Spiritual Warfare, Part 4 – Raise Shields!

…”in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming missiles of the evil one.” (Ephesians 6:16) “Having girded (our) loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod (our) feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace”, as Ephesians 6:14,15 instructs us, does not prevent Satan’s attacks. His fiery darts are temptations to sin and come in various forms of thought – doubts, anxieties, fears, etc. If they are not immediately quenched we will be burned by them because “whatever is...

Spiritual Warfare Part 3, Walking in Peace

In Ephesians 6:15, Paul next instructs us to have our “feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace”. Footwear is meant to protect our feet (our foundation), give us stability in order to stand, and improve our mobility. One meaning of this phrase is that we are to have a readiness to share the “good news” of redemption, as Paul exhorts in 2nd Timothy 4:2: “preach the word; be ready in season and out of season.” This means when we feel ‘spiritual’ and when we don’t.

The second piece of armor we must put on is the breastplate of righteousness. The breastplate of the Roman soldiers generally consisted of bronze with a leather backing, and was designed to protect the vital organ of the heart.

  • Chosen By God
    To be chosen by God is quite an incredible thing, because it means that the Lord made a choice to make us His very own. We are chosen to be a royal priesthood, a holy priesthood. Each and every child of God is chosen to be a priest of the Lord. This call of God […]
  • Rejoice In The Lord
    Over the past few weeks, I have been impressed to share the joy of the Lord with others. We can get so bogged down with life’s struggles that we miss the joy of the Lord. Joy is found in being a child of God, not in ministry success, and certainly not in our trials. This […]
  • The Answer
    Does being a Christian eliminate frustration, disappointment, and difficulties in this life? In the sense that we see their existence as temporal, yes, praise Jesus! And we know that they will be completely done away with in the future. However, the fact of life is that these unwelcome occurrences happen to all of us. None […]
  • Prayer
    Let’s talk about prayer. “What is prayer?” some ask. Basically, prayer is communication between God and man; a two-way conversation. Prayer is not a particular bodily posture. It’s not always done with folded hands and closed eyes. (I like to pray when I jog or ride my bike, and I find that very difficult to […]
