Spiritual Armor

Ephesians 6_12-13 imageIt’s illogical! No one does it! No one in their right mind would leave home for the day exposed. It not only breaks social custom but you are unprotected from the elements.

Every day, though, Christians leave their homes unprotected from the spiritual elements they will meet. And as surely as we’re exposed without our clothes, we’re just as exposed for spiritual battle without our armor. The armor of God is something we put on and keep on because every day is a day of spiritual battle. The unprotected are persecuted or hurt.

The attacks of satan are ceaseless, crafty, and repeatedly searching for any place in our defenses that is exposed. Whether to cause us to doubt God’s love for us, or compromise our integrity, or confuse us with doctrines of lies and half truths, our only defense is to gear up for battle every day. Supported with truth, wrapped by righteousness, guarded by faith, and transformed by salvation, we are ready to face the day.

Why would you leave yourself exposed to Satan?

In Battle

We’re all in a battle of some sort. These battles are not of this world, though. It is Spiritual warfare.

Scripture expresses it this way:

Our fight is not against people on earth but against the rulers and authorities and the powers of this world’s darkness, against the spiritual powers of evil in the heavenly world. Ephesians 6:12

We need the Holy Spirit. He gives us power. Read scripture for yourselves. You can see.

Only a fool accepts the allegations of the enemy. If we’re ever going to really be free, we need to completely sell out to Christ.

The message is clear; there is no middle ground. Either we serve God or we serve worldly materialism.

Jesus said: “No one can serve two masters. The person will hate one master and love the other, or will follow one master and refuse to follow the other. You cannot serve both God and the world. Matthew 6:24

It’s you choice! Choose wisely!

But if you don’t want to serve the Lord, you must choose for yourselves today whom you will serve. … As for me and my family, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15 [Emphasis mine. Read the whole word in Scripture.]

Who do you choose? Where do you find yourself today? What season are you in? Comment, let’s chat!
