The Sword of the Spirit (Ephesians 6:10-17)Bro. Mike Meade, February 25, 2018
Part of the Preparing for Battle series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
The full armor of God consists of 6 pieces of equipment. Five of those are defensive pieces while only one is offensive in nature; the sword of the Spirit.
The piercing sword of the Spirit cuts deep to the heart of the believer. It gets down to the private thoughts and feelings of the individual. Just like a real life sword can cause deep damage, the sword of the Spirit can reach deep into the heart of the believer and wound us greatly.
This sermon completes our study the Armor of God. Are you gearing up daily? Are you equipping yourself for a daily battle? If you forget even one of the pieces of the armor, then you leave yourself open to attack from the enemy. Be on guard, and gear up!
