Fortunately, God has not left us alone to fight this battle, but has given His people the tools and weaponry to be victorious. In Ephesians 6:10 we see how God’s word reminds us that the only way we will be able to take a stand is “in the Lord and the might of His power.”
