My husband has been teaching on Ephesians 6:10-17.
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.
11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.
12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.
13 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.
14 Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
15 and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace.
16 In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one;
17 and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, ESV
During the discussion we talked about how we need to put on the Armor of God, not in case Satan will attack, but because Satan will attack. During an attack is the wrong time to be trying to put on the Armor of God. We must put it on ahead of time because otherwise we are defenseless sheep.
John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. ESV
So you sheep have you put on the whole armor of God?
Belt of Truth
Breastplate of Righteousness
Shoes for your feet the Gospel of Peace
Shield of Faith
Helmet of Salvation
Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God
If so then you can stand against the wiles and schemes of the Devil and his fiery darts.
