Ephesians 6:10-18:

 - Vs. 10 Be strong.  Don’t be fearful.  Don’t make excuses.  Be strong in the Lord. 

 - Vs. 11 Put on your armor.  All of it. 

 - Vs. 12 You may think that your battle is with people, but it is not. The key to any warfare is to clearly identify your enemy. 

 - Vs. 13 The phrase “whole armor” is being repeated here for emphasis.

 

What have you been standing on? 

1. Your own Strength? 

2. Governments? 

3. Man made philosophies?

4. Security of other people? 

5. Money? 

6. Prestige? 

7. The Solid Rock of Christ?

 

The Armor of God: 

 1. Belt of Truth - A belt is needed to hold a garment up, and it protects. Deception is rampant, but you’ll be protected in the Truth. 

 2. Breastplate of Righteousness - Without this, it is only a matter of time before we fall. 

 3. The Gospel on Our Feet - It’s the foundation, and it’s necessary for movement.

 4. The Shield of Faith - Our faith cannot be hidden, laid down, or put aside.  It must be placed out in front of everything.  A bold, out in front faith will stop the devil’s attacks. 

 5. Helmet of Salvation - It protects your mind. 

 6. The Sword of the Spirit - It is used both offensively and defensively. It is the combination of Word and Spirit. 

 

Like Gideon, We Need to Fight for: 

1. Our Faith. 

2. Our Inheritance. 

3. Our Families.
