Ephesians 6:10-17: "...and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God."

John Climacus said, "Let us charge into the good fight with joy and love, without being afraid of our enemies. Though unseen themselves, they can look at the face of our soul, and if they see it altered by fear, they take up arms against us all the more fiercely for the cunning creatures have observed that we are scared. So let us take up arms against them courageously. No one will fight with a resolute fighter."

Leonard Ravenhill said, "A popular evangelist reaches your emotions. A true prophet reaches your conscience."


Today, we are going to continue looking at the sixth piece of armor -- the sword of the Spirit. The Bible tell us to take "the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God."

As you can tell from the amount of time we are spending on this particular piece of armor, it is very important. In fact, all of the pieces of our armor -- the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the shoes of the Gospel of peace, the shield of faith, and the helmet of salvation are all tied to the truth of God’s Word.

When we put on the belt of truth, we are putting on the truth of God’s Word. When we put on the breastplate of righteousness, we are clothing ourselves in the righteousness of Christ by obeying the word of God. When we put on the shoes of the Gospel peace, we are preparing ourselves to share the good news contained in the Bible with all whom we come in contact with. When we arm ourselves with the shield of faith, we are able to thwart and deflect the schemes of the enemy because of our firm belief in God’s Word. When we put on the helmet of salvation, we take comfort in the assurance of our rebirth and in the hope of Christ’s second coming — both of which are spoken of in Scripture.
