In our previous teaching time, we talked about the beginning part of Ephesians 6:17 which described to us the “helmet of salvation”. Today we are going to continue reading this scripture where we learn about the final piece of armor, the “Sword of the Spirit”.
We have read that truth, righteousness, peace, and faith are crucial qualities of the Christian life. But these are not the only things that God tells us that we need. In Ephesians 6:17 we read “Take the helmet of salvation…”. Gather your Bible and open to Ephesians 6 as we continue our study together.
The Armor of God. It is designed to protect us in the spiritual battle that we face each and every day in our Christian lives against our determined, personal, real enemy whose name is Satan. Today, we continue the teaching series “Heroic Living” where we are studying Ephesians chapter 6 with a focus on verse 16 where we are introduced to the Shield of Faith.
One of Satan’s key tactics is to disturb your peace and to get you anxious about your relationship with God. How are we to deal with this? What should be our response? What is “peace”? Let us continue the teaching series “Heroic Living” where we focus on the biblical text in Ephesians chapter 6, verses 10 through 18.
It is righteousness that protects our thoughts, our mind, our feelings, and our emotions.
Why do we need this type of protection? And why does God tell us that we need this type of protection?
Think about these questions as we continue the teaching series “Heroic Living” where we look at Ephesians chapter 6.
We are continuing the Heroic Living series by looking at three essentials if we are going to be able to stand up to the challenges and the struggles that come our way because we are engaged in a spiritual conflict.
As believers in Jesus Christ, we struggle with many unpleasant things in life. And we struggle against a very real opponent whose main tactic is to challenge us of what we believe to be “true”. Today, we are going to continue reading on what God’s Word has to say about all of this in Ephesians chapter 6, verses 10 through 18.
There is a personal opponent that wants to mess you up in life and he does not want you to enjoy following Christ and tries to make you ineffective as God’s child and witness in the world. This opponent’s name is Satan, “the father of lies”. Listen to today’s teaching where we learn about strength and the power of God.
Today’s message is the first of several in the series “Heroic Living” where we focus on the letter that the Apostle Paul wrote to the believers in Ephesus talking about the “armor of God”. This letter is provided to us in the Bible within the book of Ephesians chapter 6.
Last week started the teaching series “Living Fully Devoted to God” where we are listening to what God’s word has to say in Romans 12:1-2. Today’s we continue the series with the message title “Living a Life of Worship”.
