The FULL Armor of God

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.” (Ephesians 6:10-11)

In Ephesians 6 Paul talks about the armor of God and outlines each piece of armor meant to cover a different part of our body. He even tells us that we are to put on the full armor of God, not just one or two pieces. So many times, I catch myself going throughout my day without fully putting on my armor. I’ve forgotten something, whether it be my shoes of peace or my shield of faith, and the day just seems hard. God told us in His Word that the armor He’s given us is to protect us from Satan’s schemes, and without it we open to Satan’s attacks. Yet even with God’s armor on, Satan will come at us. But if we’re ready for the battle with our armor in place we’ll be able to stand strong, and block any of the flaming arrows Satan sends hurtling our way.

God has given us everything we need to accomplish His mission of growing the Kingdom of God and furthering our faith. We just need to remember to put on all the armor! In the same way you wouldn’t walk out the door without your pants. Don’t walk out the door until you’ve clothed yourself in the full armor of God.
