Put on the full armor of God= SUIT UP!

Ephesians 6:10-18

"Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 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. 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. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—"

These are some of my notes from Pastor Stephen's awesome sermon this past Sunday! Want to hear it? Check out SermonAudio to see it posted! It is coming soon!

When we choose to believe Satan's lies, we can be robbed of several things. Joy. Peace. Comfort. Hope. Confidence. When we are robbed of those things, God is robbed. He is robbed of His glory. Others are robbed of hearing about the Gospel from us. We are in a spiritual warfare. We are either on God's side or the devil's side. 1. Satan is a real person. 2. It is possible that we can be outwitted by Satan. 3. How can we fight being outwitted by Satan? The devil is strategic. We cannot underestimate in this battle what God has given us to fight with.

Nine Things that we are to suit up with:

1. Truth
2. Righteousness of Jesus
3. Gospel of Peace
4. Faith
5. Salvation
6. Word of God
7. Prayer in the Spirit
8. Persevering Alertness
9. Cooperative Prayer

"Greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world."

I highly suggest that you listen to the sermon!!

Suit up!
