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 Lord comes to our aid; the Spirit comes to our aid; Christ living in the Christian enables him to live in the Spirit; the example and experiences of the Apostle Paul; the Christian is to be assured of salvation; the example of Ezra and Nehemiah; the Christian needs to realise who he is and what he is.
