“The Whole Armour of God – 3”

Key Verse

  “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints”(Ephesians 6: 18).

Text — Ephesians 6:17-18


In our Bible text today, salvation, the ‘sword of the Spirit’ and prayer, are presented to us for the believers’ winning strategy. Actually, you cannot touch the armour of God without salvation. The armour is not for sinners. In a sense, salvation comes first. So, always maintain it. Then comes the “sword of the Spirit” which is God’s Word. The importance of the Word cannot be overemphasized. Rendered as the book of the law, it is a means to all-round success and prosperity (Joshua 1:8). Jesus Himself overcame Satan through the written Word. 

Finally, we come to prayer. Prayer is an offensive resource for making all the other pieces of the armour effective. When saved youths  pray in righteousness with the Word of God in faith, Satan panics. What happened when the early Church prayed for Peter? Of course he was delivered from jail (Acts 12:1-11). We also praise God in prayer. We have learnt in this series that Satan and his evil forces are no match to the power of Almighty Jehovah. The whole armour is all you need.


The armour is not for sinners


Pray without ceasing.

Prayer for today

Heavenly Father, help me retain my armour, in Jesus’ name.
