How to Put on God’s Armour
24 May 2020 PM – Ephesians 6:10-18 – Armour – Scott Childs
Welcome: Welcome to our Sunday evening online church service.
Introduction: Daily we face temptations to say ungodly words, to act unkindly, to lust, to get angry, to disobey, to fear to witness, to worry, to gossip, and on and on.
Our text this evening is written to Christians. It tells us that the devil and his demons are behind our temptations (v.12). Though our sinful flesh works against our indwelling Spirit (Gal 5:17), the spiritual powers of the devil and his demons are our greatest foes.
Many, perhaps most, Christians do not know HOW to put on God’s armour and therefore they rarely put it all on and they live in defeat.
Transition: This evening, I want to show you HOW to put on each piece of God’s armour. Just as a soldier, you must daily put on God’s armour. You put on the armour by asking God to help you with each piece. You must memorise this procedure and arm yourself every morning.
Begin with God’s belt of truth
