“Life Jacket”.

Key Verse

“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” Ephesians 6:11

Text — Ephesians 6:11-18


A life jacket is a personal flotation device in the form of a vest or suit that is worn to prevent the wearer from drowning in a body of water. Life jacket is a must to have for anyone that wants to travel by sea. All aircrafts also provide it for every passenger in case of emergency. Without life jacket, even the strongest swimmer on earth can’t stay afloat forever without tiring out and drowning.

Life is like a sea: sometimes it’s calm and still, other times it’s rough and irregular. We often need a life preserver to help us stay afloat. A full packaged life jacket for believer is the armour of God which includes salvation, speaking the truth at all times, living a righteous life, living by and preaching the word of God, faith in God and a life of consistent prayer. In perilous times, the full armour of God keeps us from drowning in life’s troubles. A life jacket will not do you any good if you are not wearing it. Wear it at all times so that you will be able to stand against the attacks and all the tricks of the devil, the arch enemy of Christians. Believers are travelling on a stormy sea and only those with life jackets are sure of safety and protection.
