Worry and Anxiety
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 cares of this world; the example of Martha; the need for the Christian to reprimand himself; and to exercise self-discipline; 'take no thought for the morrow'; the command of the Lord; lack of faith is unbelief; the problem of guidance; faith and healing; what is the prayer of faith? sensitive to the Spirit.
