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 danger of bringing the worldly into the Church; worldliness; a state in which we are governed by the mind and outlook of the world; the cares of the world and the Christian life; avoiding worldliness; use; but not abuse; care needed when ministering to the opposite sex; a warning; war against the soul; the Christian reaction to the attacks of the devil; the need to remember constantly our relationship with Christ.
