SPIRITUAL RESILIENCE

June 9, 2015

Tuesday

 

Ephesians 6: 10-18

 

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armor 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 armor 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: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

 

 

LESSON

 

Paul is telling the church what Christians must have in order to stand against worldly pressures. In other words, how to survive Spiritual Warfare because there was a great deal of satanic activity going on in Ephesus. Paul had encountered this first hand before so he wanted to address this issue.

We are engaged in spiritual conflict and need to be aware of resources available to us to enable us to be victorious. The stakes in this war are high because the price is heaven or hell, life or death, darkness or light, freedom or slavery, reward of punishment. We have the power of the living God available to us. Jesus has already won the war, the victory is ours! Put on the armor of God. Put on the strength and power of Jesus Christ. And we will have victory in our battle.
