The book of Ephesians ends with the Apostle Paul imploring us to stand, wearing the armor of God, praying always. Often when we read the last chapter of Ephesians we get so interested in the armor of God that we miss the calling, to stand in prayer. I believe that Paul has written this entire letter to give us this one last command. All that he taught: Jesus’ position as Lord of all, our position as being blessed in and through Jesus, the enemy’s position as defeated yet deceptive and our calling to be the church, filled with the fullness of God, leads us to this place of standing firm, praying always and living boldly. My prayer today is that we will grab hold of the purpose of our position and the importance of our mission so that we can live in full obedience, full victory and the fullness of joy.
