The Whole Armour of God
A Sermon on Ephesians 6:14
Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, (ESV)
As followers of Jesus, we fight a daily battle of spiritual warfare as the enemy tries to steal, kill, and destroy. Since this truth has been revealed to us in God’s Word, how do we as Christians take a stand and fight against the devil and his schemes? How do we obtain victory in our spiritual battles rather than continually experience defeat? Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones uncovers the only answer to these questions as he digs deep into the true meaning of standing strong in the Lord and putting on the whole armor of God. Listen as Lloyd-Jones dives into Ephesians 6:14, explaining how these two essential factors go hand in hand equipping us to be victorious over the enemy. He addresses four key points Christians must consider when understanding how to fight spiritual battles. Each of these points helps shed light on how Christians are to begin by standing strong in the Lord, and move to putting on the whole armor of God as protection against the enemy. This truth shows that as God’s followers we have been given the battle plans on how to fight our spiritual battles and how to equip ourselves with the armor we need to live in victory.
About Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981) was a Welsh evangelical minister who preached and taught in the Reformed tradition. His principal ministry was at Westminster Chapel, in central London, from 1939-1968, where he delivered multi-year expositions on books of the bible such as Romans, Ephesians and the Gospel of John. In addition to the MLJ Trust’s collection of 1,600 of these sermons in audio format, most of these great sermon series are available in book form (including a 14 volume collection of the Romans sermons), as are other series such as "Spiritual Depression", "Studies in the Sermon on the Mount" and "Great Biblical Doctrines". He is considered by many evangelical leaders today to be an authority on biblical truth and the sufficiency of Scripture.
