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 wiles of the devil; the importance of self-examination; the reading of Scripture essential; superficial reading; the three main lines of attack; the error of imbalance; the balance between knowledge and experiences; emotion; not emotionalism; the charge of over-enthusiasm; the Christian's failure to submit himself to God's way of delivering man.
