The Almighty Defense
The Apostle Paul mentions a certain sword, shield, helmet, breastplate, belt, and shoes in Ephesians, chapter six. He refers to them as the believer's "armor." Paul clearly commands us to dress ourselves in this "armor" in order that we may effectively fight this spiritual battle in which we find ourselves currently employed. However, even with the presence of a clear command, many Christians today are under the impression that this "armor" is merely for little kids in Sunday school class, and not something that mature Christian adults are supposed to actually "put on."In many ways, we have lost the grandeur and majesty of God's purchased weaponry, and many Christians think of God's "armor" as plastic, dime- store religiosity. The saints of God have not been left here on earth alone to fend for themselves. They have been given every last thing they could possibly ever need in order to thrive in life and godliness.
