We are at War: Be Armed (Part 3) | Ephesians 6:17b
Living a life pleasing to the Lord and engaging in the mission of the church is not easy because there are powerful supernatural beings that strategise and attack. Because of this, God makes available His power and divine resources to believers so they can resist the assaults of these hostile spirits and advance God’s kingdom into the world. Believers are therefore called to be strong in the Lord and His power and put on six indispensable pieces of God’s armour. In this lesson we learn that Christians are to stand firm by taking up the Sword of the Spirit to defend themselves against the devil’s attacks and to advance the gospel against the strongholds of darkness.
- The sword of the Spirit is the Word of God
- The sword of the Spirit must be wielded
- The sword of the Spirit must be mastered
