Live as the Spiritual Soldiers of Christ
Live as the Spiritual Soldier of Christ daily! (Ephesians 6:10-20)
Christian life is not the bed of roses. We live in the real world of battles of all sorts. We have the real enemy called Satan. Apostles encouraged all the Christian believers to be the spiritual soldiers of Christ. He encouraged us to take the full spiritual armour of God to fight against the evil one. Although he described these six visible armours like an ancient Roman soldier would have, but the seventh armour is prayer that is invisible armour for Christian soldiers. We need to be strong in the Lord and stand firm against devil’s schemes. These armours of God are mentioned in Ephesians 6:10-20. They are (1) Belt of truth, (2) Breastplate of righteousness, (3) Shoes or Sandals of the gospel of peace, (4) Shield of faith, (5) Helmet of salvation, (6) Sword of the Spirit as the Word of God, and addition to this is (7) Prayer. Let us not give up fighting against the devil through our spiritual armours. Be bold and be brave as Christ has won the victory for you already when he gave his life on the cross as a sacrifice for the punishment of your sins. He rose again from the dead victoriously to give you eternal life. We can live in victory as we put on full armours of God daily in our lives.
