When the Devil Attacks
In Ephesians 6:10-20, we are told that following Jesus can be a struggle. In fact, we are at war with the devil and can expect many struggles of many kinds throughout our lives. However, God has not left us alone to fight against our spiritual enemy with our own weapons. In Ephesians 6:17, we read about the final three weapons that God has given us to defeat our enemy. Always have them handy.
(Eph. 6:17a) Always wear salvation, for it is like a soldier’s helmet.
(Eph. 6:17b) Always wear the Bible, for it is like a soldier’s sword.
(Eph. 6:18-20) Above all, always pray.
The Big Idea: A well-dressed soldier of Jesus Christ always is ready for battle because he or she is dressed and armored to fight and win.
