The Armor of God-Stand and Put It On

Originally published in 2014

armor

 Ephesians 6:11

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

Ephesians 6:13,14

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.Stand therefore…………..


If you would like to read the whole text on the armor of God, read Ephesians Chapter 6.

Previously we have discussed the fact that we have a real enemy who seeks to destroy us and the work of God as well. We also discussed the fact that God provides us what we need for this battle. He has given us what we term the Armor of God; and this armor is His and the strength and power that comes with it is His as well.

We aren’t off the hook, however.  Although the armor is provided by God, we have to do our part. Note the imperative verbs the Apostle Paul uses in our devotional verses: Put on, take and stand.  God has clearly communicated to us here His expectation for our role in this battle we fight.

It is not different than a real suit of armor available to a real soldier in a real war. Even that soldier must physically take up and put on the armor, or it does him absolutely no good whatsoever.  His army may have provided him the protection he needs, but he remains responsible to take it, put on on, learn how to use it and then stand against the enemy when the time comes for battle.

The same is true in our spiritual war we fight. God has certainly provided what we need to be successful, but action is required on our part. We will illustrate this more clearly as we go through the rest of our text. We have to take the armor God provides, put it on, learn how to use it and then stand against the enemy.
