Mighty Armor

13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Ephesians 6:13-17

When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade, right? What Paul is talking about here are gifts from God that must be put into use. So often overlooked, the armor of God that each of us have may be metaphorically sitting in the back closet collecting dust.

The world we live in is full of evil and evildoers. We must take a stand against these people and these talks. Jesus has equipped us to have the armor of the divine! When us Christians get attacked in word and maybe even physically, we must respond with the truth of God, the Word of God, and blast them in faith which can be so powerful.

With the mighty armor of God that each of us have, we can create and form the biggest army for Christ ever known to man. When each of us hold each other accountable and not let evil get in the way of truth, the world will start to change. Being a Christian means being a warrior of truth and righteousness in today’s very secular world. We may all struggle with putting our armor on and keeping it on, but when we are united and don’t lose sight on Christ, that is when our Gospel message becomes more powerful. Leading by example in this world is the true way to lead, and we all must lead by truth, righteousness, and most important, faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Prayer: Almighty and Merciful God, you have equipped us with the strength and faith to proclaim and defend your Good News. Be with us so that we may remember that we always have your armor on us so that the truth about you is always spoken. Help us spread to others the Gospel message of Jesus to all with the help of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
