Series: Pushing Back the Darkness
Topic: Suited for War
Text: Ephesians 6:10-20
As we pray for people of Ukraine in the midst of a physical war, God leads us to prepare for a spiritual war in this series – a war not to be taken lightly. The proper uniform is essential when engaging in warfare. God has given us exactly what we need to fight well and stand firm. We must suit up accordingly to push back the darkness.
Scripture: Paul ends the letter to the church in Ephesus like a general giving final instructions before battle. You can protect yourself from the Evil One by putting on these pieces of armor. Together, discuss each piece of armor and how it can make a difference in your life by “putting it on.”
Accountability: Consider memorizing (at least) verses 14-17 with a friend or your family. It will serve you well.
Transformation: At the end of this passage, Paul identifies himself as “an ambassador in chains.” If you view yourself as Jesus’ ambassador to your world, what “chains,” physical, spiritual or emotional, are you dealing with? How does this impact your ministry as His ambassador?
