The Challenge (Melody B)

Scripture
Eph 6:13-14  
That is why you need to get God's full armor. Then on the day of evil, you will be able to stand strong. And when you have finished the whole fight, you will still be standing.  So stand strong with the belt of truth tied around your waist, and on your chest wear the protection of right living

"The Challenge"

“Aidan,” I yelled, “Get in here”!  I just happened to catch him running out the door.  He was in a big hurry to join his buddies who were starting to build a snow fort in the alley across the street.  He didn’t even have his jacket zipped up. “Your going to get sick young man.” I grabbed his hat, scarf, mittens, snow pants and his fleece lined winter boots and put them on him. I zipped up his coat and sent him on his way out the door.    

As believers we we must depend on God for his protection. Day by day, hour by hour, we face a spiritual war and an enemy who is real. His main aim is to steal, kill and destroy.  Paul wrote in Ephesians 6 that we must put on the FULL ARMOUR OF GOD.

Verse13“ Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil.

Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. 14. Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. 15 For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. 16. In addition to this, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. 17 Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. My prayer for today is Lord wrap us in your loving arms and give us your strength to be able to win this war. Keep us safe from the evil that is all around us. Amen
