“The Whole Armour of God”
“The Whole Armour of God” Sunday, 15 May 2022 10:00 a.m.
We are beginning a new series this Sunday entitled: “The Armour of God”.
The Bible states over and over that we are in a struggle; it is a war of epic proportions and even if we choose to ignore it, it does not negate the fact that it exists. C.S. Lewis, the great theologian from the 40s and 50s in Britain wrote some profound things about this conflict that we are in and here's one of them:
“There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the devils. One is to disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe, and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them.”
There is a struggle, it's very real indeed…. Paul in the book of Ephesians describes it like this:
Ephesians 6: 10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
These verses make it very clear what we must understand if we are to engage the enemy in this struggle: Understand that our Struggle is in His Might, Stand Fully Equipped, have a Strategy that is Well-Informed and know that our Struggle is “Otherworldly.”
