Put on the Whole Armor of God
Armor of God
- (Eph 6:10-18 NKJV) Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
- 11. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
- 12. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
- 13. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
- 14. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
- 15. and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
- 16. above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery arrows of the wicked one.
- 17. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
- 18. praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints;
How Much Time do You Have Left to Study?
Let’s look at a one week of 168 hours:
After 107 hours of an average person’s must-do requirements, we leave 61 hours. The average Christian spends 6.5 hours a week at church, and 1.5 hours reading their Bible, which equals 8 hours. This leaves 53 hours for recreation and ministry. The average Christian spends 30 hours watching TV, that still leaves 23 hours.
Is God Really #1 in Our Lives?
According to the Old Testament, they tithed all the first fruits and gave offerings. (Genesis 14:20b NIV) “And Abraham gave a tenth of everything.” What, in today’s society, even after money, is the most precious thing we own?
How much time did our forefathers spend studying the Old Testament? Please take this to prayer. This should be a goal to achieve. New believers need to be taught the importance of studying.
Rule of thumb: Whenever you need to make decisions, ask yourself, “what would Satan prefer I do?”
(Mark 12:30 NKJV) “And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength..” This is the first commandment.
(Mark 12:31 NKJV) “And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”
