A Sermon on Ephesians 6:10-13


The Whole Armor of God

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. 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. 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. (ESV)

The problem of discouragement; the danger of introspection and self-examination; the importance of realising the truth of salvation by faith; consciousness of a lack of progress; the importance of being ourselves; days of discouragement for the Church; the condition of weariness and tiredness.
