Daily Challenge-Full Armor of God

August 9th, 2021 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Endurance, today’s Daily Challenge motivates us to take up the full armor of God.

Ephesians chapter 6 gives us a clear impression that the Christian life is lived out on the spiritual battlefield. We are engaged in a struggle that is winnable, but we need God’s help to overcome.

Verse 10 says, “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

To fight the good fight of faith, we need to be able to properly identify our allies and enemies. We also need to use the armor that God provides for us to take our stand for Christ and to stand against the devil’s schemes.  The armor of God is useful for helping us to stand firm in the faith during life’s daily struggles.

Take the daily challenge to put on the full armor of God on the journey of faith.
