The Armor of God-Sharpen Your Sword.

Ephesians 6:17

And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:


You can read the entire text on the Armor of God in Ephesians Chapter 6.

What makes the sword unique among all of the items we have discussed in this series. The sword is the only actual weapon. Everything else has been for purely defensive purpose, while the sword is an offensive weapon.

It is the means by which the battle is carried to the enemy. In one sense, we kill untruth and lies with the truth of God’s Word.

Our sword is an offensive weapon in another very important way.  Our sword, the Word of God, is the only weapon we have available to carry the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost and dying world.

Are our swords sharp? Do we know the Word of God well enough to carry it into the world as our weapon? If it is sharp, do we actually pick it up and carry it into battle?
