Put on the Whole Armour Of God

Ephesians 6:11

Paul admonishes the brethren to be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might. He knew that in the last days the devil would be walking around seeking anyone who is not vigilant and guarded to see if he can deceive or devour them (1 Peter 5:8). The brethren were not to find strength in themselves, but in the whole armour of God.

"Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:" Ephesians 6:10-17.

A soldier who is not fully armed may well pay dearly for his slackness. The enemy is sure to seek out his exposed parts and target them. A Christian's defence is no stronger than his weakest or omitted part in his armour. Knowing what enemy we face, we need to ensure we wear the whole armour as nothing less will keep us safe.

So let us look at the vital armour of God piece by piece.

As Christians facing trials and tribulations on a daily basis I encourage everyone to put on the whole of God's armour every single day so that we can gain the victory over Satan.
