Ephesians 6 is where we find Paul’s teaching about “the armor of God”. The few verses that precede the details about the armor are often lumped in with the rest, but I believe that those verses are given to us as a preparation for the tools that we have been given by God. Tools taken without understanding of their purpose can often become useless in our hands. Today we have tried to focus on the purpose of the armor so that we will be prepared to walk in its fullness. Our key points are: God is building strength in you; you will wrestle and victory is in the midst of standing. I pray that each of us will take courage in God’s promises, embrace God’s preparation and stay focused on God’s purpose. He will finish everything He has started and He will fulfill everything that He has promised.
