What Happens When...
...We Suit Up
October 31, 2021 • Ephesians 6:14–17
Ephesians 6:14-17 14 Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. 15 For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared.[e] 16 In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. 17 Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God
...We Stand In The Struggle
October 17, 2021 • Ephesians 6:10–12
I remember when I was a kid playing in construction areas where bulldozers had push up huge piles of sand or dirt. We would run up and down, ride our Schwinn Stingray up and down (BMX wasn't yet a "thing"), and almost without fail, there was one game that always broke out. King of the Mountain. (or Hill) Whoever makes it to the top is the King. Everyone runs up the hill to try and knock the king off the hill. Then you're the king, until someone knocks you off. And so on... Why do you want to be the person at the top? Because you have tactical advantage. You can see what's coming. And we all know what's coming. Someone is going to try to knock us down. This is an interesting metaphor for life, and very much the life of a Christian. There is something amazing that happens when we STAND in the STRUGGLE, relying up on the strength of God instead of our own, using the tools that He has given us and the assurance of victory.
