The Ultimate Armor

February 23rd, 2011


Ephesians 6:10-24

The conclusion is simple: We cannot face the ultimate battle on our own. We never know when “the day of evil” (v. 13) will try to shake us from our daily walk with Christ. We must be prepared however.

At the end of his letter to the Ephesians, Paul reminds the church that all his exhortations and encouragement to them are not enough if these recommendations were applied personally and not corporately. He had spoken to them about unity, obedience, submission, and even good family relationships. He knew that none of these disciplines could keep us from losing the daily battle unless they are enabled by God’s mighty power.

Only God’s ultimate armor gives us the power to conquer the enemy who wants to defeat us. God’s armor of truth, righteousness, faith, and salvation provides true strength, protection, and alertness to remain victorious in all our daily battles.
