Food and Drink
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)
For the Christian the real life is yet to come; the Christian life is one of preparation; becoming stronger in the Lord; the Lord as food and drink to the Christian; the importance of systematic Bible reading; the Old Testament as a source of warning; the New Testament epistles; and their purpose; the importance of prayer.
