The Armor of God

As followers of Christ, we face a powerful enemy and cannot overcome him in our own power or with our own skills. Instead, our Lord has equipped us with weapons for the battle sufficient to wage and win it. Defensive weapons are designed to protect us from the attacks of our adversary. Offensive weapons are designed to spread the kingdom of God from our communities throughout the world.

Paul, while in prison for his faith, examined the armor of Roman legionaries during his life in the Roman Empire. With the knowledge of the spiritual battles we face day after day, he brings to life the visual and understanding that we need to be equipped with the power of God to stand firm.

2 Corinthians 4:8-9
We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
