Donning the Armor, Part II

October 17, 2021 Speaker: Brandon Phillips Series: Preparing for Battle

Topic: Resisting Evil Passage: Ephesians 6:13–6:17

Sermon Outline

In verse 13, Paul reiterates the urgency for the Christian to take up the full armor of God to be able to resist the evil of our day. In Ephesians 6:13-17, Paul gives six critical pieces of armor for resisting the evil one. You must prepare by:

    • Girding yourself with the belt of truth (6:14a)
    • Putting on the breastplate of righteousness (6:14b)
    • Shodding your feet to share the Gospel of Peace (6:15)
    • Taking up the shield of faith (6:16)
    • Taking up the helmet of salvation (6:17a)
    • Taking up the sword of the Spirit (6:17b)

Quotes

As an obedient believer, you are to stand firm in the strength of the Lord, to be sober in spirit, and to remain alert in order to resist the schemes of the devil. However, in all areas of your walk as a believer, you are incapable in your own strength and insufficient in your own resources to overcome the wiles and temptations of Satan. Therefore, you must put on the full armor of God to be an overwhelming conqueror in your continuing spiritual battle. ~ John Broger
If I profess with the loudest voice and clearest exposition every portion of the truth of God except precisely that little point which the world and the devil are at the moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christ. Where the battle rages, there the loyalty of the soldier is proved to be steady… [It] is mere flight and disgrace if he flinches at that point [of attack]. ~ Martin Luther
