“Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil.” Ephesians 6:13 (NLT)
While remaining in the beauty of the gospel and our new life in Christ and walking daily as faith brings tangible actions to life, there remains one more objective for the Christian to pursue: standing firm. Our goal with the Armor of God series is to bring richness and depth to your understanding of each piece of armor included in Ephesians 6, equipping you with 28 key verses over the course of 7 months. Through an in-depth look at what the Bible says about truth, righteousness, peace, faith, salvation, and the Word of God, we hope you will feel more confident and prepared to stand strong in your walk of faith.
Our first month together will be a summary of what the armor of God holds, memorizing Paul’s description in Ephesians 6:14-18; for the following six months, we will zoom in on each piece of armor, referencing verses from across the Old Testament and New. We hope that spending one month on each item will give us a strong understanding of the context of the resources we have as Christians in our ongoing battle against sin and darkness.
