Mans Greatest Problem - Self
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)
Man's greatest problem; self; the example of the meek and lowly Jesus; the devil encourages pride; the example of the church at Laodicea; facing and examining ourselves honestly; all gifts are from God; the Christian is what he is entirely by the grace of God; the need to die to self.
