Ready for battle
Which is the word of God
The sword holds the power to blind armies, destroy enemies, turn over tables, uproot evil, brand rebellion, and conquer the flesh. It’s the sword of the Spirit, which means it protects the good fruit we seek to bear––love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22)––at the same time destroying those who seek to devour it. The sword does all of that – which means God’s word does all of that.
Put on hope
Nothing in this world compares to what awaits us on the other side. And that is why the helmet of salvation is so important. It’s the piece of armor that will constantly remind us of what we have in Christ.
Shield of faith
We are witnesses
It's time to suit up
Despite Satan’s attacks and the fight he keeps trying to start, this is God’s battle. And God has equipped us to safely stand in the middle of it while He fights around us for us. So it’s time to suit up, my friend.
