Donning the Armor, Part IV

Speaker: Brandon Phillips Series: Preparing for Battle Category: Resisting Evil Scripture: Ephesians 6:13–17

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)


"Faith upholds a Christian under all trials, by assuring him that every painful dispensation is under the direction of his Lord; that chastisements are a token of His love; that the season, measure, and continuance of his sufferings, are appointed by Infinite Wisdom, and designed to work for his everlasting good; and that grace and strength shall be afforded him, according to his need." ~ John Newton
"But though these are all armor, yet faith is an armor for his armor; it is not only a defense for him, but a defense for his defenses. Thus faith not only shields the man, but shields his graces too." ~ Charles Spurgeon
